Last night we joined Stephen Ellcock and Mark Haddon at Foyles Charing Cross Road for a wonderful discussion about All Good Things to a sold out crowd of 200.
Congratulations to Marshall Julius on the publication of Vintage Geek. The book was launched in style last night at Picturehouse Central with – what else? – a quiz.
Here is Marshall on the right in photos 1, 3 5 and 6, and our own Hannah MacDonald on the left in the third.
Delighted to be at the launch of the greatest quiz book of all time last night. #VintageGeek by @MarshallJulius is packed full of questions about all the genre junk I love most. Answered three very hard (not) SF questions to win a Spider-Man for the kids too! Go buy the book. pic.twitter.com/ULRF1GBrjf— AndrewDonkin (@AndrewDonkin) October 11, 2019

A sell out discussion at the Edinburgh International Book Festival today for Sharon Blackie, as she talked about her new book Foxfire, Wolfskin.
On Saturday 11 May, Geoff Marshall and Vicki Pipe appeared at the National Railway Museum in York to sign copies of The Railway Adventures. It was a great day, with people queuing for more than two hours to meet them. Thank you Vicki and Geoff, the museum, and especially everyone who came.
Last night saw the launch of Simon Phipps’ beautiful and timely new book Concrete Poetry: Post-War Modernist Public Art at the Barbican.
This stunning collection of photographs and book design by Studio Small is already garnering much praise.
Look out for features in the Guardian and Wallpaper.
A wonderful evening last night at Southwark Cathedral for Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall’s talk about The Railway Adventures. An amazing audience of nearly 250 people heard about the authors’ travels around Britain and played Play Your Railway Cards Right, while in quiet moments the dull thunder of trains from London Bridge made themselves heard.
Congratulations Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall for a sell out event last at the London Transport Museum, talking all things Railway Adventures.
And with some wonderful feedback from Twitter.
Congratulations to Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall, whose book The Railway Adventures: Places, Trains, People and Stations is published today.
In 2017, Vicki and Geoff took a crowdfunded trip to visit all the stations in the UK, and their funny and informative videos of their journey gained a massive fan base on YouTube.
Now, in their book, they help you have your own adventures. Discover the hidden stories that lie behind branch lines, meet the people who fix the engines and put the trains to bed, embark on unknown routes, disembark at unfamiliar stations, explore new places and get to know the communities who keep small stations and remote lines alive.

In Monday’s Metro, you could win one of five copies of The Railway Adventures.
You can see Vicki and Geoff at two London events. On Thursday they will appear at the London Transport Museum, and on Friday 25 October at Southwark Cathedral. Big thanks to Southwark Cathedral, who have given us two tickets for their event to run as a competition giveaway which ends at 1pm today:
