The Expanse series 6 will be the last: cancels before end of the books (TV news).

The Expanse series 6 will be the last: cancels before end of the books (TV news).

Bad news – the sci-fi TV series The Expanse will get its 6th season – but this will be the last from Amazon, so – unless they find some way to shoe-horn in loads of books into a single TV series, which would create its own problems – it’ll finish well before the wrap-up of events […]

Silence Fallen (Mercy Thompson book 10) by Patricia Briggs (book review).

There seem to be two approaches to contemporary urban fantasy. Often there is the need for secrecy, not allowing the mundane human population to become aware of the fact that dangerous supernatural beings live amongst them. The reasons given are prejudice and fear. Proponents of this approach are authors such as Jim Butcher in his […]

In this toon, Stan brings his […]

Back Issue #70 February 2014 (magazine review).

Contrary to the look of the cover of Back Issue # 70, the focus isn’t on Wolverine but the Incredible Hulk, focusing primarily on his own title from the 1970s and the longevity of Herb Trimpe and Sal Buscema runs on the title as Jarrod Buttery relates ol’ greenskin’s history. I’m glad the page from […]
