The Best of Kage Baker.

The big problem with anything that is labelled ‘Best Of…’ is no one can actually agree what should be included or left out. While it is useful to stimulate discussion, the ultimate choice will either leave the reader smug or frustrated. While the author is available to be the final arbiter, there is an excuse […]

The Evil Tree by Erik Hendrix and Daniel Thollin

‘The Evil Tree’ is a rather good ghost story that is rather let down by the artistic style used to depict it. With the story taking up 98 pages, there is room for quite a bit of bonus material filling it out to a respectable 110 pages. Erik Hendrix is credited as the writer with […]

ParaNorman (Frank’s Take).

There are not many slick stop-motion animated features to boast about recently until the arrival of freakish and fun-loving monster fable ParaNorman. Highly sophisticated in its ghoulish gumption, ParaNorman is indeed a goose-bump treat for the kiddies as well as their grown-up counterparts that will rejoice in the Gothic-style antics of humor, hokey-minded horror and […]

Great Inventions That Changed The World by James Wei.

If ever I could time travel and got stuck in the past, I think this would be one book I would be carrying in my bag for all the useful information it carries. James Wei does, as his book title points out, looks at ‘Great Inventions That Changed The World’. This is a densely written […]

Failure is not an option. Or was it?

This makes for poignant reading after Neil Armstrong recently passed away from heart failure. It’s the U.S. President’s planned speech in the event the first manned landing on the moon went tit’s up and the astronauts died on the lunar surface (or in space on the way there). The last days of Camelot, it brings […]
