Mistletoe by Alison Littlewood   (book review)

Strong emotions can leave their mark. One of the theories behind hauntings is that powerful events are recorded by the fabric of the place they happen in and are replayed when the right trigger is tripped. Other ghostly sightings are attributed to unfinished business on the part of the deceased. This might be benign or, […]

Requiem, Changing Times by R.J. Parker   (book review)

The Requiem has been stolen, an artefact that would allow the forces of evil, known as the Fury, to spread across everything and rule with a dark iron fist. The Fury has the scent of those who took it and they have a name…Clint Holden. O’Neil, a dwarf with a pet squirrel, and a human […]

Doing Time by Jodi Taylor (book review).

You would think that the first three chapters from individual first person perspectives of the three key players that Jodi Taylor’s novel, ‘Doing Time’, would be doing the same throughout. It doesn’t. From therein, it becomes a third person narrative. These three chapters do suffer a bit. Mostly because they are in first person and […]

The Man in the High Castle (Season 4 trailer: Amazon Prime).

The Man in the High Castle TV series is back on November 17th 2019 on Amazon Prime for its final and fourth season. Do we beat the parallel reality Nazis in the end? What do you think? Actually, it would be a very PK Dick ending if they end up winning in both dimensions!

Luna: New Moon (book 1) by Ian McDonald (book review).

I’ve read Ian McDonald’s short story ‘The Fifth Dragon’ a couple of times, a story set in the early days of moon colonisation that sets the scene for the five big family corporations who dominate the lunar economy. It was intriguing enough that I wanted to read the trilogy of ‘Luna’ novels that follow on […]

Retro Fan #6 Fall 2019 (magazine review).

The opening features of the latest edition of ‘Retro Fan’ is pure Americana as I can’t recall them ever being shown over here. The first is an interview by Dan Johnson with TV horror host Svengoolie although I think he should have been called Son Of Svengoolie as he’s the second of that name. Amusingly, […]

Magic Triumphs (A Kate Daniels novel book 10) by Ilona Andrews (book review).

In a more and more competitive market, writers have to do more to make themselves noticed, not only by the potential publishers but by the readers as well. Thus, the first novel in a series needs to put the protagonists into great peril, ramping up the tension and perhaps allowing them to survive by the […]

Print me a space rocket, please (science news).

When you decide to print your space rocket engines using 3D printers you can drop hundreds of unnecessary components and make them super-resilient compared to traditionally-built engines. Is this the way of the future? It should also be pointed out, that many of the descriptions of the USA’s so-called reported captured flying saucers match this […]
