The Smoke by Simon Ings (book review).

Simon Ings brings us an alternative Earth in his latest book ‘The Smoke’, where history has diverged at some point from what we know to produce something far more bizarre than usually encountered in alternative histories. This is due to the pivotal event where this world split from our own being a biological discovery rather […]

The Overneath by Peter S. Beagle (ebook review).

Peter S. Beagle’s latest book, ‘The Overneath’, isn’t a novel but an anthology. ‘The Green-Eyed Boy’ is a story about the youthful Schmendrick, big-nosed clumsy magician star of Beagle’s best-known work ‘The Last Unicorn’, which I haven’t read. It’s narrated by Schmendrick’s master, the magician to whom he is apprenticed, a great wizard called Nikos. […]

Dreams Must Explain Themselves: The Selected Non-Fiction Of Ursula K. LeGuin (book review).

Ursula K. LeGuin died on 22 January 2018, narrowly missing the release of her last book, ‘Dreams Must Explain Themselves: The Selected Non-Fiction Of Ursula K. LeGuin’. This is 50 articles that she wrote between 1972-2004. Looking through her booklist that Gollanz provided at the opening of the book, I’ve only ever read four of […]

Jabberwocky (The Criterion Collection) (1977) (Blu-ray film review).

Some might associate it with Lewis Carroll’s poem of the same name, while others with a streak of daftness in them will fondly remember the 1977 film directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Michael Palin. The film is allegedly inspired by […]

Sci-Fi Movie Trump Cards.

I would have thought that releasing this pack of cards, ‘Sci-Fi Movie Trump Cards’ would have been more appropriate at Yuletide than February but maybe the publishers thought it might be overlooked with whatever else you have going on. I should point out that the ‘Trump’ in the name is to do with card games not […]

Graphene by Les Johnson & Joseph E. Neany (book review).

If you thought graphene was a newly discovered form of carbon, reading Les Johnson and Joseph E. Neany’s book on the subject places its earliest appearance to the mid-1920s. In case you didn’t know, carbon comes in many forms of allotropes. You’re all familiar with coal and diamond, but its molecular pattern offering up two […]
