Tall, Dark And Hungry (Argeneau Family book 4) by Lynsay Sands (book review).

It is widely accepted that there is a section of readers who, having found a genre they like, demand more of the same. It is part of reason why Mills & Boon has been and still is such a success. Not all their novels have coy, virginal and idealistic heroines as the books have been […]

Jewels In The Dust by Peter Crowther (book review).

‘Jewels In The Dust’ is a collection of short stories by Peter Crowther. Publishers’ lore states that single-author collections are death at the box office so you need a high rating to get one put out. Does Peter Crowther deserve the honour? I’ll pick out a few highlights from the collection to show that he […]

NASA Moon Missions: 1969-1972 (Apollo 12, 14, 15, 16 And 17) Operations Manual by David Baker (book review).

When I read Haynes’ Apollo 11 and 13 books earlier in the year, I did wonder why the other Apollo Moon flights hadn’t been covered. The arrival of David Baker’s book, ‘NASA Moon Missions: 1969-1972 (Apollo 12, 14, 15, 16 And 17) Operations Manual’ is the remedy to that problem. Of course, it’s going to […]

Alliance Rising (Alliance-Union Universe) by C.J. Cherryh & Jane S. Fancher (book review).

I‘ve read all of C.J.Cherryh ‘s ‘Alliance-Union’ books in recent years, including the ones that were only vaguely related in that they were also somewhere in space but bore no relation whatsoever to the main sequence of books. ‘Alliance Rising’ takes place in the main setting, a string of space stations spaced several light years […]

The Banana Splits (horror movie: trailer).

You may fondly remember The Banana Splits as a weird slightly psychedelic 1970s children’s TV program run in what’s called today, a ‘magazine format’. Here’s the SyFy movie remake of it – but as a horror movie where the Banana Splits are demonic robots who will slay anyone to keep their show on the air. […]

The History Of Cults: From Satanic Sects To The Manson Family by Robert Schroëder (book review).

If you thought cults were a new trend, you will be surprised by this book, ‘The History Of Cults: From Satanic Sects To The Manson Family’ by Robert Schroëder. The sub-title is a bit of a misnomer as it extends up to this century. It seems mankind has always been persuaded by things they think […]
