5.0 out of 5 stars At the core of Known Space..., 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... are the Beowulf Shaeffer stories, and they're all here. As a long time Larry Niven fan, the title of this book told me all I needed to know; this is a collection of some of his finest short stories, starting with perhaps the greatest of them all, "Neutron Star." As far as I know, the last standalone story, "Procrustes," is only published here in book form, and that and the connecting narrative make this an essential read for any fan of Larry Niven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rory at his greatest, 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It'll take me a while to get through the whole of this collection, but the whole thing would be worth it for the first concert alone. No Rory Gallagher fan should even consider being without it; this is the way I remember him, blasting out the blues on stage like it was the greatest fun anyone could possibly have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why would anyone want anything else?, 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose the ultimate test of a product is: would you buy another one? Since I'm now on my fourth, clearly yes. This is a plain, straightforward watch that does everything I want very well, and nothing more. It's simple and elegant, and I wouldn't feel the same without one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A neat little kit, 4 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Airfix reboxing of a JB Models kit is a good representation of a historically important but neglected tank. Most British tanks in 1939-40 were MkVIA, B or C models, and this kit has parts and transfers to build any one of the three. I haven't run a ruler over it but it looks accurate, detail is good enough for such a small scale, and everything fits nicely. The instructions aren't too clear, and some of the parts are fiddly - the headlamp in particular seems designed to ping out of the tweezers and vanish into the carpet - so it's not really a beginner's kit, but there's nothing about it to trouble a modeller with a bit of experience. Mould quality is good, though there's a tricky seam on the tracks, and transfers are clear and well registered. Overall, a very nice kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun for a Warhammer novice, 12 Jan 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought this game for my 11 year old son, who's just starting to get into Warhammer 40K. He's very happy with it and has a lot of fun playing it, both solo and multiplayer with a friend who's at a similar level. I suspect it'll get less interesting as he gets more involved in the tabletop game, but as an introduction for a novice it's a good game.
