The Avatar Issue 3

March 19, 2011

The Spring 2011 Issue of The Avatar will be available at the next meeting!

Issue 3 of our print Fanzine has regular features such as Geek Girl and an Interview with one of our members. We’ve also got 3 brand new short stories; A tale of a perfect little world from Daniel Ribot, the adventures of a visiting alien from Douglas Rudman and our featured story from David L. Smith, an apocalyptic story about a man trapped in a nuclear bunker.

David also comprehensively reviews one of the worst films ever made, Battlefield Earth and asks the question, is it really as bad as he remembers? Andrew Clarke’s series on the Movies of Horror Director John Carpenter reaches its conclusion with a review of his two best movies!

And not forgetting Chris Burnham’s guide to buying Budget Comics (can you really buy 6 great comics for £2.50?)

All this, plus my own guide to the Remastered Star Trek and what it teaches us about the current state of CGI. All this for £1!

So pick up your copy at one of our meetings. We’re also hoping to bring you PDF versions of Issue 1 and 2 of The Avatar, so watch this space.

Issue 4 will be out in October 2011 and we’re totally out of submissions at the moment so please send them in! Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer, we’d love to have your feedback, it might even make it to our first ever Letters Page (there’s a prize.) It’s great to have so much wonderful stuff in our Fanzine, but we want to know what our readers think of it, good or bad. Tell us what you’d like to see or maybe just give our authors some encouragement to keep doing what they’re doing.
