Logo-A-Gogo by Rian Hughes (book review).

I have to confess to not knowing who Rian Hughes is but looking at the people praising him prior to the introduction then I must have seen his work as indeed you have. After this book, you’re not likely to forget him. I thought more about my opening line after reading this book and figured […]

UFO (2018) (DVD film review).

I did wonder why the studio decided to call this film ‘UFO’ when there’s a famous 1970s TV series of the same name not only still out there but having a blu-ray release this year. It even looks like they’re using the same font. Why not call it ‘43×61’, the prime numbers sent out into […]

Stone Clock (The Spin Trilogy 3) by Andrew Bannister (book review).

I’m always worried when the explanation of what the story is about on the cover sleeve isn’t reached until some 43 pages into the book. The Spin is a series of virtual realities or vrealities with Skarbro flitting across a few of them in what appears to be cockroach-like body form as he does so. […]

Street Freaks by Terry Brooks (book review).

Terry Brooks is the second fantasy author I’ve picked up in recent months who decided to write a Science Fiction novel for a change. Whether this is to help the SF novels or to attract a readership to his normal fantasy readership is hard to say. All I can do is read the book on […]

Dragon’s Code (Dragonriders Of Pern) by Gigi McCaffrey (book review).

I did wonder on why there was a new ‘Dragonriders Of Pern’ book after so long and was told that Gigi McCaffrey wanted a novel out there to celebrate her mother, Anne McCaffrey’s 50th anniversary since her first Pern novel, ‘Dragonflight’. 50 years! Now I know I’m getting old. There are two things that are […]

Editorial – October 2018: Dystrophic Science Fiction rarely ends well.

Hello everyone I blame ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ for bringing dystrophic Science Fiction back into vogue, although really, it hasn’t gone away, just not so extreme and not so close to our current time that it can make people uncomfortable. After all, George Orwell’s ‘1984’ is one of the rare SF books on school curriculums and […]

The Non-Threatening Mysterons: an article by: GF Willmetts.

We’re all familiar with ‘Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons’ where a Mars expedition led by Captain Black discovered the Mysterons. Thinking their sensory equipment were weapons, they opened fire first only to see the Mysterons reconstruct their city, control Captain Black and stage a war of nerves against the humans for their aggression. To do […]
