Lovingly restored classic issue of FM #10. Great slice of nostalgia and a snip at the price. Try finding a mint print copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction Classic!, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great page-turner. About a man who thinks he's going crazy because he thinks he can hear 'voices'. He can... They're telepathic non-corporeal beings, intent on taking over the world! He discovers he is he's a prototelepath and can fight them on their own terms, just as well, they're gunning for him, trying to kill him.

Plausible, well written novel. I only started it yesterday. One for book lovers who enjoy something above run-of-the-mill stuff. Recommended.

Just got an xBox and needed a game with plenty to do for my 6 year old grandson. He loves it! It challenges him without being too difficult and keeps him busy. Seller despatched very quickly. Pleased.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing..., 4 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Shada (Hardcover)
After reading all the hype I was looking forward to this very much, however when I begun to read it I realised how poorly written it was. The author is very experienced and I've read other works but seems to have subdued his usual intelligent style for a style of writing that dumbs down to the lowest common denominator of very short chapters and TV style 'cutting' from one 'scene' to another as if he just expects those with a poor attention span to read it. Have sold my copy on eBay.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'New' Doctor Who comes of Age..., 20 Nov. 2011
I must admit that what attracted me to this book was The Ice Warriors on the cover. I just love the tardis in the snow flanked by Ice Warriors with broadswords! That said I found this book to be an engaging read, well written with a healthy respect for the show, but (more importantly) NOT dogged with super-continuity/history.
As a long time enthusiast I loved the 'old' series of BBC Dr. Who books from the 1990s which featured the 8th Doctor as well as all the past doctors which were aimed at a more adult readership which were unceremoniously dropped when the new show came out - it was like a slap in the face to all the people who had helped keep the show alive in the hiatus. Well if this book is anything to go by then that may have begun to be redressed.
Although Amy & Rory have their parts to play in this book the doctor comes to the fore and has a nice exchange with the Ice Warriors, where some of their history is explored and the Doctor's faux-pas in getting his time eras wrong certainly brought a smile to my face.
Although I find the characters of Amy & Rory on TV quite irritating they are (thankfully) underplayed in this book and therefore for me, more believable. I think therefore this book should appeal to new and long-time enthusiasts alike as a wonderful consolidation of old & new.
I like also that the cover has a timeless quality about it by not having images of the current doctor & companions which also reflects the latter policy of the books in the '90s, to allow the book to retain it's appeal once the actors decide to move on... indeed it appears that in the TV Xmas special Matt Smith will be going solo - Hurrah! It's been sometime coming but it appears Matt Smith has become a 'proper' Doctor! More excellent books like this one can only serve to underline this. Now, can we have an occasional past Doctor book please?

"Standard Catalog of" Comic Books (Standard Catalog of Comic Books)

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Overstreet, 5 July 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent reference work. This is the ultimate guide for collectors of all eras & genres of US comic books in an easy to use guide. It does lack colour photos of covers but it more than makes up for that with the sheer amount of information and useful non-cerebral articles. This is a book for those who actually enjoy collecting and READING their comics - financial value being a pleasant side issue. As I say better than the Overstreet guide because this is much less cerebral & dollar driven. If you love comic books - buy it!
