Coming Soon: Blake's Legacy - 40 Years of Rebellion

Blake’s Legacy - 40 Years of Rebellion
is a brand new anthology of memoirs written by fans of Blake's 7 to celebrate the series' 40th Anniversary. Childhood impressions, life-enhancing encounters with the cast and crew, the joy of meeting fellow fans, and creative activities inspired by the series are all lovingly described.

We have edited the book with love as well; not just for Blake’s 7, but its fandom whose loyalty, ingenuity and humour shine from its pages.

The creators of the series, many sadly no longer with us, receive the gratitude and recognition they deserve in Blake's Legacy for the enjoyment they have given us over the past forty years. Grateful thanks are due to those who have contributed essays. They are a unique record of Blake’s 7 fandom. Pretty special, in other words.

Gareth Thomas supported Alzheimer’s Research UK, and we made the decision that profits from sales of Blake's Legacy will go to this charity. We hope that you will enjoy reading the book whilst supporting this cause.

Looking forward to buying a copy.

Travisina, will it be available to collect on the Friday evening as I’m only going to be able to come to the Josette talk?

Cheers!

I just ordered my copy for pick-up at Cygnus Alpha. I noticed a quirk in the order system. Putting in a US address defaulted the shipping to international. I selected ship to a different address and put in the hotel address just to have something to put in the space and that allowed the pick-up at CA option. I just wanted to let people know in case anyone else is having this issue.

I had the same problem. I notified the editors and they said it was my server! I'll buy a copy at the convention....

I figured they were assuming people from out-of-country wouldn't be at CA. My purchase went through so I assume I will have a copy waiting for me.

I tried how you ordered and it worked the second time. Thanks for the advice.

Just a heads up that the book is only on SALE on Saturday.

Pre orders can be collected Friday.

So if you want Josette to sign your copy....

Books are being shipped to me on Wednesday 26th....so you would need to get your orders in soon.

IT'S OUT TODAY!

Some quotes to whet your appetite:


"Gareth Thomas was late arriving for his talk - the lift had broken down!"

"How does someone become a Blake’s 7 fan in a country where the series never aired?"

"In the lounge area of a small country hotel, I finally got to meet Paul Darrow. I had a little speech prepared..."

"The climbing frame could be the Liberator, but what could we use for those amazing handguns?"

"I was caught in some sort of time loop; forever destined to re-live Series One over and over again..."

"We made our way to to the BBC, waving our Bring Back Blake’s 7 signs..."

"On that fateful evening of 21st December 1981 my school carol concert overran..."



Want to read more? The book can be ordered from Who Dares Publishing, with proceeds going to Alzheimer's Research UK.

Copies will be on sale at Cygnus Alpha on Saturday 29th Sept. Come and meet the Editors!

Just curious. Did you sell many copies/ make a good result for the Alzheimer's Research?

I began to read my copy on my way to Portsmouth (starting with the essays by the people I know personally) .... and I can tell you I was suprised that suddenly Portsmouth station was announced. What should have been a 90 minutes journey turned out to be over in no time. And I can tell you I literally loughed and cried at reading the life stores of my fellow Horizonists.

I ordered mine last Thursday and am just waiting for it to drop through my letter box!
Meanwhile, I am tidying up like a person possessed as a certain Huggy is due to visit on Thursday.
