    we know doug naylot has said in an interview on the main page that he would like to write more novels at some point and rob grant has apparently also shown some interest in writing another RD novel

    I think it's great news. And if he's thinking about Red Dwarf novels again, could that also be a potential return to the TV show (even as a one-off?)

    It's exciting news for me. I don't read novels these days, except for audiobook versions (I recently went through 50 hours of The Lord of the Rings), but I'll certainly read any new Red Dwarf books.

    I know it's an old post now, but would you care to elaborate on this remark? Yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion bla bla bla, but it seems like an odd thing to say for a (presumably) Red Dwarf fan, particularly as a stand-alone comment like this.

    I'm currently devouring the existing ones (again) and would cough up my money at the drop of a hat should any new ones surface, by either Naylor or Grant.

    I like Red Dwarf the tv show (1 - 6) & have no interest in spin off novels. I love Father Ted for instance, but don't want to read novels continuing the characters adventures. . .:roll:

    Mmm, fair enough. I don't see them as spin-offs myself. For me, reading the RD novels is more like watching the film(s) we'll never get.

    The prospect of more Red Dwarf in novel form REALLY excites me. I love the TV show (obviously), but I believe that Red Dwarf in it's finest manifestation is within those novels. 'Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers' is easily up there with 'Hitchhiker's Guide to The Universe'.
