The trailer is finished – and our campaign to crowdfund production of  Issue 1 of our comic book series is now live!  There’s no denying it’s been a long haul – fitting in the creation of a four-minute, part-live action trailer around busy workaday lives has been a constant challenge for everyone on our team, […]

‘Keep writing!’  Sound advice from creative industry ‘old-timers’ (by that, I don’t mean those authors are older than me, but that they’ve been writing long enough to know how it all works – and sometimes, why it doesn’t).

It’s often difficult to ask people for money – but when the reward is something this special – to be part of a science-fiction show from the very beginning- then it feels less like begging and more ‘hey, how would you like to be a part of something really special?’  So, with that in mind, […]

If someone had told my fifteen-year-old self that I would one day create an appreciation society for a favourite science-fiction show (a club which is still going strong thirty-four years later) or that I would be invited to visit the set, go to sci-fi conventions and meet authors, directors and actors, write a novel, and have the opportunity […]
