Wiffle Lever to Full!: Daleks, Death Stars and Dreamy-eyed Nostalgia at the Strangest Sci-fi Conventions by Bob Fischer
Hodder & Stoughton Paperback  ISBN/ITEM#: 9780340962015
Date: 24 July 2008 List Price £12.99 Amazon US / Amazon UK /

Bob Fischer takes a look (or is it a poke?) at fandom in this light-hearted and affectionate book. He "...discusses the rules of 'smeg' with Craig Charles, is brought to his knees in Cardiff city centre by Imperial Stormtroopers, joins Douglas Adams devotees heel-bent on destroying Blakes 7 fanatics with water-pistols, and unearths all kinds of hilarious childhood nostalgia". Clearly focussed on the more eccentric areas of fandom, one wonders whether he'd have found the World Fantasy Convention quite so hilarious!
