South Korean Hostage Beheaded

These murderers explained that their killing of Paul Johnson was retribution for the happenings at Abu Ghraib, which most of the anti-American population seemed to swallow. How will they justify the murder of this man? Or maybe they don't have to. Maybe they just keep hacking away (pun intended) at the coalition until they find another Spain willing to back out in order to appease the terrorists.

Me want me want me want!

Dear Stargate SG-1 fan:

It's been a long slog - or as Jack O'Neill would say, a "honkin' pain in the Mikta" - but the first new Stargate SG-1 novel has been published and is currently for sale on our website. We're absolutely delighted with it, and hope you will be too.

Go to www.stargatenovels.com/bookshop.php to order a copy of "Stargate SG-1: Trial by Fire", by Sabine C Bauer.

We're sorry to say that only fans in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa will be able to order the books at this time, due to licensing restrictions. Apologies especially to all the fans in North America who have enquired about the novels. We are looking at ways of bringing the novels to you, and will let you know when we have found an answer.

To celebrate the launch of our first book, we've added a few more resources on the website including a biography of our wonderful author, Sabine. Although it's in the third person (ask your English teacher) it was actually written by her, and it's a wonderful sideways look at a very interesting and diverse career. Click on this link to read it: www.stargatenovels.com/sabine_c_bauer.shtml

There are more books to come. Our publishing programme includes a further three volumes between now and Christmas, with books coming out in August, October and November, with even more planned for 2005. Keep an eye on the website for further information in the following weeks and months.

A note to bookshop owners: Our books are available wholesale from Gardners Books in the UK - www.gardners.com

That's all for now. We hope you enjoy the new book.

Best regards,
Stargate SG-1 novels team

Hmm. Looks like I need to find a Brit or Aussie (preferably one with PayPal) to do my bidding. Any volunteers?

ETA: Linz rocks!

Stick it.

Michael Moore and his distributors lost their appeal Tuesday to lower the R rating for "Fahrenheit 9/11," his scathing assault on President Bush's actions before and after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Lions Gate Films and IFC Films, the movie's distributors, said an appeals board for the Motion Picture Association of America rejected their request to reduce the rating to PG-13.

The R rating prohibits those 17 and younger from seeing "Fahrenheit 9/11" without an adult.

The movie, which won the top honor at last month's Cannes Film Festival, was rated R for "violent and disturbing images and for language." The movie's images include an Iraqi man tossing a dead baby into a truckload of bodies, Iraqis burned by napalm and a public beheading in Saudi Arabia.

Dude, that's so acceptable for 13 year olds to see! The MPAA is so obviously part of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (tm)!
