INTRUDER: The first Halycon’s Aye story by: GF Willmetts

INTRUDER The first Halycon’s Aye story by: GF Willmetts   Sleep. Endless sleep. An eternity that passes in a moment. Dreams slowly evolved and passed based on previous fleeting memories. Dreams that often lasted a thousand light years although the sleepers could hardly measure the distance, deep in Slumber. Vivid though they may be, they […]

The Day Of The Triffids (1981) (DVD review).

Probably one of the most accurate portrayals of John Wyndham’s book, ‘The Day Of The Triffids’ is this series originally on the screen September-October 1981 and it still holds up well today. This is mostly because when we enter the story, the world has already begun to fall apart. Even as a hospitalised temporarily blinded […]

Creative Illustration by Andrew Loomis (book review).

You might have noticed in previous reviews, that I’m not only a fan of Andrew Loomis but and in good company with many of the comicbook artists who proclaim a similar interest and rather than have library editions or buy extremely expensive second-hand copies, can now buy a first-hand mint all the way from 1947.

The Noise Within by Ian Whates (book review).

You would think that with a title like ‘The Noise Within’ that author Ian Whates had produced a book to justify the title. The problem is it doesn’t. The title is actually the name of a missing Artificial Intelligence driven spaceship that has gone missing and has now come back to human space and the […]

Back To Frank Black edited by Adam Chamberlain & Brian A. Dixon (book review).

In many respects, when it comes to books on subjects relating to show-runner Chris Carter, ‘The X-Files’ tends to dominate everything. This book, ‘Back To Frank Black’, doesn’t. It focuses entirely on ‘Millennium’. Hard to believe the series is some sixteen years old now and probably that long ago since I saw it. However, reading […]

Enterprise Games: Using Games Mechanics To Build A Better Business by Michael Hugos (book review).

I had to put the full title, ‘Enterprise Games’, in or you would think there was a ‘Star Trek’ connection, when actually it has more in common with multi-player video games. Author Michael Hugos sees the metaphor of how we play computer games used in a business manner and along with other people, now use […]

The Creative Fire (book one of Ruby’s Song) by Brenda Cooper (book review).

From the start, author Brenda Cooper points out her lead character, Ruby Martin, has been influenced by the life of Eva Peron in her latest book, ‘The Creative Fire’. If I hadn’t read the back cover, I wouldn’t have known Ruby’s profession or the fact that she is part of a crew on a generation […]
