    Thanks, H-Fall! Stick around because I plan on buying the entire series. Speaking of which, I just got in book #12 in the series: Inside UFO 54-40.

    Lou Scheimer: Creating The Filmation Generation which hasn't arrived yet and it's been out nearly a month. Any other Australians order this and haven't got their copy yet or is it just me? E-mailing the publishing company which I ordered from to see what's the hold up. Can't blame the hurricane as the company is based in North Carolina which wasn't in the storms path as far as I know.

It was a very warm, engaging & charismatic children's series, nothing more
    Bear in mind that the writers that worked on this show were writing stories THEY wanted to tell - They weren't dumbing down for kids ("Into the Abyss", "The Problem With Power", etc., are prime examples of writing for a much older audience) - I don't think anyone is treating the show as a a piece of classic literature for grown-ups; least of all me...

    And you mentioned that I gave low scores to your favorites - Well, all I did was rate my favorites since I wrote a book and all...

    These are pretty cool! I still have a bunch of these CYOA books including Space Patrol. My favourites for some reason were: Who killed Harlowe Thrombey and Sabotage. Though the one that i found hardest was the first one; Cave of Time.

    My latest book purchase was the massive Lord of the Rings book. I don't how long it'll take to read but it's worth it LoL.

    Haven't checked my mailbox for a few days so it might have turned up if redsquadron's response is anything to go by.

    Cool, Robotnik! I still have my childhood copy of Sabotage as well as Prisoner of the Ant People. A couple of great books!

    I got 3 more Choose Your Own Adventure Books in the mail today: The Third Planet From Altair (#7), The Lost Tribe (#23) and Treasure Diver (#32).

    I got 3 more Choose Your Own Adventure Books in: Who Killed Harlowe Thrombey? (#9), Ghost Hunter (#52) and The Trumpet of Terror (#55).









    Plus I got the Garbage Pail Kids book which is basically just reproduction pictures of the first 5 series of Garbage Pail Kids stickers with 4 previously unreleased cards added as a bonus.



    And I got the latest Stephen Sansweet book, Star Wars: The Ultimate Action Figure Collection which details every action figure and its various incarnation. A very detailed book indeed, image-wise.

    I love the new Trek books, I only wish the shows were still on TV so they could adapt all the great stories that have been set after Nemesis
