The TV series that was never made and that you’ve never heard of celebrates its 40th year with an exhaustive retrospective guide! Growing from a child's game, the bizarrely-titled The Magnet... More > Editor ran for ten years and a breathtaking 47 series. In bringing the series to life, Nick Goodman drew from 70s pop culture including Doctor Who and The New Avengers, and shared it only with his bewildered mother and childhood friends.

Goodman and Bunsell open up their archive of materials and memories, and take you on a roller-coaster ride into their world! Magnet Memories is an episode guide, a frank, critical, incredulous and nostalgic reflection, a snapshot of childhood in the 70s and 80s... and it's possibly the most wonderfully bonkers cult TV book ever published!< Less

Avengerworld - The Avengers In Our Lives By Alan Hayes
eBook (ePub): $2.77
The Avengers was a revolutionary series that always playfully twisted perceptions, pushed the boundaries of its genre and defied those who wished to pigeonhole it. The team behind The Avengers never... More > forgot its primary objective was to entertain. And entertain it certainly did, inspiring successive generations to welcome The Avengers into their hearts. Right from its foreword by pioneering television historian Dave Rogers to its afterword by Jason Whiton of SpyVibe, Avengerworld celebrates the series, its international fandom and its fans. Over the course of more than forty essays, Avengers fans the world over relate how they first encountered the series, how they grew up with it at their sides, made friends, engaged with fandom and were inspired to do extraordinary things. Proceeds from this book will be donated to Champion Chanzige, a charity organisation that exists to improve conditions for underprivileged children at a primary school in Southern Tanzania – and helps them to do extraordinary things too.< Less

eBook (ePub): $1.29

A San Francisco room or a portal into another galaxy, an alternative world, or maybe a link to the past or future? The Blind Spot is an imaginative science-fiction concoction from the early 1920s that has become a cult favourite.< Less

It made its mark in TV history not for what it was but for what it led to - the world beating show The Avengers.

Richard McGinlay and Alan Hayes now redress the balance, revealing information about the creation of the series, its production, transmission and narratives – including the mysterious 'Diplomatic Immunity', which never appeared in TV listings – and the circumstances that caused 'Police Surgeon' to be brought to a sudden end after just 13 weeks.< Less
