  1. Thanks for the recommendation, I read this over the weekend and found it completely absorbing. I think I'd definitely class this as science fiction / speculative fiction; articles about the author mention that this work is a core text in the Afrofuturism movement - something I was ignorant about but am exploring further as I love the central idea.
  2. There's a couple of interesting looking 2000ad events coming up soon. The free online convention looks like it should be pretty sweet: https://2000ad.com/news/star-studded-online-convention-to-celebrate-45-years-of-2000-ad/. If you're London-based (or happen to be around) Dinner Party Gallery are hosting a 2000ad-themed event too. https://www.instagram.com/p/CbIGCEGtPlu/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link (sorry, tried to embed the Instagram code but it didn't work - you'll have to check out the link).
  3. This is a fine recommendation; Roadside Picnic is essential reading.
  4. You might already have done this but you can borrow lots of digital comics and graphic novels from libraries through the Libby app (https://libbyapp.com). You do need to register with the library that holds whatever you want to read but it does seem that many of them are pretty relaxed about lending to people that are outside their traditional catchment (ie locals) and it only takes a few seconds.
  5. I don't have an awful lot of electronic stuff from my early childhood as we were a bit on the poor side (cue violins etc) but the earliest game that I still possess is Grandstand Scramble which I think I got for xmas 1983. It still works but the box is in a bit of a sorry state. My brother has a working Puck Monster from 1982-ish.
  6. I expect if you're an adult with a condition that makes it hard to learn something most children can do you'd probably want to practice somewhere private, although that's a pretty flimsy rationale for using that setting in the episode.
  7. Holmes and Yo-Yo. This really is a stretch but I think a robot cop should qualify as a superhero:
  8. Man from Atlantis. I guess this qualifies as a superhero?
  9. Poor Behemoth. The thing that most lets them down is that they're don't seem to be very good drivers. The guy from Eruption is an example of how to drive a flipper well, Behemoth just can't seem to get the hang of positioning themselves and are always flipping early or missing chances.
  10. Fingers crossed! They sell tickets in tranches like that so they might well release more.
  11. I think we spent about three or four hours in the Experience all together (bear in mind this was our sixth visit in three years). If you whizzed around you could probably have a good look at everything in around 90 minutes or so. There's a really nice balance of classic and new series props and costumes.
  12. Just over £25 after fees: http://www.doctorwho.tv/events/doctor-who-experience/ticket-information/
  13. We were there last weekend. The staff didn't know of an exact closing date yet (or were unwilling to say if they did) and some seemed to think that there was a strong possibility that it might survive in some form or another. It's awesome, by the way, and totally worth visiting. At the moment they're selling tickets that combine the Experience plus a tour of the TARDIS set at the nearby BBC studios.
  14. Second this recommendation! I loved everything about this trilogy, even the at times slightly pulpy writing style (maybe this is a result of the translation?).
  15. I picked this up in a recent Humble Bundle. I've only had a couple of hours to play so far but I'm loving it. In my first five minutes I managed to club to death a naked guy working on a tree, killed a sleeping person then got mowed down in a hail of bullets. I switched to a quieter server just to get used to the mechanics; it's not so much fun when potential death doesn't lurk around every corner but it's much, much easier than hiding in a bush every time a leaf rustles or gun shots go off in the distance. I'm going to switch back to a busier server once I'm a little more experienced.
