There are three rules associated with the Mogwai and its variants often called gremlins, no doubt discovered by accident with its discovery although no one […]

Lasers, Death Rays And The Long, Strange Quest For The Ultimate Weapon by Jeff Hecht (book review).

Lasers, Death Rays And The Long, Strange Quest For The Ultimate Weapon by Jeff Hecht (book review).

Jeff Hecht’s book, ‘Lasers, Death Rays And The Long, Strange Quest For The Ultimate Weapon’ should draw your immediate attention.

You might have noticed that over the years. It’s also rather useful as a Science Fiction writer because even when I play with scientific rules, I still apply […]

The Glass God (Magicals Anonymous book 2) by Kate Griffin (book review).

This book is a humorous urban fantasy, volume 2 in the ‘Magicals Anonymous’ series, which is itself a spin-off of the four-volume ‘Matthew Swift’ series. Swift, the Midnight Mayor, comes into ‘The Glass God’ and its predecessor, ‘Stray Souls’ as a minor or perhaps it’s more accurate to say a major but mainly off-stage character. […]

Superheroines And The Epic Journey by Valerie Estelle Frankel (book review)

With a title like ‘Superheroines And The Epic Journey’, I did wonder if author Valerie Estelle Frankel was going the Joseph Campbell route and indeed she does.
