Just a very quick plug to let you all know that those lovely people at Classic TV Press, who published my own title Doctor Who: The Pandorica Opens - Exploring the Worlds of the Eleventh Doctor last year, will be promoting their range of titles, including my own book and other publications on Secret Army, Survivors and Being Human, at this weekend's London Film & Comic Con at Earls Court 2.
They will no doubt be talking to visitors about their forthcoming titles, including Standard by Seven, a book about the enduring appeal of Blake's 7 written by David McIntee, television director Michael E Briant's forthcoming memoirs, the recently published revised edition of Joanne Black's book on Being Human which now incorporates her anaylsis of the third series, and their Upstage theatre imprint, about to publish former RSC actress Caroline Blakiston's book Black Bread and Cucumber. Realised from extensive diaries of her time living and working with Russian actors, both before and after the coup of 1991, the book shares her remarkable experiences as the first English actress to play in Chekhov, in Russia, in Russian.
Classic TV Press's 2011/12 catalogue can be downloaded here and if you visit their stand at London Film & Comic Con you'll be able to purchase the currently published titles directly from their stand and buy a signed edition of the Being Human book as Joanne will be in attendance and signing copies. Oh, and of course, it's another opportunity to pick up my book too!
The event is of course filled to the rafters with actors from the worlds of science fiction and fantasy television and film, including Doctor Who, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Babylon 5, Back to the Future, Star Wars and many, many more.
