The Robot Revolution Will Be Novelised

Kaldor City: Hidden Persuaders co-author and longtime Magic Bullet production manager, Fiona Moore's novel, "Driving Ambition", has been acquired by Bundoran Press. From their announcement:

"In the not-too-distant future, intelligent Things are recognized as sentient beings--but do they have the same rights as humans? And what about the free-floating Intelligents deep within the Internet. Thompson Jennings is a man with unique problems and unique abilities--he can interface between the human and machine worlds, acting as a go-between in labour negotiations and other disputes. But when one his clients, a sentient taxicab, is murdered, his problems multiply and his abilities are stretched to the limit."


So: Robots, murders, political intrigue and artificial sentience... what more could Kaldor City fans ask for? The book will be published in autumn 2018, details will be forthcoming.

Scott Fredericks 1943-2017

All of us at Magic Bullet were very sorry to hear of the death of Scott Fredericks, who played Carnell in the Kaldor City series (reprising a role he first performed in Blake's 7). Scott was a good friend and supporter of Magic Bullet for many years, and he will be very much missed. Read the obituary on Irish Equity's webpage here.
