Just time for a quick update as I sit on the train moving at speed towards London town. The ever official TOS has revealed that we can finally purchase the unabridged version of the first Red Dwarf novel, Infinity: Welcomes Careful Drivers. It lasts eight hours and costs £9 which, as Andrew points out, is pant shittingly good value. The even better news is that it’s not an iTunes exclusive, but is instead being distributed through Audible.com, which is perfect for all us curmudgeons who would rather kill ourselves than install the Windows version of anything from Apple.
Over the years there has been a great many pieces of official Red Dwarf merchandise, including some high quality titles such as The Making of Red Dwarf, Red Dwarf VIII: The Official Book and The Official Red Dwarf Companion. However, The Log: A Dwarfer’s Guide to Everything – written by Craig Charles Russell Bell and published in 1997 – is neither official or even in the vague realm of high quality. It is completely and utterly shit.
While I try to remember how many times we’ve used a variation of (or EXACTLY THAT) title for a news item, let’s have a bit of an old catch up.
Hello. I’m John Hoare. You may remember me from such websites as Ganymede & Titan, Noise To Signal, or, erm, asylum.acornarcade.com. Sorry for the lack of updates round here – more of which in a bit (quite literally) – but first we have to get updated on at least the big piece of news at the moment.
