RED DWARF THE BOOKS

Red Dwarf has inspired various books and some of these are classics. Read below to find out what is on offer and a few of my thoughts are thrown in for good measure.

The Red Dwarf book shown here above is an official Red Dwarf book although I never seem to see a reference for it on the net anywhere.

 

Red Dwarf Red Dwarf : Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers     

Rob Grant & Doug Naylor

Well this is where it all starts. Lister gets drunk and the adventure begins on our favourite spaceship Red Dwar. This book follows the first series and the arrival of Kryten. The Audio tape is very good.

Better than life Better Than Life - Red Dwarf   

Rob Grant & Doug Naylor

Stuck in BTL the crew of Red Dwarf have some crazy adventures, can Kryten get them out and what are they going to be like when they do get out. Amazing adventures inside BTL the Audio tape for this one is fantastic.

last human The Last Human - Red Dwarf    

Doug Naylor & Craig Charles

Lister is stuck on a Penal ship is a follow on from the last book. This is really weird in places and doesn't have all the gags you expect. imagine a more serious Red Dwarf series and then this works fine.

Red Dwarf Backwards - Red Dwarf  

Rob Grant

Another answer to BTL and what happens. This time following the Adventures where time goes the wrong way. If you've seen the backwards episode you have the general idea of this book, quite good, more fun than Last Human.

Craig Charles The "Red Dwarf" Primordial soup (Scripts)

Craig Charles The log: the Book - Red Dwarf    

Craig Charles, Russell Bell

A great additional to the other Red Dwarf books. The world according to Lister onboard Red Dwarf. In character he discusses things through the ages. Very funny, well worth getting.

Chole Annett Red Dwarf VIII : The Official Book   

Doug Naylor

With series 8 of Red Dwarf the promo wheels were in motion. This is a very good book and a good combination to the series, shame we don't have one of these for each of the other series.

Robert Llewellyn The Man in the Rubber Mask    

Robert Llewellyn

Take a trip through the Mind and Eyes of Robert Llewellyn and his behind the scenes of Red Dwarf. A very funny and blunt view of what really went on. I burst out loud in laughter reading this one.
