Editorial – Jan 2022:  How much evidence is evidence?

Editorial – Jan 2022: How much evidence is evidence?

Hello everyone Another year. Another covid variant. Sounds like a repeat of last year although probably no better than we have had before. Worse actually, with many governments still slow on the uptake when there is a need to lockdown, putting commerce before possible fatal consequences. How can I write an editorial on anything else […]

Skinwalkers At The Pentagon by James T. Lacatski, Colm A. Kelleher, and George Knapp (book review).

Skinwalkers At The Pentagon by James T. Lacatski, Colm A. Kelleher, and George Knapp (book review).

The title of James T. Lacatski, Colm A. Kelleher and George Knapp’s book, ‘Skinwalkers At The Pentagon’, is a bit of a misnomer.

The Who Adventures: The Art And History Of Virgin Publishing’s Doctor Who Fiction by David J Howe (book review).

The Who Adventures: The Art And History Of Virgin Publishing’s Doctor Who Fiction by David J Howe (book review).

This elegantly large, designed to be displayed on your TARDIS coffee table, hardback is reminiscent of the children’s annual we all coveted in the 1970s. It’s a design choice presumably because ‘The Who Adventures’ would be too thick as a smaller format and the art work benefits from this larger format, too. This book acknowledges […]
