Book Club Book : Survivors

This month’s Edinburgh SF Book Club book is “Survivors” by Terry Nation. I’m not sure whether he wrote this before the 1970’s TV series or whether it’s just a novelisation; either way, I’m looking forward to reading this as his Blake’s 7 is quite probably my favourite TV show of all time.

I never watched the original TV show but I did follow the recent remake on BBC HD. I though this had a couple of excellent episodes and was building up into a cracking story, but then it suddenly ended on an almighty cliffhanged after only 6 episodes. Hopefully the book will have a proper ending…
