I’m also inclined to treat them with caution as the quality of self-published books can be very variable. With ‘Points Of Origin’, […]

Revelation Thinking (Editorial – Aug 2021).

Hello everyone, For those of you who thought my comments after the main editorial, you would think that I don’t pick up many revelations myself. A lot depends on how profound they are. The one I picked up from ‘Alternate Worlds: The Illustrated History Of Science Fiction’ by James Gunn came from a quote from […]

Smoke And Mirrors – Special Visual Effects B.C. (Before Computers) by Mark D. Wolf (book review)

This book, ‘Smoke And Mirrors – Special Visual Effects B.C. (Before Computers)’ by Mark D. Wolf, lives up to its name. Wolf says in his introduction that he isn’t that keen on digital simply because there’s so many people are doing it than having any real stars of special effects anymore. He’s probably right.
