Editorial – May 2019: Where have all the geeks gone?

I tended to assume that most people didn’t use them publicly, under-used or chose not to develop their abilities or spent too much time socialising rather than think […]

Beyond Human: Living With Robots And Cyborgs by Gregory Benford and Elisabeth Malartre (book review).

I bought ‘Beyond Human: Living With Robots And Cyborgs’ by Gregory Benford and Elizabeth Malartre several years back and with a bit of a lull now, have gotten into reading it.

The Apollo Missions In The Astronauts’ Own Words by Rod Pyle (book review).

Rod Pyle seems to be involved in a lot with space books this year. This one, ‘The Apollo Missions In The Astronauts’ Own Words’, unlike the others is closer to being a photo album with some rare photographs, making it a decent companion piece to them. Pyle gives information about the missions interspersed with dialogue […]

The modern stories are interspersed with two or three-page essays about real legends of Cornwall. These are informative and add an extra dimension to the book. In the contents page and the text, they […]
