This is now on sale https://www.lulu.com/shop/carol-ramsa...pageSize=4

The adventures of a random assembly of thieves, killers, mercenaries and psychopaths are all fugitives in space, their frail alliance fortified by the knowledge that each one of them has been marked down for extermination by the Federation. But who are these men and women who are prepared to fight to the death for their freedom?

Apparently the code SNEAKPEEK20 will get you a 20% discount. This offer runs until 4th November.

This is the biggest discount of the year so if you've been hesitating - now's the time to buy this or the B7 1982 Annual or anything else published via LULU.

I hope the ‘Thieves, Killers, Mercenaries, Psychopaths’ book raised a nice amount for the charity. (can we get an update here please? for those who do not Twitter, Facebook etc.)
And I hope you enjoyed the B7.
I couldn't buy a copy myself so I can't write an opinion on it, only that publishing my story (Alloy) is a mistake on my part because it is actually a comic strip script.
I made it into a semi-comic (= text with accompanying image fragments from the comic strip) for this edition.
Understandably, there was no room for the semi-comic in this edition.
The story will therefore not be done justice. Fragments are missing now.
However, I did get a suggestion from one of the fans to publish it in future as a complete comic strip.
Below I post some of the 27 drawings that were to go with the Alloy story in semi-comic format. Just to give you an idea of the “feel” of the story.
I'd love to hear comments!

Those are marvelous illustrations, Lurena! That’s how I’d like to able to draw someday. For now, it’s back to anatomy studies…
I have never understood why it should be necessary to become irrational to prove that you care, or indeed why it should be necessary to prove it at all.

I'd rather go for a charity book publication for future Blakes 7 conventions, wouldn't that be a better idea?
