    Writer and broadcaster Jane Killick has released a book titled "An Unofficial Behind The scenes Guide To The First Series Of Red Dwarf". I don't know much about it, but it may prove interesting.

    I actually knew nothing about her or her Red Dwarf connection but the Ellybooks website states-

    Interesting. First time I've heard of it and first time I've heard of her. It's available on Amazon but only in Kindle form.

    Also, the rocket on the cover is, bizarrely, taken from the Tintin books.

    I noticed a distinct lack of Red Dwarf specific icons on the cover. My guess is that GNP haven't endorsed this! :-D

    Wrong side of the thin line between genius and ins
    I would have thought that the 'unofficial' in the title was a clue to that too.

    Looks awful, basically just a reprint of old articles from smegazine etc.

    Yes, this doesn't look particularly amazing from what I can see. Although it's occasionally recommended to be tactful about such things.

    I've read it. It's a decent read if you're a big series 1 fan like me and can get it cheap, since it's a very small book. As mentioned, most if not all of the material has already been published in the Smegazines.

    Jane expanded this book recently to cover the entirety of the show's history. We reviewed it on Gazpacho Soup here.
