Oooo, that would be so cool (no pun intended  tongue.gif  wink.gif ) to read! I know that there are also several Stargate novels, and I've seen novels for The X-Files and 24, too. I wish they had more MacGyver ones, though. I guess that's why there's always room for fanfic though, right?  wink.gif


There's MacGyver books?! For real? Where! w00t.gif

( I mean I know fan-fic but something like you could display on a bookshelf. )

There are also novels based on all three CSI shows. The more recent CSI:Miami novels are much better than the first ones; I think the new author actually watched the show more than once, and so has a better feel for the characters' personalities and quirks.

I suppose some TV-show based novels are better than others. The "MacGyver on Ice" is really great though. Some of my other favorites are any of the Star Trek books (though Star Trek: The Next Generation is my favorite series), Quantum Leap and Saved By the Bell. There are really good book series for all of these shows and I think the authors did a really great job of capturing the essence of the shows in each case.
Too bad there wasn't more for MacGyver. An ongoing book series would have been really great. Considering all the other series in the 1980s that made it (see examples below), I'm surprised MacGyver didn't get a comic book series or video game either. That would have been really cool!


("The A-Team" had both a 3 issue comic series from Marvel and an Atari 2600 video game, at least in prototype form, "Knight Rider" had a Nintendo Entertainment System video game, and more recently 2 PC games that have been released in the last few years. "Airwolf" also got a NES game. Even "Miami Vice" had a PC game! Even short-lived shows like "Automan" and "Street Hawk" got video games for Commodore 64 and Spectrum, respectively! And even shorter-lived show "Manimal" had a UK annual, which featured short stories and comics!)

Glad I got all that fanboy knowledge off my head! biggrin.gif
At least MacGyver did get an official action figure and tons of accessories, thanks to Glasslite! wink.gif

Aaaarrrgh...e-bay bidding on this book out of my price range now. dry.gif

Kinda curious this author only made one. At the height of the show's run in the 80's, I would imagine it would have sold well. Who knows.

How did this author publish this book without copyright infringement? I didn't see anything on e-bay that indicated it was authorized by Paramount, but maybe I missed it.

I've got a copy of "MacGyver on Ice" and though it was published only in Britain apparently, it is definitely authorized by Paramount. And it is an original novel, not just a novelization of an episode. Too bad this was not continued in a series of original novels, but oh well. It's nice to find this one book- if you can ever track it down on Ebay or used book stores.

Why do these people sell their MacGyver-books all of a sudden? I don't understand it.

But I'm glad they do so that people like me that didn't even know MacGyver existed when the book was published still can get it after all this time!

Okay Dag-Nabbit!

I'm starting a list...it's a list for MacGyver to whisper into the ear of the person next on the list about an Ebay listing. Instead of announcing it to the world!! laugh.gif

Sorry guys- I just didn't want anyone to miss out on a chance at getting it...but anyway, I've seen a couple of copies of "MacGyver on Ice" pop up on Ebay in the last few months...so from here on out, I'm just gonna say- keep your eyes on Ebay- you never know what might pop up!

(And don't forget other avenues too- online used book sellers might have it... wink.gif )

Well I'm actually the freak who's bidding the 51 AUD on it. biggrin.gif I've seen this book on eBay a couple of times and every time I've seen it I've not had any money to buy it so I'm not letting it go this time.


EDIT: Weird... This seems to be my first post in there. I thought I'd posted something before, but I guess not. Hi everybody!

Hey Teemu!!

You're not a freak! If I had the money for it I'd probably bid on it too! Maybe you can sell it to one of us after you're finished. LOL!

Btw, welcome here!!

Wow!!! I wish that I had that kind of dough. It killed me to bid almost $20 USD and know that I would have to pay almost $10 in shipping to get that book. But, alas, outbid AGAIN!!!!! Maybe one day..... sad.gif

Well I still have to wait 19 hours and 33 minutes to see if I win. I don't usually have so much money but it was my birthday recently (on the 16th) and my dad gave me some money in advance as a present.

Hey, that's what birthdays are for! You should buy something nice for yourself. biggrin.gif

By the way, I love Finland. When Conan O'Brian went there last year and spoke with your president I thought "I have to go there". Your president is Tarja Hallonen right?

Finland is indeed a magnificent country. Maybe I'll come and pick up the book myself after you've finished reading it. LOL.

I'm going to a second hand bookstore later this afternoon, see if I can find it there...
