Southside Meeting: Red Dwarf: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers by Grant Naylor

****The location of this Southside meetup will be Caph's Cafe Bar and Restaurant in Manuka.  We will be testing out a few different southside venues, and this will be the first. Suggestions will be accepted for other future southside meetings****

Ok, this book was selected by the new member selection option in the book list (see previous messages which should be on the message board). Which means this book was selected by a member! (who will remain nameless unless he/she decides to emerge from the shadows - be nice everyone) ;-)

I am sure a lot of you have heard of the TV series associated with this book. This is the first in a trilogy. A general overview is:

When Lister got drunk, he really got drunk!

After celebrating his birthday with a Monopoly-board pub crawl around London, he came to in a burger bar on one of Saturns moons, wearing a lady's pink crimplene hat and a pair of yellow fishing waders, with no money and a passport in the name of "Emily Berkenstein".

Joining the Space Corps seemed a good idea. Red Dwarf, a clapped out spaceship, was bound for Earth. It never made it, leaving Lister as the last remaining member of the human race, three million light years from Earth, with only a dead man, a senile computer, and a highly evolved cat for company.

They begin their journey home. On the way, they'll break the light barrier. They'll meet Einstein, Archimedes, God, and Norman Wisdom...and discover an alternative plane of reality.


Hope to see you all there

    I have booked a table at Caphs, under the name "Brett", for 6 people. I will be travelling from Newcastle that day so my apologies if I am late but I will endeavour to do everything I can to be there on time.
