To infinity and beyond

Display

To all those who got excited about our post a couple of weeks ago on retrospective displays at Central, a big thanks, and wow!  You guys are a little scary in your fandom.  You will be pleased to know that we now have a table full of sci-fi goodies just waiting to be browsed over and borrowed.  Next on the menu is Adventure – we’ll be digging up armfuls of McLean, le Carre, Wilbur Smith and assorted other stories featuring rugged middle-aged soldiers/scientists/archaeologists marooned in the desert/Arctic/South American jungle, who find mysterious artifacts/enemy spies/deadly germs, and who save the world with the help of exotic young and beautiful Russian professors of linguistics.  Oh, and a gun.

Once again, please overwhelm us with suggestions of authors and titles, and we will do our best to track them down for you!

    Fantastic, cheesy adventure stories!

    How about H R Haggard’s King Solomon’s Mines; Willard Price; Nevil Shute; Colin Forbes; Victor Channing …

    Would Jaws count? scary adventure …

    Gasp!
    Wilbur Smith and le Carre casually flung together in one callous phrase. And adding insult to injury – cheesy adventure stories…mortally offended.
    All will be forgiven if you manage to dig up some of the older, more obscure le Carre treats?
