Fleetway Picture Library Classics Presents Jet-Ace Logan  (graphic novel review)

Battlestar Galactica reboot reboot coming, from Sam Esmail (of Mr. Robot-fame).

A Battlestar Galactica ‘reboot reboot’ is coming, from Sam Esmail of Mr. Robot-fame as part of the new streaming service from NBC Universal launching April 2020. Mixed feelings about this one. Is rebooting a reboot just diluting the clone gene pool a little too much? Also, Peacock, another new pay-to-view streaming service? On the other […]

Lost Transmissions: The Secret History Of Science Fiction And Fantasy edited by Desirina Boskovitch (book review).

I doubt if anyone interested in our genre is truly expert in all aspects of Science Fiction anymore. You would need unlimited time, insomnia and an open-ended chequebook, not to mention a good memory. ‘Lost Transmissions: The Secret History Of Science Fiction And Fantasy’ really focuses on the more obscure information or things you might […]
