MI6: British Security Intelligence Service Operations 1909-1945 by Nigel West (book review).

When I saw the two Nigel West book covers together, I couldn’t help feeling there might be some confusion in picking up the right book if I was buying one of them in a bookshop and they were facing out from the same shelf. After all, there is only a matter of one word added […]

No Time To Die (James Bond spy-fy movie trailer).

In the new spy-fy flick No Time To Die, James Bond has departed from the dangerous fields of active service and is enjoying a tranquil retirement in Jamaica (maybe his liver is still in danger from all that rum). His peace is short-lived, however, when his old chum CIA boss Felix Leiter CIA turns up […]

War Of The Worlds: an appraisal of the third episode of the BBC’s 2019 new series (TV review).

These Martians are carnivorous, even if they do turn you into a soup to eat you. Even so, travelling from Mars to Earth for a snack, living off the remnants of mankind seems an odd way to go. You would think they would need more people alive than simply cutting them down. If they were […]

Editorial – December 2019 :  There should never be such a thing as a ‘don’t know’.

Hello everyone The test of an ideal political system depends on a couple things if it is to succeed. The main one is the co-operation of the majority of the population and doing no harm to the rest, commonly called the opposition who might be persuaded to accept it. The latter is a lot harder […]

The Problem With Fantasy: an article and story by GF Willmetts.

I might have mentioned in passing over the years that I don’t particularly like fantasy, mostly because it’s so easy to cheat and not explain how things are the way they are. Any fantasy novel or even other media source that can explain its reality in a satisfactory way rather than rely on ‘magic’ and […]

Away (2019) (animated film review).

I settled down to watch ‘Away’, an animated feature film with anticipation. It’s not Disney and it’s not Manga, so it’s going to be different. It certainly is different. Before we get to commenting on the film let’s get the credits out of the way as it won’t take long. The film was written, directed, […]
