The Gift Of Fire/On The Head Of A Pin by Walter Mosley (book review)

Can you handle change? A new home or a new place to work? How about a new reality that changes everything you believe in, maybe for the better, maybe for the worse. But a definite change nonetheless. These are subject of Walter Mosley’s loosely-connected ‘Crosstown To Oblivion’ series. The flip-over style is perfect for these […]

Radical Distortion: How Emotions Warp What We Hear by John W. Reich (book review).

I wasn’t really sure about John W. Reich’s book, ‘Radical Distortion: How Emotions Warp What We Hear’, as it took a couple chapters to settle down into what he was getting at. After that, it started to make sense. Reich’s focus is on how people are persuaded not only by someone talking but the emotional […]

The Outcast Blade (The Assassini book 2) by Jon Courtenay Grimwood (book review).

‘The Outcast Blade’ is the second ‘act’ of ‘The Assassini’, an alt-historic fantasy focusing on the political and romantic intrigues of fifteenth-century Venice; it follows on from ‘The Fallen Blade’, which I didn’t really enjoy and is considerably more assured than its predecessor. The Venice of the time was Europe’s richest city, grown fat on […]

Lunar Rover: 1971-1972 (Apollo 15-17; LRV1-3 & 1G Trainer) Owners’ Workshop Manual by Christopher Riley, David Woods & Philip Dolling (book review).

The ‘Lunar Rover: 1971-1972 (Apollo 15-17; LRV1-3 & 1G Trainer) Owners’ Workshop Manual’ has a fascinating history. The vehicle, not the book, that is. Authors Christopher Riley, David Woods and Philip Dolling even point out the Rover’s Science Fiction roots and even early ideas appearing in ‘Lost In Space’ and ‘Thunderball’. A lot of the […]

The Explorer by James Smythe (book review)

Apparently Hell is other people, so what does that make the complete absence of company? Heaven? Purgatory? Or perhaps a fresh circle of Hell that makes you crave that annoying work colleague to pop up with inappropriate comments? I’ve always been comfortable in my own company but even I would struggle to cope if I […]
