Green Lantern: The Animated Series music by Frederik Wiedmann.

The animated ‘Green Lantern’ series isn’t something I’ve seen over here but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want to listen to the music from the show. Gone are the days when there was a dependency on a jingo song. With full orchestration, this time by Frederik Widemann, the aim is for cinematic dramatics. If there […]

Spaceship Away Part 27 Summer 2012.

Get your 1950s style spaceship out, it’s time to join Captain Dan Dare in the latest edition of ‘Spaceship Away’. Oddly, in the opening part of Tim Booth’s story, Parsecular Tales’, he only makes a brief appearance as he’s off on a mission to the Asteroid Belt. It is Hank Hogan who is introduced to […]

Great Inventions That Changed The World by James Wei.

If ever I could time travel and got stuck in the past, I think this would be one book I would be carrying in my bag for all the useful information it carries. James Wei does, as his book title points out, looks at ‘Great Inventions That Changed The World’. This is a densely written […]

Supernatural: The Complete Fourth Season DVD boxset.

Life might have been hell after death for Dean Winchester (actor Jensen Ackles), but we don’t see it. Mirroring a certain vampire slayer, Dean wakes whole in his coffin (good thing he wasn’t cremated) and breaks out, discovering four months have gone past on Earth and forty years in Hell and has to prove to […]

Ecko Rising by Danie Ware

I really do hate coming down hard on a writer’s debut novel, but as I read Dani Ware’s novel, ‘Ecko Rising’, I was up for screaming, ‘Put some plot around the words.’ You learn more about that from the back cover what is supposed to be going on than the content. Ecko is a terrorist […]

The Coldest War (book 2) by Ian Tregillis

It is 1963, some eighteen years after World War Two, in this alternative reality, Germany wasn’t split between Russia, American and Great Britain, but held solely by the USSR, who have been quiet about the concentration camps and the rest of the world has swung back to normal. This ‘normal’ looks something like pre-WW2 but […]

Star Trek: The Next Generation 365 by Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann.

With the spate of Vault books in recent years, I did wonder if there would be any type of books that could compete with them. ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation 365’ must surely be a contender and more importantly, it’s twenty-five years since the series first started on TV. I should point out from the […]

Energized by Edward M. Lerner

Edward Lerner’s latest book, ‘Energized’, is a post-disaster book. An accident has resulted in the Middle East oil being radioactive contaminated, according to the book’s inside sleeve, and Russia has a bigger say in where other countries’ power resources are procured from. It’s a shame there isn’t more emphasis on this disaster in the opening […]

Don’t Step Over The Welcome Mat

a story of house etiquette by: GF Willmetts   I don’t let anyone breathing into my house.   I can see what you’re thinking. You’ll hold your breath. I tell you, when you see my axe, you’ll have a sharp intake of breath. Works every time. So, come on over.   © GF Willmetts 2012 […]

It’s Not Rocket Science by Ben Miller.

Contrary to the title, ‘It’s Not Rocket Science’, Ben Miller’s book covers a lot of rocket science, especially in the final chapter. Then again, all the sciences are involved in rocket science. In many respects, this book is using Miller’s way of talking and metaphor to explain the basics of science in a more down-to-earth […]
