Covered in WARP!1: Star Trek: The Original Series Star Trek: The Animated Series Star Trek: The Original Series Movies Gene Roddenberry’s 1970s Pilots & Movie Projects The Lieutenant (the first TV series created by Roddenberry, which brought him into contact with such actors as Leonard Nimoy, Gary Lockwood, Nichelle Nichols, and Walter Koenig) New adventures are in store on Gene Roddenberry’s fabled final frontier, and theLogBook.com founder/head writer Earl Green brings you a guide to Star Trek old and new in the same format as the VWORP! guides to Doctor Who (in fact, the two are compatible and cross-referenced).
An unauthorized celebration of 50 years of Doctor Who. In 1989, Doctor Who was cancelled with little hope of reprieve. In 1996, a one-off Doctor Who TV movie renewed the legend. In 2005 Doctor Who returned to TV triumphantly, and the BBC quickly made plans for several spin-off series. In between, fandom came to the rescue. With fan-produced amateur films and audio stories, the Doctor and friends actually had more adventures while the show was off the air than they could have while it was in production! When Doctor Who returned, it was these fans who were now writing some of his TV adventures. VWORP!2 covers the years that Doctor Who was heard and not seen, via official audio adventures from Big Finish and the BBC. The three successful TV spin-offs to date – Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, and K-9 – are also covered, along with updates on the 2012 and 2013 seasons of Doctor Who.

REVISED, UPDATED, EXPANDED! Now cross-referenced to the 2012-2013 seasons, with additional reviews of recently recovered 1960s episodes, additional photos, and an extensive index! With nearly 50 years of adventures recorded across several media, the BBC’s international smash hit DOCTOR WHO is one of the most deeply explored fictional “universes” in TV or literary history – partly because it intersects with our own in so many places. VWORP!1 is just the beginning of your complete guide to the travels of the TARDIS, pointing out noteworthy original series adventures to fans of the new series, and finding hints of the show’s larger narrative in some of the oddest places.

Fatherhood, Fandom, and Fading Out (ebook)
Teenage fandom and creativity led to a life working in the media. And then that took a back seat to growing up and being Dad. This book collects choice cuts from Earl Green’s long-running blog, Scribblings From The Public Restroom Stalls Of The Gods, and juicy morsels and tidbits from his disturbingly long-running, self-published ‘zine, all contained in one handy volume, waiting…watching…biding its time until it can attack again. (Wait, this sales pitch needs a rethink. When’s the deadline again? …oh.)
