Science In Practice (Editorial – Jan 2021).

Hello everyone, Seeing science working is kind of scary for a lot of people, despite the fact that they rely on science for much of their lives, not just in your home but many other things. In fact, you would have to wonder how those who have an element of fear of science get on […]

Being Geek: Born, Bred Or Just Creative (an article by GF Willmetts).

One of the first lessons I learnt in General Semantics is that labels are imprecise names because no one or thing is a precise fit. In that respect, we should treat being geek in the same category. The simple proof is geeks are invariably seen as loners with odd specialist interests. Hands up those of […]

Retro Fan #12 January 2021 (magazine review).

Please do not get confused by the January release date of this latest ‘Retro Fan’, it actually the Christmas edition but more on that later. A good chunk of this issue is devoted to ‘Three’s Company’, the American version of the UK sit-com ‘Man About The House’, which is probably why it was never shown […]

Holly Jolly by Mark Voger (book review).

A tiny confession: I’m not the festive type. Can’t eat the food nor drink or socialise with diabetes and agoraphobia medicine and food intolerances being the cause. For those of you experiencing the lack of socialising, it’s just situation normal for me. I thought I ought to admit that in case anyone who knows wonders […]

Editorial – Dec 2020:  Don’t stop alternative solutions.

Hello everyone, With the end of the year looming and the fact that our reality has turned ever more into a Science Fiction reality, it does raise an interesting question as to whether we anticipate future consequences before they happen. After all, we’ve been having pandemics on and off for several years, mostly country-contained until […]

Retro Fan #11 November 2020 (magazine review).

With the latest issue of ‘Retro Fan’, we are back into the realms of the original ‘Dark Shadows’ with an interview with actor David Selby. I remember his interviews a long while back in ‘Fangoria’, and his friendly nature is the same here as well, giving insights into the part and how fans stood outside […]

Editorial – Nov 2020: Cuddle Your Safety Blanket And Touch Your Fingertips.

Hello everyone, We all have a safety blanket. Not in the literal sense, unless you’re really very young but we don’t appear to catch many in that age group. In case you don’t know, in context, a safety blanket is a generic term for something we regularly use to get away from the troubles of […]

What To Do When The World Isn’t Watching: an article by: GF Willmetts.

Occasionally I like to speculate about our own world and oddly how it will affect our own genre in the covid-19 situation, although I doubt if people will want to read SF versions of what is going on now. I mean, what can they do but speculate on an inoculation or cure and I suspect […]

Editorial – Oct 2020: Reality over maps. Where no computer model goes.

Hello everyone, Looks like we’re back to realworld talking this month with so much happening in our isolating and distance world. I have to confess some confusion when the media says covid-19 is having a second spike when the first one wasn’t really over and the numbers only dropped when people had kept their distance […]
