Default The Glen A. Larson/Robert Thurlow 'Novelisation'

First off, I had a poke around but couldn't seem to find a thread dealing with the book or anything else. So if this is in the wrong place...er, do your thing

I found a copy of the novelisation by Glen A. Larson and Robert Thurlow in a local charity shop and shelled out for it. Good nick and all the rest but I wanted to see how Galactica was written even if it was a novelisation. I've only read Hatch's third or fourth BSG book but this was quite good.

Bits that weren't in Saga of a Star World or indeed Boxey being a child that Serina rescues from Caprica, the destruction of the Colonies, the little tidbits like Adama's past with his wife and Adar or even the fact that Galactica-terms like centon, yahren etc were absent.

So there we have it. I somehow felt the need to share

I have it & still need to finish it. What I've read so far is excellent, though.

I also just got this:
http://www.amazon.com/Classic-Battle...449277&sr=1-13

Again, what I've read, I like...

I like to think it's worth the wait. Adama here feels more angrier than Greene played him, even in his revenge setting in "Lost Planet of the Gods". Starbuck's a lot more of a schemer and Apollo angrier...well, stressed.

Still, building your Vipers rocks and I'm inclined to post as a taster the opening chapter of Battlestar Pacifica and then get it done and on the site proper

anyway, get the book

To my surprise if not quiet delight away this week I found a copy of "The Cylon Death Machine", if anything the cover artwork is something and naturally considering how rare these books are to get (here in the UK anyway) I snapped it up. Can only assume it'll be up there with the Saga novelisation/novel.

I've rarely read Galactica and dabble in the writing so I'm sure Cylon Death Machine will be all that and more A bit of alright if you will

Check out this thread i put up in 2009 after I re-read the Saga novelization. It tells of all the strange things that either were in there or not and how they differed from the tv show...
