    Font/typeface design

    I need someone to design a font for me, based on a brief that I've already got prepped. I then need the font to be turned into a typeface, that I can... type, with. First question - does anyone know how much this kind of thing should cost me to commission? I have a rough idea how much someone was going to charge me to design it, but the tech stuff, the turning it into a typeface bit - I have no idea. Second question - anyone in here do this type of thing?

    Christopher Hitchens

    Gah, how embarrassing. That'll be the Hitchin train I get every day seeping in to my stupid brain. Thanks for the tips.
  7. I want to read something by him, but I don't know where to start. Any suggestions?

    South Park

    On the latest Richard Herring podcast he interviews Robert Popper, who worked on a couple of South Park episodes a while back. He talks about the experience of writing it (or not, as it turns out), I thought it was really interesting.

    Finished it today. Just didn't do it for me. But then, I have always struggled a little with cyberpunk, if I'm honest. I'll still give her short stories a go. Probably should have started there really, always sensible with a new author.

    Anybody read Synners by Pat Cadigan? First book in a long time that I've really struggled with, to the point where I considered dropping it a couple of times (something I never do). I'm 50 pages from the end now and it's picked up, slightly, but overall I haven't really been able to follow what's been happening. A 450-page book that feels like it could be condensed down to half that. It's a sf masterwork, and it won the Clarke Award in 1992. I'm baffled. Maybe it just wasn't for me.

    I read The Book of Strange New Things, loved it. Was disappointed (though not surprised) that it didn't fair better at the Clarke Award recently. Although having said that, the fact that it was nominated was quite an achievement in itself. Also, if you haven't read Under the Skin I can't recommend it highly enough. Very different to the film, but equally as mesmerizing.

    Mad Max - Fury Road

    Bloody hell that was good. London folk, you might like - I run a sf film club and at the end of April/start of May I'm screening the original Mad Max trilogy over three weeks, at three venues, and each event is free. Details over on the site - Science Fiction Theatre. Come along, get excited for Fury Road with me.
  13. Very well said Gorf, amazing stuff. Brought a tear to my eye. Stumbled across this earlier today, all great points: http://whatculture.com/film/10-reasons-alien-3-is-a-misunderstood-masterpiece.php

    Been meaning to post this for a while.. Chap called Peter Young has dedicated issues #3 and #4 of his Big Sky e-fanzine to the SF Masterworks range. He's collected together at least two reviews for every single title released so far. It's an epic effort, and I'm thoroughly enjoying going through it all. Be warned, many of the reviews contain spoilers, but it's a wonderful resource nonetheless. http://efanzines.com/bigsky/
