doctorwhotime lordDoctor Who: How to be a Time Lord

Ever wondered what it takes to be a Time Lord?
This ancient Time Lord manual has been kicking around the TARDIS for thousands of years, giving the Doctor plenty of time to 'improve' it with scribbles, doodles and post-it notes as a gift for his successor, the Twelfth Doctor. He's even ripped out the middle of the book and replaced it with a scrapbook packed with everything important to our hero, and how to be just like him!

Doctor Who: The Secret Lives of Monsters

monstersBased on exclusive access to classified government files, The Secret Lives of Monsters collects evidence that has been suppressed for centuries – notes from clandestine meetings, reports of eyewitness accounts, never-before-seen images and documents, secrets provided by a mysterious agent known only as ‘the Doctor', and more. It reveals all we know about aliens who are already here, and provides essential information to survive future invasions.

The Secret Lives of Monsters will give you what the Doctor knows to be the greatest weapon of all: knowledge.

Doctor Who Character Encyclopedia - Special price $14.99!

A compilation of information on every incarnation of the Doctor, as well as each of his resourceful companions and most feared enemies. A must for the discerning Doctor Who Fan.

Our Supanova stall will have limited stock, so don't miss out on these amazing Doctor Who deals!

The Ice Dragon Cometh!

Fans of George R R Martin stand up and rejoice! A new book is coming in December!

Okay, so it's not the next installment of Game of Thrones- but it is set in the same world (and personally I'm dying to read it!)- even better, it's ILLUSTRATED. Which makes it a perfect gift (and Christmas is looming!).

In the world of A Song of Ice and Fire the ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember.

Adara could not remember the first time she had seen the ice dragon. It seemed that it had always been in her life, glimpsed from afar as she played in the frigid snow long after the other children had fled the cold. In her fourth year she touched it, and in her fifth year she rode upon its broad, chilled back for the first time. Then, in her seventh year, on a calm summer day, fiery dragons from the North swooped down upon the peaceful farm that was Adara's home. And only a winter child-and the ice dragon who loved her-could save her world from utter destruction.

 Plus there will be limited copies availble at our Supanova stall (amongst all the other awesome stuff)- so pop on by and check it out!

We’re at SUPANOVA!

Where my geeks at? Specifically my South East Queensland geeks! I know you're heading to Supanova Brisbane this weekend, and I want you to stop by QBD's first-ever Supanova stall!

For the uninitiated and those with a short attention span, here is a one-sentence description of Supanova:

Supanova Pop Culture Expo is where the adoring public comes face to face with Supa-Star celebrities and the creative talent that inspire their imaginary worlds under one big roof.” - from www.supanova.com.au

Basically, we all unabashedly get our geek on, checking out  exhibitions, art, games and events gathered from the wonderful worlds of science-fiction, pulp TV/movies, toys, console gaming, trading cards, animation/cartoons, fantasy, comic books, entertainment technology, internet sites, fan-clubs, and (my personal favourite) books! And for the first time ever, QBD will be attending, and we'll have a huge range of geeky deals on offer!

As You Wish- Cary Elwes

9781476764023I don't remember a time when I couldn't quote The Princess Bride. It's one of those fantastic movies that never seems to get old, even though it came into the world only three months after I did.
This book is the perfect celebration of this movie. Written by the Dread Pirate Roberts himself, this book is funny, warm, and memorable, just like the film itself. Filled with hilarious anecdotes (like the time when Andre the Giant realised he was strong enough to lift a small car, and decided to use this power to move his friends' cars while they weren't looking into tiny, impossible places), As You Wish is a book that will keep a smile on your face long after you've turned the last page.
Throughout the memoir, Cary has scattered reminiscences from cast and crew, which really highlight what a wonderful project this must have been to work on.

As You Wish is a perfect Christmas present for any Princess Bride fan. And don't forget the book that started the whole phenomenon, The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

The Book With No Pictures

9780803741713BLOORF!

I bet you just read that out loud. And then giggled- or smiled at least.

You might think a book with no pictures seems boring (yawn) . Except . . . when it's written by B.J. Novak!

Highly entertaining and full of wit, this book will have children giggling all the way through...even though it definitely does NOT have pictures. They will even beg you to read it over and over again!

But don't just take my word for it- check out the reactions of the kids in the below video.
(P.S. Get ready for cuteness!)
