Terraforming Mars (video doc).

We already have the technology to bring humans safely to Mars and set up small settlements – or at least could do within a generation. But those settlements will need to be cocooned – shielded against the deadly cold, intense radiation, and the fatal lack of atmospheric pressure. Surely if we want to thrive on […]

Fleetway Picture Library Classics Presents Jet-Ace Logan  (graphic novel review)

I have to confess that I haven’t heard of ‘Jet-Ace Logan’ but am aware of one of its artists Ron Turner who drew the final two stories in this volume. The first two are drawn by German artist Kurt Caesar. Only the third story has a writer acknowledgement for David Motton. If you thought someone […]

Wanderers by Chuck Wendig (book review).

Some books remind us how small we are or how transient life is and as a result make you want to find someone important to you and give them a hug. ‘Wanderers’ by Chuck Wendig also does this but you’ll make damn sure you wash your hands straight afterwards. Jumping between a large cast of […]

Russian bio-weapons plague-lab burns down (science news).

Here’s a rather less than scintillating science news story which sounds like the prologue to that bit in World War Z where Brad Pitt gets landed in Russia with a special forces team to search a half-destroyed lab building for the cure to the zombie outbreak. You want zombies? Because this is how get zombies! […]

Stephen King and Joe Hill seed some horror for Netflix in, ‘In The Tall Grass’ (trailer).

Here’s the scary ‘ol movie for Netflix’s adaption of the Stephen King and Joe Hill short, In The Tall Grass. Looking at it, you have to think … genius; they shot a movie so cheaply all they had to do was find a field and ask the cast to wander around lost in it for […]

Battlestar Galactica reboot reboot coming, from Sam Esmail (of Mr. Robot-fame).

A Battlestar Galactica ‘reboot reboot’ is coming, from Sam Esmail of Mr. Robot-fame as part of the new streaming service from NBC Universal launching April 2020. Mixed feelings about this one. Is rebooting a reboot just diluting the clone gene pool a little too much? Also, Peacock, another new pay-to-view streaming service? On the other […]
