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

This was a public information article. Thanks for reading.
The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
