Case in point is ‘Rewrite’ by scriptwriter Paul Chitlik, who includes a lot of SF in his CV. Although the book is primarily aimed at how to […]

Cabinet Of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections And Other Obsessions by Gullermo Del Toro (book review).

The one thing that is most obvious from director Gullermo Del Toro’s book ‘Cabinet Of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections And Other Obsessions’ is that he’s a bona fide geek. Then considering that Jim Cameron is also a geek and writes the introduction about his pal, this shouldn’t be surprising. In other words, he’s one of […]

The Wolf At The End Of The World by Douglas Smith (book review).

I don’t read a lot of paranormal stuff. I prefer aliens, which to me are usually more plausible than vampires and werewolves. I don’t believe in magic or ghosts (much to the horror of many of my friends) and I think zombies are a horrifying fad and impossible! There are some interpretations of lore I […]

Ashley and the other Wild Cards (people who are immune to the zombie virus and have enhanced abilities) are all most done cleaning Redwood Grove of its zombie infestation. Yay! Group hugs everyone!
