Looks like only the audiobook is out with the ebook and hardback to follow.

Methinks I shall order the book as I find it easier to read than an Ebook.(Something to do with the varifocals that I wear.) Also, it's a bit difficult to put a bookmark into a ebook, if you get my driftGrin
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I am so glad that Michael Keating has been chosen to read the audio version. Excellent! At last!

I also like that's he's reading a story by Paul Darrow.

I'll be starting the audio book tonight, I have no idea what season or where the stories fit into any timeline (not that that's of major importance to me) - its always a pleasure to hear new Blake's 7 from BF

Based on my Mega-enjoyment of Vila's narration in Liberator Chronicles Vol7 #1 Spy, which I've just finished (See "Liberator Chronicles 7 *Spoilers Thread*"), I'll be buying this.
His dramatic (I mean professional acting) voice is WONDERFUL!!

Three in Season A, one in Season B, two in Season C. Their precise position between episodes is given (apart from Paul Darrow's story, which is in an unspecified part of Season C).

He's a great narrator - I hope BF use him for more of their audio books.

Spent a very lazy morning reading this.

Reminded me of the days of the Blake's 7 Annual ! Smile

The stories are generally very good and each of the regular characters from seasons one to three gets something to do.

Contagion by Trevor Baxendale is the best of them. An Orac story that would work very well as an audio episode.

Dominator by Jonathan L Howard has one of my real bugbears. Referring to the flight deck as the "bridge" throughout. Sad
Otherwise it's a good story with an interesting role for Zen.

I'm not really a fan of Paul Darrow's writing but Rock Star captures the style of the series a lot better than his Lucifer novels.

Gary Russell's story has such an obvious premise that you wonder why no-one has done it before. Travis puts together his own "seven" to go after the Liberator.
Sadly the short story format doesn't really do the idea justice. Although his characterisation of Servalan and Travis is excellent, there isn't sufficient space to make his original characters anything more than cyphers. Barg in particular is a camp stereotype. I can't imagine Travis putting up with anyone calling him "darling" Angry
There is a nice twist in the tale at the end.
It's a shame Gary Russell has saddled the story with such a silly title, pointing out what a hackneyed trope the "Expendables" or "Mission Impossible" team format is.
Also a Travis story doesn't really fit with the theme of "Heroes".

Overall it's a good collection but not a cheap one, given that it only took me a couple of hours to read.
Maybe one to pick up in a sale in future.
