I love that picture with the waterfal behind the gate. It looks amazing.
Have we ever seen a waterfall like that on the show though?

These books aren't available in Australia. Is it worth me asking Santa(hubby) to get them for me for Christmas. If so I'll have to buy them through the net. I'll also have to allow time for postage. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

The books are deffo worth the money. I have been very impressed with the content of the books over the last three I have obtained.

The Forward by a member of the crew are very funny and insightful, we then have a few pages on how Stargate is going and how the ratings have made it be reneweled again and again.

We then get onto the episodes - two pages for each with a brief snyopsis and then the cast comment on filming and how the story came about etc - very insightful.

The Character guides are also very good as are the extras at the back about costuming, locations, SFX and fans etc.

It is worth collecting as some day in the future they will be worth something - so deffo get Santa to get you them ;)

Whoo hoo, I finally found an Australian book store that sells them and I can get all 4 books for $AUD30 each. Santa's going to have a heavy sack this year what with the 4 books and the board game I bought for myself the other day. I'm going to have a very Stargate Christmas. Can't wait.

Just got this in an email from Amazon UK


We wanted to let you know that the following title, "Stargate SG-1: The Illustrated Companion: Seasons 7 and 8" previously listed
as not yet published, has now been published. Unfortunately, the title
is not available from our suppliers at present, which means it could take
4-6 weeks to arrive in our distribution centre.

That's for the U.K though, possibly the book will be available in the States sooner? :)

Looks like a happy Christmas in store ^^

Just been on Amazon.co.uk and noticed the cover has changed!

Been looking high and low for this near me, and I've waited two weeks for Play.com to post it as they are out of stock again, this rate I may cancel the order and order from Amazon themselves.
