Invisible Ecologies by Rachel Armstrong (book review).

Rachel Armstrong’s second novel ‘Invisible Ecologies’ is subtitled ‘Songs Of The Ecocene II’ although, from what I could tell, it is unrelated to last year’s ‘Origamy’, which is now volume I of the series. The interesting thing about this series title, I thought, is that actually when you step back and think about what you’ve […]

Pendulum (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng].

‘Thirty years ago the Hubble telescope detected a gravitational “rip” at the edge of the galaxy…’ ‘A generation was born knowing the world was going to end in their twenties. Their time is nearly up…’ Indeed, a haunting and reflectively chilling sentiment to writer/director/actress Lauren Cooney’s enthralling SF short film ‘Pendulum’. Cooney’s fine-tuned, contemplative alarmist […]

How To Do Things: A Timeless Guide To A Simpler Life edited by William Campbell (book review).

I did think before opening the covers of this book, ‘How To Do Things: A Timeless Guide To A Simpler Life’ edited by William Campbell, that it was more do with doing things for yourself. It is, to some extent, but more to do with life in the early 20th century and an American magazine […]

Necropolis PD by Nathan Sumsion (book review).

The information that came with the review copy says of ‘Necropolis PD’: ‘It’s the debut novel of Nathan Sumsion, a game designer from Round Rock, TX and Salt Lake City, UT.’ Now this could be a good thing or a bad thing as I have read far too many poor books based on video games […]
