Oddboy, Art, Wod (and Tiplodocus) - I just re-read the first three issues of M*****man again (they're the only ones I have here) and if you want, I'll happily send these to be loaned to those who've never read them.  Part one leaves everything hanging and you'll just go 'gah bah funk' until you get to read more.  The first three issues are at least a full story arc...

Anyway, just thought I'd offer.  Send me a mail if you're interested.

Cheers, ming

No idea, sorry.

While we're at it. what ever happened to ickle Ralphy Bryce?

c. Prog 121 (I think), little orphan Ralphy wants to be a Judge, Dredd pulls strings and gets him in the academy (even though he's too old); he's useless and gets thrown out, then adopted, but is very pissed off.

Bring back Ralphy Bryce - villain-in-waiting...

Alternatively, we could just have a thread where people post 'this week, I'm mostly reading...' and can mention other books they've got lined up, and make a recommendation of a great book they read in the last 12 months.

I'm always keen to get some ideas for new stuff to read.

ming - who's half way through Iain M. Banks' Against a dark background (again)
lined up: various Raymond Chandler and the Saki complete short stories
recommended: Humanity: a moral history of the 20th century, by Jonathan Glover

Not the best cover in the world, by any means, but a favourite of mine is Prog 244 (Ace Trucking; 'Hit them jackers with the old blazooga biff', etc), for the simple reason that my brother had a picture printed in it, and as a nipper I was well impressed by that.  Subsequently, someone wrote in and complained that he'd copied it (which he had), and he was sent a Rigellian hotshot!  Yeeouch!

Trout - is that postcard book the one with the -ahem - 'Purple Hood'?
If so, a nice book, and I remember thinking the same thing about Bob Monkhouse - quite a surprise, to say the least.

JBC, DXB - I Just noticed a couple on ebay - I'll put a link to one of them below, and paste the details of the other one as well.

Has anybody read this?  I never even saw it at the time...

Let us know if it's any good!

My all time great dream was while working on the Canary Islands (big bits of which have suddenly fallen into the sea in millennia gone by).

Briefly: night, on a big ship, looking back at the island with towering cliffs, big storm, huge waves, wind, ship all over the place, ship starts to sink.

Waves crashing against the OTHER side of the island, but splashing all the way over to the side I can see; the island then starts to sink.  Island sinks completely, boat sinks completely, then I'm just swimming about at night in a calm sea, beautiful starry sky but no land anywhere.

Swam around for a while and then got picked up by some kind of hospital ship complete with nurses, blankets and hot soup.  Woo-hoo!

Hello all,

I just noticed the first 78 progs, including progs 1 and 2 with gifts, on e-bay, going cheap (?200-ish, with 2 days left).  I'd bid, but I'm skint.  Just thought I'd spread the word.
