One for john_callaghan: The Travellers

Had a good night in London yesterday with andre_powell, kentonuk, laniel, john_callaghan, kowt, meryc and royan, the occasion being the celebration of royan and redshira's impending nuptials. Food at Papageno's near Covent Garden was slightly uninspired pan-Ottoman fare; I've had better Greek/Turkish food elsewhere, and the service left something to be desired, as did the 12.5% service charge automatically added to the bill. Looking at customer reviews here, it seems that I'm not alone. That said, this didn't dampen our spirits; I certainly think that we'd have been hard-pushed to find anything better in central London on a Saturday night at short notice.

Anyway, to carry on from a conversation with JC - Mark Harrison's (not that one) collected Travellers strips from the pages of White Dwarf are available here. They're not complete, and sadly don't include the suburbia finale that we were talking about, which was the conclusion to the third story ("The Travellers in... Shadows"). However, this third story does appear in the Pirata Publications reprint that I mentioned, though the photocopy reproduction is so lousy that it's hard to make out much of the detail.

Thanks for the link! I had a fine time also. After we left there we went for a drink outside the NFT.

Don't be too hard on Papageno's - the decor is almost worth the price alone and starting a six-piece band next to tables when people are having conversations is conversation-worthy in itself. And remember that it wasn't until we'd sent the bill back that they charged us for the food!

The Predator-style icon is used here because the photo was actually taken in Papageno's.

The six-piece band playing Brazil was very nearly the highpoint of the restaurant for me. I was sorely tempted to request Girl from Ipanema, just to see what it sounded like when arranged for guitars and accordions.
