Arh man I want this to really work. I hope there's the chance to do a fresh edit from what we've seen in the Meg which felt a little imbalanced?

The earlier parts felt empty and lacking some content which for the latter parts where more completed and yes I believe an edit will be needed
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

One of the best things about turning the original Thrill-Power Overload articles into a book was the chance to revise and expand the text. IIRC The First Thirty Years hardback added 40,000 words. The 2017 edition added another big chunk to that.

Only 6 years until TPO50?

Is the only difference between the standard hardcover and the webshop exclusive version the A2 poster? Seems like quite a big price jump?

Is this the same as the recent stuff we’ve been getting from the Megazine?

I haven't got one yet, but I'm curious to know if they repaired the glitches in their matrix. Mek-Quake!

And now apparently I’m getting a second copy of this with the A5 poster, which I originally ordered in the first place.
