Saving For A Sunny Day by Ian Watson (book review).

‘Saving For A Sunny Day’ is a single author short story collection and the author is Ian Watson. There’s a long introduction by Adam Roberts telling us what a brilliant writer Mr. Watson is. Oddly, it put me off him. On the other hand, when I read the first couple of stories, I quickly realised […]

Deadpool 2 (2018) (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

Deadpool rules! Okay, admittedly this is an unconventional way to segue into a film review without sounding like a giddy fanboy. Nevertheless, the costumed glib-sounding gladiator is back on the scene in ‘Deadpool 2’ up to his usual trivial tricks in the Marvel Universe. After making a sensational splash as the wise-cracking warrior with the […]

Bumblebee (2018) (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

Filmmaker Michael Bay finally did right by the ‘Transformers’ movie series regarding his monotonous, massive mechanical misfits. Instead of helming another insipid instalment after directing the previous six clash-and-clang clunkers he had sense enough to step behind the scenes with a producing credit. This time around Travis Knight (Kubo And The Two Strings’) calls the […]

Rejoice, A Knife To The Heart by Steven Erikson (book review).

The arrival of an alien intelligence to intervene in Earth’s affairs signals an end to violence, illness and environmental degradation. You would think this would be good news, but a lot of the rich and powerful, as well as the violent and sadistic, are not very happy at all. As force fields spread across the […]

The Smallest Of Things by Ian Whates (book review).

I’d been aware of Ian Whates as a Science Fiction author for some years, but never got around to reading any of his work. To be honest, while I’ve always been an SF fan, I have tended to favour the supernatural over science for my reading material in recent years. More recently, I’ve become aware […]

Weird City (scifi TV series trailer).

YouTube Premium needs content that will make you pay with dosh, so what could be better than copying – I mean a ‘homage’ – to the UK’s scifi Black Mirror TV series, with their own satirical science fiction anthology exploring the messed up near future, called Weird City. This one has some interesting names taking […]
