Occult Detective Quarterly Presents edited by John Linwood Grant & Dave Brzeski (book review).

Writing even a contemporary detective story at short length is difficult. It is not the setting of the scene that causes the problem but being able to show how the mind of the detective or, in some cases, the villain works.

Cannibals And Carpet Fitters (2018): (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

A company of carpet installers goes on their worst job ever when they have to install carpets in a mansion with a family from the London Chainsaw Massacre. Droll English humour if never hilarious, it does have its share of funny lines and circumstances. It’s working class characters making usually amusing comments. Some will find […]

Nebula Awards Showcase 2017 edited by Julie E. Czerneda (book review).

I’ve enjoyed reading a lot of the Nebula Awards winning novels over the past few years, so it seems like the members of the SFWA who vote for the awards have pretty good taste. The annual ‘Nebula Awards Showcase’ volumes contain the winning novellas, novelettes and short-listed short stories, as well as excerpts from the […]
