I live in deepest darkest Essex where I enjoy photography, real ales, walking my dog, cooking and a really good book. I own an e-book reader which goes with me everywhere but still enjoy the traditional paper based varieties.

My oriental studies have earned me a black belt in Suduko and I'm considered a master in deadly Bonsai (there are very few survivors).

Joker: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Hildur Guðnadóttir (film soundtrack review).

While ‘Joker: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’ is billed as the original motion picture soundtrack, you need to be aware of what your buying here. It is the musical score of the movie composed by Hildur Guðnadóttir and does not include the many other songs played in the movie. You will have to go looking elsewhere […]

Away (2019) (animated film review).

I settled down to watch ‘Away’, an animated feature film with anticipation. It’s not Disney and it’s not Manga, so it’s going to be different. It certainly is different. Before we get to commenting on the film let’s get the credits out of the way as it won’t take long. The film was written, directed, […]

Cryptids (podcast review).

Well this is new for me, reviewing a podcast. There was a time when I was always listening to podcasts but, somehow, I fell out of love with them. When the opportunity to review ‘Cryptids’, a new SF scripted podcast I was in two minds but decided to give it a go. I’m really glad […]

Eternity: Wing And Pray by Leon M.A. Edwards (book review).

‘Eternity: Wing And Pray’ by Leon M.A. Edwards arrived in my inbox with very little fanfare which is probably just as well. In the acknowledgement at the front of the book the author thanks God for giving him the confidence to start writing and the ability to write a story so we can probably surmise […]

Cold Storage by David Koepp (book review).

There was quite a bit of a press release accompanying the link to the ebook version of this debut book by David Koepp. Apparently, he was the screenwriter for ‘Jurassic Park’. I think he will be remembered more for his involvement with ‘Jurassic Park’ than the author of ‘Cold Storage’. The release said it would […]

Necropolis PD by Nathan Sumsion (book review).

The information that came with the review copy says of ‘Necropolis PD’: ‘It’s the debut novel of Nathan Sumsion, a game designer from Round Rock, TX and Salt Lake City, UT.’ Now this could be a good thing or a bad thing as I have read far too many poor books based on video games […]

Into The Badlands: Season 1 – Original Series Soundtrack by Dave Shephard (cd review).

Varèse Sarabande released AMC’s ‘Into The Badlands: Season 1 – Original Series Soundtrack’ by David Shephard in 2018. For those not familiar with the series it is a dystopian adventure set in a feudal future world where firearms are banned, and martial arts prevail. There’s also an element of magic thrown in for good measure, […]

The Rosewater Insurrection by Tade Thompson (book review).

It’s with a little trepidation that I approach ‘The Rosewater Insurrection’ by Tade Thompson. The first book left a lasting impression on me as it was quite different to the other books I had been reading at that time. It was also very well written. On one hand I’m please as the publisher is saying […]

Rendel: Dark Vengeance (film review).

I was offered a choice of pre-release viewings of this Finnish comic-book action film. I chose to watch it in Finnish with English sub-titles as I thought it might add to the ambience of the film. I’m glad I did as it does but don’t worry if sub-titles aren’t your thing as there is an […]

Ghost Stories: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Frank Ilfman.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! That’s not the best way to start a review of a soundtrack but it sums up my opinion rather nicely. The reason for this is the ‘Ghost Stories: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’ by Frank Ilfman. The film was released in the UK back in April 2018 and the soundtrack […]
