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

In the past month, even in the faster fibreoptic speeds, things seemed to be slowing down. An odd effect of playing ‘Fortnite’ which does eat a lot of net channels was back to the odd effects I was having when on standard broadband, like waiting to respawn for extended periods and, this time, a lack […]

A Letter Column In The Kingdom Of SFCrowsnest

We’ve been debating for a long time to have a letters column on SFCrowsnest, aside from our comments to particular subjects or reviews, without compromising our security measures. You’d hate to see how many virus attacks we ward off on a weekly basis. As such, this will be treated as an experiment and if it […]

Alien Roots  :  a short story by: GF Willmetts

From space, our Earth looks a delightful blue from the oceans with a touch of green from the vegetation. It doesn’t show the effects of how we badly polluted it with plastics and other assorted materials that we are slowly sorting out. With all of that distracting us, the discovery of an interstellar message board […]

Legion: Secret Origin by Paul Levitz, Chris Batista and Marc Deering (graphic novel review).

While I was still mopping up anything Legion Of Super-Heroes’ that DC Comics had left hanging around, I came across ‘Legion: Secret Origin’, from the 2011 mini-series, written by Paul Levitz with art pencilled by Chris Batista and inked by Marc Deering. The only problem was to work out which version of the LSH it […]

The Golden Age Of Science Fiction by John Wade (book review).

For the book title ‘The Golden Age Of Science Fiction’, author John Wade is referring to the UK from the 1950s to the very early 1960s, with references beyond. Essentially, you are seeing a time period that you might not have grown up in and I was nearly a decade later. There are also loads […]

Epson EcoTank printers (tech review).

We don’t normally do reviews of computer hardware. There’s enough of it out there for you to make your own decisions as to what you buy. My old printer was having a meltdown and it was getting passed nursing it. The problem with getting a replacement was finding that several generations had passed and my […]

“One More Thing, Sir…”: A Memoir by Michael Sloan (book review).

I remember the name Michael Sloan with his association with ‘The Return Of The Six Million Dollar Man And The Bionic Woman’ and its two sequels but hadn’t really realised just how much other work he’d done over the years. Remembering credits isn’t something I normally did or made the connections. Sloan first did a […]

Magic: The Gathering: Rise Of The Gateway: A Visual History by Wizards Of The Coast and Jenna Helland (book review)

I am not a fantasy fan let alone ever played a card game associated with it. If anything, the only thing I can really explore here is the art in ‘Magic: The Gathering: Rise Of The Gateway: A Visual History’ by Wizards Of The Coast and Jenna Helland. How much of the art played is […]

You like Science Fiction? You read Science Fiction? You eat Science Fiction? If you could get it in a bottle, then you’d probably drink it down neat or through a straw. You think you can write Science Fiction? Hmmmm!!! Are all these thoughts conflicting? Chances are that you’ve read some pretty naff material and had […]
