Bob Fischer will be talking about his new book and signing copies of Wiffle Lever To Full at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR on Wednesday 23rd July 2008 6-7pm.
Wiffle Lever To Full is Bob Fischerís story of going on a marathon 12-month journey around the countryís sci-fi and cult TV conventions. Along the way he encountered gay Cybermen, obsessive Janet Ellis fans and Douglas Adams devotees armed with waterpistols. This is part travelogue and part misty-eyed childhood memoir.
He makes his way from Doctor Who to Discworld, Star Wars to Star Trek and Robin Of Sherwood to Red Dwarf.
Bob Fischer is a lifelong science fiction and fantasy fan and is also a radio presenter for BBC Tees. He has won a Bronze Sony Radio Award, and sung on a UK Top 10 hit single (Bunsen Burner by John Otway, No9 In October 2002. You must remember it!). He lives near Middlesbrough with his girlfriend and their dog.
