God And The Folly Of Faith by Victor J. Stenger (book review).

It is hardly surprising that with a title of ‘God And The Folly Of Faith’ that author Victor J. Stenger is showing why faith is not enough and not just with Christianity but also Catholic and Muslim and, I suspect, any other religion you want to include in your remit. He states that religions have […]

Modesty Blaise: The Girl In The Iron Mask by Peter O’Donnell and Enric Badia Romero	(graphic novel review).

It’s spring and time for the best pick-me-up tonic in reading as Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin are back in three more tales. Enric Badia Romero’s art is as good as ever and Peter O’Donnell writes to his strengths. I must disagree with Laurence Blackmore’s introduction where he declares Sir Gerald Tarrant as being the […]

Indigo Prime: Anthropocalypse by John Smith, Lee Carter and Edmund Bagwell	(comic-book review).

‘Indigo Prime’ is essentially a collection of three stories from ‘2000AD’, built up from work writer John Smith did back in 1991 and returned to here in 2008, so I’m running kind of blind to what happened then as I missed those stories. Can I work it out solely from this graphic novel? In the […]

English Grammar For Dummies by Lesley J. Ward and Geraldine Woods (book review).

You know how it is, you look around a book remainder shop and spot a subject that you know something about and decide to have a peek inside and check out an item that you’re familiar with and see if they got it right, which they did, then you wonder about checking out the entire […]

Is SF ethical? (Editorial – March 2013)

Hello everyone Listening to the audio commentary on the DVD ‘Doctor Who: The Daemons’ this month, actress Damaris Hayman made a comment that not all Science Fiction is ethical and that made me think. Apart from what is she comparing it to and how well read she is in the genre, not to mention specific […]

Last Gasp, a story by: GF Willmetts (fiction).

There once was a time people could walk in the open until they were blue in the face. I wonder if they would have thought it would be so true today as I peered into the smog about me, carefully inhaling my own limited air supply. It was my own fault really. I thought I’d […]

When Gravity Meets Inertia – an observation by: GF Willmetts (article).

Gravity makes everything fall down. Inertia makes everything stay there until given a push by something that can move it. How can they not be related? When I review Brian Clegg’s book ‘Gravity’ in January 2013, I raised inertia as being akin to it. After a little ponderance, I thought the subject deserved a better […]

The Whole Story Of Climate by E. Kirseten Peters (book review).

When I started E. Kirseten Peters’ book, ‘The Whole Story Of Climate’, I was expecting, based off the cover, something more akin to our current change climate change. Actually, this book goes back to the origins of geology and how what we know about the planet. This is important because if you’re going to understand […]
