Rejoice, A Knife To The Heart by Steven Erikson (book review).

The arrival of an alien intelligence to intervene in Earth’s affairs signals an end to violence, illness and environmental degradation. You would think this would be good news, but a lot of the rich and powerful, as well as the violent and sadistic, are not very happy at all. As force fields spread across the […]

The Smallest Of Things by Ian Whates (book review).

I’d been aware of Ian Whates as a Science Fiction author for some years, but never got around to reading any of his work. To be honest, while I’ve always been an SF fan, I have tended to favour the supernatural over science for my reading material in recent years. More recently, I’ve become aware […]

Lasers, Death Rays And The Long, Strange Quest For The Ultimate Weapon by Jeff Hecht (book review).

Jeff Hecht’s book, ‘Lasers, Death Rays And The Long, Strange Quest For The Ultimate Weapon’ should draw your immediate attention. After all, such weaponry is the fodder of Science Fiction or so you would think. However, military interest in such a weapon came about with the development of electricity and throwing it without a wire […]

This one has some interesting names taking […]

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets (2017) (DVD film review).

I have been a fan of Science Fiction for over four decades. Over that time, though, I have almost exclusively read stories written in English. It’s only in the last few years that I’ve realised how much SF I’ve been missing out on because it was originally published in another language. After reading an excellent […]

Steampunk Commodore 64 laptop sizzles.

One of the more interesting items to feature at this years CES 2019 show in the USA surely must be the Steampunk Commodore 64 laptop modded by the UK’s very own Bad Dog Designs. Might as well mod it, eh, anyone still working on a Commodore 64 probably feels like they are stuck in the steam age. It […]

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. If there is insufficient space the detective has to either be regarded as an […]

Gemini Gambit by D Scott Johnson (ebook review).

Occasionally and I do mean occasionally, I stumble across a gem of a novel that I missed when it was first published. ‘Gemini Gambit’ by D Scott Johnson is a prime example of this and I’m so glad I came across it. I have found it very hard to put down this novel as the […]
