Cat-Loving Criminals: an article by: GF Willmetts.

The Official Kiss Magazine Poster Book #2 (magazine review).

We were offered a selection of magazines from Fantasm Media. Principally, looking at their website, they cover horror and Kiss, so which my fellow reviewer will be looking at the former, I thought I’d look at the latter, especially as the band are doing their ‘End Of The Road Tour’ right now. ‘The Official Kiss […]

More so as fraternal […]

Editorial – July 2019  :   All hail the geek outsider.

Hello everyone Having reviewed ‘The History Of Cults: From Satanic Sects To The Manson Family by Robert Schroëder’ this month, I was amazed how many were still active and how the press hasn’t raised much issue about them in a few years. Of course, there is still the distinction as to what makes a ‘cult’. […]

Samurai Warrior Operations Manual by Chris McNab (book review).

I did wonder when I selected Chris McNab’s book, ‘Samurai Warrior Operations Manual’, as to whether it fell without our remit. As I read, I saw pointers to the Minbari in ‘Babylon 5’ and, of course, the recent ‘Westworld’ TV series visited the time period. So, yeah, we should be interested in the real thing. […]
