1984April 29, 2009
Another contact (see Tonight Matthew I’m going to be…) made through my flickr cctv photostream, was with the people who put together the Journey Planet fanzine. Issue 3 which you can download here as a pdf, is a George Orwell 1984 special, and features some of my photos – but there’s plenty of good things too, such as:
L.J. HURST: ‘George Orwell in the World of Science Fiction’ ALAN MOORE, CHRIS BRASTED & SMS: ‘Captain Airstrip One, CHRISTIAN PAYNE & JOHN PERIVOLARIS, ‘Talking George Orwell with Blair at Our Feet’ EMMA J. KING, ‘Mathspeak’ ANDREW F. WOOD, ‘Secure Beneath the Watchful Eyes’ JAMES BACON, ‘Orwellian London’ TONY KEEN, ‘”If There Is Hope…” CHRISTOPHER J. GARCIA, ‘1984: The Year That Defined the Future PÁDRAIG Ó MÉALÓID, ‘Some Notes on the Similarities between ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier’ and ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four” JAMES BACON, ”Nineteen Eighty-Four’ for Sixpence: The Penguin Cover Story’.
Talking of CHRISTIAN PAYNE & JOHN PERIVOLARIS, ‘Talking George Orwell with Blair at Our Feet’ (pay attention it’s one of the articles in the fanzine) you can listen to the podcast of their discussion made whilst sat round George Orwell’s grave here.
