               FANZINE REVIEW: "BETTER THAN LIFE"
            THE OFFICIAL RED DWARF FAN CLUB MAGAZINE
     (PLUS SOME USEFUL INFOMATION ABOUT THE FAN CLUB ITSELF)
                        by Michael Noyce

 By now most people who read ST NEWS should've realized that  I'm
a bit of a Red Dwarf fan (understatement!).   Recently I took the
plunge  and joined the Official Red Dwarf Fan Club - The  Jupiter
Mining Corporation.  That was several weeks ago and this morning,
July 6th,  my first issue of "Better Than Life" plopped onto  the
doormat  (actually,  it hurtled from the letter box  towards  the
ground at a death defying 9.8m/s).

 "Better  Than  Life"  is  packed with  stuff  about  Red  Dwarf.
Regulars include:  the 'latest' news/rumors, interviews, reviews,
a  rather  large  letters  section  called  Post  Pod,   artwork,
competitions,  contact  address lists  for  groups,  individuals,
clubs  and shops,  various convention details,  and money  saving
special  offers  on merchandise.   There's also some  fiction  on
offer as well as a host of other articles and special features.
 The editorial is well written and a typical Red Dwarf humour  is
evident  throughout the whole magazine,  giving an informal  laid
back feeling to the whole thing.
 The magazine is well put together and informative,  therefore  I
would recommend it as essential reading to any Red Dwarf fan.

 As  a new member of the fan club I also received a rather  flash
credit card sized membership card,   I should've got a badge  but
they'd run out and will send it to me later!

 If  you're  interested  in joining the fan  club  and  receiving
"Better Than Life" then just send a SAE + stamps or International
