Knight, E. E.Dragon AvengerThe (literal) sister novel to Dragon Champion. - submitted by karne
Knight, E. E.Dragon ChampionYeah so I'm biased, but I'm of the opinion this (and its sequal) were some of the best fantasy novels I've read all year. The author's a highly skilled world builder and clearly roleplays a lot - the characters are well constructed and detailed and I love the dark sense of humour. - submitted by karne

laputa castle in the skyrecommended by mitul
- We do actually have this on a rather battered old copied video. I'd be reasonably i favour of getting a proper version but getting ti new may prove expensive -karne
- Seconded... though the old video copy is very watchable. It should be aired more often... -orpheo
- Note: Found out some stuff. This being released on video and DVD in October by Disney. However Disney have re-dubbed and re-scored it. The new dub is *ghastly*. -orpheo - submitted by random

Ringu 2(lib request)
- one for anime soc imho -karne
- imo this falls directly within our remit, being horror, and not anime. (plus it's fantastic) -tomsk - submitted by dormouse
Abres los ojos(lib request)
- not convinced this is SF in any shape or form... -karne
- it is sf. it about cryogenics and vr i would say thats sf. -bob
- thanks bob. will keep an eye out for it (although it seems hard to find) -dormouse - submitted by dormouse
SeaQuest DSVSeries 1 & 2 were good. Also has a silly number of other-sf-series guest stars :) Not so impressed by series 3. - submitted by dormouse
Dangerman'prequel' to The Prisoner. James Bond-like series with Patrick McGoohan - surprisingly these are top-quality stories even now. The first series (39 half-hour eps) isn't so good, half an hour isn't long enough for a proper story, so wouldn't bother with that unless it's cheap. The later series are great though (45min/hr eps)
- called "Secret Agent" in US -dormouse - submitted by dormouse
Ginger Snaps UnleashedI am told that this is good. And it has been suggested that we might want to get the original on DVD too. - submitted by clanger

Miller, FrankSin Citylibrary copy is all fallen apart. Film coming out of this soon. - submitted by dormouse hunted by lem08
PriestQuantum and Woody (any of the series)The best thing acclain ever published and it got cancelled. Theres no justice. Superhero story, if the superheros were best friends, who couldnt stand each other. Doesnt let you take it a bit seriously. Oh and theres a goat.
- goat?!? -karne
- Can someone tell me if these are any good? Seriously any good? Graphic novels are expensive.. -karne
- Well, I liked them enough to pay for them - I have the first two paperbacks if you want to read them, to make your own judgement. They are all out of print now (4 in total), which makes them harder to come by, but I'll be going off to a comic market next weekend (4th May), at which point I can look for things like this. -JohnCKirk - submitted by alia
