Blake's Heaven...
clanger68
I was lucky enough to have a piece accepted, I was rather chuffed at that.

I have read the first few contributions and I'm loving them, so many parallels to my own experiences and so many situations I can identify with.

If the rest of the book is more of the same I can highly recommend it to any Blake's 7 fan.

Looks like the book is unavailable at the moment. Hopefully, there will be a reprint.

Ah, the You and Who Facebook page says that there is a slight production glitch and the book will be available again in a few days. Smile

Also, looking at Watching Books Facebook page it appears that Blake's Heaven will be available as an kindle eBook at the end of May (ish) Smile

It's available on Amazon.
Vila: Where are all the good guys?
Blake: You could be looking at them.
Avon: What a depressing thought!

I got my copy today and started reading (not in chronological order but starting with the authors I know pesonally). It's a wonderful read, although I feel a bit sad sometimes - o for having been there at the right time and place! But better late than never. I'm glad to be here now.

There's been talk of a second volume, Hugbot, so you may have your chance to contribute then.

Oh, I didn't mean in the right place and time to contribute to this volume, but to participate in the early fandom. (But contributing to another volume would also be nice.)
 
Ellen York
I'm right there with you Hugbot; glad to be here now, but rather wishing I had found this group sooner. As Avon so aptly put it "Regret is part of being alive" Smile

I joined Horizon in 1987, and still feel I missed out on early fandom!

In 1980, maybe the founding members wished they'd got together in 1978?

I first joined in 2007 iirc, on the original online Horizon site.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

The earliest get together I ever attended was Teal Vandor in May 1981.
One very nervous 26 year old absolutely shaking by the time I reached the head of the queue for Mr D's autograph!
I needn't have worried..he was completely charming and nothing like Avon at all!!!
That was my first run in with the B7 crowd and I found everyone so very nice.
Uncle Vere had come along and was very surprised to see the age range, and he showed us the film sequence from Aftermath..the fight between Avon and the stuntman on the beach and we saw the 2 people who didn't get the message about filming that day.
It was too late to reshoot the film as it was only noticed in the editing suite back in London!!!

Loving this book so far. Wish I had known about it earlier as I would have loved to have submitted an article from the perspective of watching the series for the very first time on telly between 78-81. My only gripe is that early articles are mentioning Dr Who far too much, I was always of the opinion that B7 was far better and far more original than that series but I guess the links between the two shows are unavoidable in a book of this nature.

I wanted to have contributed until I read the book. The essays are so original, entertaining and diverse - I would have struggled to match the standard. And they all capture the life changing aspects of the show. It's like peeking into ones own soul and thinking, ' yes that's just how I felt."
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

Buy this book and read the articles.particularly Ian Keiler's. The most moving account of being a fan I have ever read.

I love this line from the great Gary Russell: "It wasn't a poor man's Star Trek, it was actually a rich man's Lost in Space."

I just read your article Travisina, coming back from Blackpool on the coach. Your account of gradually being drawn into the fandom had me in tears!! I have no idea why. Very moving none the less.

Aw, thanks Meegat. I didn't mean to make you cry - sorry about that!

I'm an emotional sort. I cried at Ian Keiller's account too of how B7 helped him through his nan's death and funeral

Actually, I was moved almost to tears by that - and by Mark Oliver's story. It's not just you!
