A book recommendation for all fans of classic sci-fi

Get yourself a copy of this wonderful book if you’re a fan of classic sci-fi:

Dan Dare: Spacefleet Operations Manual (Haynes Owner’s Workshop Manual)

It is based on Frank Hapmson’s original version of Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future from the 1950s and 60s, the golden age of the character.

There is an excellent review of it in the Daily Mail website, which includes some of the actual book illustrations.

Amazon.co.uk have a good deal on it, and it is good value considering the high quality of the book.

Hillsborough: Sir Norman: I have nothing to hide – Yahoo! News UK

Hillsborough: Sir Norman: I have nothing to hide – Yahoo! News UK.

This whole thing is disgusting, shameful and downright sick! The truth is out now at long, long last: the police got together and altered over 160 witness statements so that they could avoid taking the blame, because they – not the fans as they claimed – caused the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster! Absolutely shockingly outrageous!!

Every single police officer involved in this should get 10 years in jail to set an example to others. But that’s never going to happen of course, I bet only a few unlucky low-level suckers get made into scapegoats while the real culprits get away with it, same as always!

Gee, I’m so proud to be English at the moment. Bleh!

Family fun

It’s a very special family time for me at the moment – Su and I have been married 4 years, our daughter Lily was born at the end of June just gone, our son Boss is 6 years old in another 10 days, and my parents are over here in Thailand with us for the first time ever. It is wonderful to be a family man, I wouldn’t change any of it for anything!
