Editorial – May 2019: Where have all the geeks gone?

Hello everyone When you were young, did you make the assumption that all people were the same as yourself and when did eventually concede that they weren’t?

Life In The Fibreoptic Lane: an article by: GF Willmetts.

I was a latecomer to broadband nearly a decade back and only discovered it was possible to change to fibreoptic last November and that my broadband supplier could do it on special offer.

‘For a reality that isn’t stanya…stable, it’s lasting a long time’, MacKensie commented, watching Callane Oberon eat her diet of grubs.

There are two plot threads to follow in the sixth regeneration of the Doctor (now actor Colin Baker) as he has become rather unstable with panic attacks and nearly strangling Peri Brown (actress Nicola Bryant).

Katz’ book, ‘Film Directing Shot By Shot’ so I came into this 25th anniversary edition with an initial surprise that it is both bigger in size and page count than their usual product. Much of this difference is because this book covers […]

The Apollo Missions In The Astronauts’ Own Words by Rod Pyle (book review).

Rod Pyle seems to be involved in a lot with space books this year. This one, ‘The Apollo Missions In The Astronauts’ Own Words’, unlike the others is closer to being a photo album with some rare photographs, making it a decent companion piece to them. Pyle gives information about the missions interspersed with dialogue […]
