An evil Hungarian called Gustav Hunyadi may be his match. This villain is plotting to send a howling horde of […]

After a somewhat mysterious prologue in which some beings are downloading their consciousness into robot duplicates, we move onto ‘Part One: Collective Revelations’. A crew of aliens are escorting a deadly prisoner back to their military base. […]

Nano-Bytes by Daniel C. Smith   (ebook review)

‘Nano-Bytes’ is a collection of short-shorts by Daniel C. Smith which I bought because I rather liked ‘3 Of A Perfekt Pear’, his collection of long short stories. First up is ‘Macro-Virus’, an amusing tale about a grad student on an exploratory hike in Chaco Canyon, an important native American historical site with two professors […]

Jack Kirby Collector Seventy-Four    (magazine review)

I always look forward to receiving the ‘Jack Kirby Collector’ and this one had an extra feature. Half of it was printed upside down! Which half depends on how you pick it up. I read 47 pages and came to a double page spread, after which there were another 47 pages the other way up. […]

The Bridge: How The Roeblings Connected Brooklyn To New by Peter Tomasi and Sara Duvall (graphic novel review).

I’m an apt reviewer for this book because I live in Bristol, England where the most famous landmark is the Clifton Suspension Bridge designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the city’s favourite son. Well, almost. Pretending that a French cockney was really a Bristolian at heart is quite a stretch but we don’t seem to have […]

3 Of A Perfekt Pear by Daniel C. Smith (ebook review).

This little book contains three stories by Daniel C. Smith, all of which were first published in ‘The Fifth Di…’. Nomadic Delirium Press has an enlightened policy of putting out these one author collections so that readers who like the writer can garner a bunch of his stuff cheap. I like Daniel C. Smith. As […]

The Tulku Of Titan And The Terror Of Titan by Mike Morgan (ebook review).

‘The Tulku Of Titan And The Terror Of Titan’ is a short book so I won’t have a lot to say. I picked it up because I have read and enjoyed Mike Morgan’s stories in various magazines. This batch of two stories was put out by Nomadic Delirium Press, who bundle up works previously published […]

Apollo by Matt Fitch, Chris Baker and Mike Collins (graphic novel review).

21 July 2019 will be the 50th anniversary of that ‘one small step’ by Neil Armstrong onto the surface of the Moon. There should be dancing in the streets but there will be plenty of commemorative books and television documentaries. SelfMadeHero, publishers of many interesting works, have got in early with this book. ‘Apollo’ is […]

Out In The Open by Jesús Carrasco and Javi Rey (graphic novel review).

My girlfriend wouldn’t have got past page one, the hanging dog. I mention this because if you’re the sort of person that wouldn’t get past page one you’ll regret buying the book and I don’t want to mislead anyone. If you’re not fazed by that and worse then it’s a good read about finding some […]
