Utopiates Volume 1 by Josh Finney & Kat Rocha (graphic novel review).

‘Utopiates’ owes a lot to Philip K. Dick’s drug-tipped futures and it is for this reason that because it shows people jacking up drugs that this is not a book for kids. What this drug does is implant the personality of other people. Considering that Eckert kills while intoxicated with Jack Ruby, the killer of […]

50 Simple Questions For Every Christian by Guy P. Harrison	 (book review).

In many respects author Guy P. Harrison sounds like he’s walking on eggs in his introduction with his book ‘50 Simple Questions For Every Christian’ in trying not to be offensive, although it might really just to ensure you read on. Considering, as he points out, there are 41,000 Christian denominations, I would have thought […]

Farscape: The Complete Series (DVD review).

I bought this complete boxset of ‘Farscape’ shortly after it was release over a year ago when it was released on special offer. The decision was largely because it was cheaper to buy this way than each season separately as I had done with the first two seasons. This is beginning to be the same […]

Age Of TV Heroes by Jason Hofius and George Khoury (book review).

‘Age Of TV Heroes’ by Jason Hofius and George Khoury is a book I’ve been really looking forward to reading. With the opening chapter, the most startling thing was to realise how many TV pilots over the decades that were filmed with super-heroes but were either not shown or if they were, not getting a […]

The Body Stealers (1969) (DVD review).

The last time I saw this film was a morning viewing back in the 1980s. The DVD release announces it as a horror film when actually it is kitchen sink Science Fiction ie grounded in our reality albeit in the 60s. Quite why they have supporting actor Allan Cuthbertson on the cover as a selling […]

The Mystery Of Existence edited by John Leslie and Robert Lawrence Kuhn (book review).

The sub-title of ‘The Mystery Of Existence’ is ‘Why Is There Anything At All?’ to which I heartily retort say, ‘I think, therefore I am.’ Trying to unravel existence is something that is never likely to have that much of a solution. Mostly because we are part of it and our objectivity has to be […]

Cult Telefantasy Series by Sue Short (book review).

Within seven chapters, Sue Short’s book ‘Cult Telefantasy Series’ only examines nine examples and on a couple occasions, two to a chapter, cult TV series. She uses the 1960s series ‘The Prisoner’ as the standard for all cult series after it. Although there’s a massive list at the back, I couldn’t help but wonder whether […]

The Complete Nemesis The Warlock Volume 3: Books 8-10 by Pat Mills, David Roach, John Hicklenton, Clint Langley, Henry Flint, Kevin O’Neill and Carl Critchlow (graphic novel review).

The opening book has Nemesis The Warlock admit that his stand on good and bad is ambivalent as he actually gets turned on by the excitement of his actions, much to Purity Brown’s disgust. However, although he might show some of the same harsh decisions, he also does good by his actions and that of […]

Lone Wolf Terrorism by Jeffrey D. Simon (book review).

As we’ve all seen from the press, terrorism isn’t restricted to groups but also to the acts of individuals. The fact that they can inflict so much murder and carnage before being apprehended or killed, either by their own hand or that of others, is mostly because they can appear to be so ordinary or […]
