The Zombie Times: February 2013 edition (newsletter review).

Contrary to some people’s expectations the world did not end in December 2012. As far as the guys at ‘The Zombie Times’ are concerned, though, that just gives us a few more months to prepare for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. In this first issue of the new year, they’ve pulled together another summary of all […]

Jack Glass by Adam Roberts	(book review).

I’ve been staring at ‘Jack Glass’ for over an hour, trying to find the best way to start this review. There’s little point in summarising the plot, because the plot is just another post-modern cog in the cunning little machine that Adam Roberts has so intricately assembled. This is a clever book, but it’s a […]

Beautiful Redemption (Caster Chronicles series book 4) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (book review).

‘Beautiful Redemption is the last book in the four book ‘Caster Chronicles’ series preceded by ‘Beautiful Creatures’, ‘Beautiful Darkness’ and ‘Beautiful Chaos’. I love the fact that this is the last book, not because it will all be finished but because I know that the story won’t be extended further and further. Although a few […]

Succubus Revealed (book 6) by Richelle Mead (book review).

At the present time, Urban Fantasy as a sub-genre of standard fantasy is still on a high. As a result, there is plenty to choose from. The problem is how to decide what is worth reading? This may depend on the direction you approach it from. Vampires have come a long way from the days […]

The Religion of Science Fiction by Frederick A. Kreuziger (book review).

Putting ‘religion’ and ‘Science Fiction’ in the title as in ‘The Religion Of Science Fiction’ will have many of you wondering what this book is covering. Me, too. Religion comes up a lot in Science Fiction in many different roles and would be the logical choice as for its discussion point. Er, no. Although written […]

Camelot’s Sword by Sarah Zettel (book review).

The story of ‘Camelot’s Sword’ begins simply enough on one spring morning in the tin mining town of Cambryn. It is now four generations after the Roman Invasion of Britain and these are restless times. Steward Kenan travelled to Tintagel to petition King Mark for men, but was denied so he returned empty handed and […]

Married with Zombies by Jesse Petersen (book review)

Bad relationships. I’m sure we’ve all had them and managed to get though to the other side. But in ‘Married With Zombies’, author Jesse Petersen takes it to a new level. Our lead characters, Sarah and David, are on the cusp of a breakdown. They rarely communicate and when they do, it’s to argue. Their […]
