There’s a second trailer out for the next series of Penny Dreadful, which updates the steampunk Victorian horror vibe to a more Cthulhu-like 1930s America setting … aka, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels!

Keep Watching The Skies! American Science Fiction Movies Of The Fifties: The 21st Century Edition: 2 Volume set by Bill Warren (book review).

I think everyone has heard of Bill Warren’s opus ‘Keep Watching The Skies! American Science Fiction Movies Of The Fifties’ over the years. This version, split into two volumes, should make it easier to read than the hardback at 1004 pages. Bear in mind these books are large and double column, then text-wise, you should […]

Mail-Order Mysteries by Kirk Demarais (book review).

I’ve been planning on pulling a copy of Kirk Demarais’ book, ‘Mail-Order Mysteries’, for some time.

As kids in the 1960s, we could only look at the cheap prices […]

Comet Weather by Liz Williams (book review).

‘Comet Weather’ is a story of four half-sisters and the search for their mother, who has been missing for a year. That could easily be the opening line of the description of a common or garden family mystery/drama, with no fantastic elements whatsoever. Anyone expecting something like that has never read a Liz Williams book […]
