Buffy Goes Dark edited by Lynne Y. Edwards, Elisabeth L. Rambo and James B. South (book review).

If I included the sub-title of ‘Buffy Goes Dark’ with the indice above, you would instantly know the subject matter and know it has nothing to do with Buffy dying her hair, although it would probably swamp the title line. So, let’s put it here instead: ‘Essays On The Final Two Seasons Of Buffy The […]

Meal Time a matter of taste short story by: GF Willmetts I like to know what I eat, especially after all the meat scandals over the years. I was lucky enough to avoid most of it. Even avoided the epidemic that made Mad Cow Disease look tame by comparison. Finding that I’m next on the […]

The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination edited by John Joseph Adams (book review).

Every hero needs a villain. The ying to their yang, dark to their light, salt to their vinegar. Without a decent villain, what is a hero? Just some chump with big ideas about themselves, making the ordinary person feel a bit bad because they’re not going around helping everyone else. Think about it. How pointless […]

Blades of Winter (Shadowstorm #1) by G.T. Almasi (book review).

What were you doing when you were 19? I know I wasn’t up to much – no doubt moping about some girl and being a bit rubbish. I certainly wasn’t getting involved in international espionage incidents and kicking ass like Alix, the heroine of G. T. Almasi’s ‘Blades Of Winter’. Alix is a ‘Level’, which […]

Jack the Giant Slayer (film review) (Frank’s Take).

Fee…Fi…Foe…Fum…I detect an unfavorable critique from the blood of a disenchanted American movie critic! What do you know…some giants are rather perceptive after all, huh? Well, perception is not necessarily on the radar for director Bryan Singer’s bloated bedtime blockbuster ‘Jack The Giant Slayer’, a colourful clunker set to the fairy tale flourishes of arbitrary […]
