Judge Dredd Megazine #424 (e-magazine review).

‘Thirty Magnificent Years’ says the cover of this special anniversary issue but I bought it because the stories are all just beginning, on part one, which makes it easier for the reader. That said, each of the strips has a lot of background now and, if you haven’t been following religiously for the last thirty […]

The Immortal (1969-71) (DVD TV series review).

I bought ‘6 Sci-Fi Series Collection’ as a cheap way to acquire ‘The Immortal’ (1969-71) but as I also like to watch disks this was the second. If you waited for me to watch all 6 series before doing a complete review, it’ll be a long wait. So what I’ve decided to do is report […]

Black Mirror: The Complete Fourth Series (DVD SF TV series review).

Be warned, the first episode is 75 minutes long although it’s pretty misleading when 125 minutes popped up on the screen and there is no division times between the two episodes per disk. ‘USS Callister’ seems to be a ‘Star Trek’ spin until it is revealed that its captain, Robert Daly (actor Jesse Plemons) is […]

C.D. sits down to re-watch the 1978 horror-scifi movie, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, in which a San Francisco health inspector and his colleague discover that humans are being replaced by alien duplicates; each is a perfect copy of the person replaced, only devoid of human emotion … this one had Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, […]

The London theatrical production of Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds musical is being made free on YouTube for 48 hours as part of The Shows Must Go On! series of weekly streamed shows run, we believe, by Andrew Lloyd Webber to try to keep the rather plague-f*&^$£ed British Theatre scene on life support.

Fantastic Science-Fiction Art: 1926-1954 by Lester Del Rey (book review).

For those of you wanting to complete your SF cover art collection, Lester Del Rey’s 1975 book, ‘Fantastic Science-Fiction Art: 1926-1954’, is still out there and I was surprised how reasonably easy it was to get a mint copy. I say ‘reasonably’ simply because reviewing a copy here might reduce the number of copies available. […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Nov/Dec 2019, Volume 137 #746 (magazine review).

Unfortunately, the opposite has been the case, which is why I’m only now getting round to reviewing the issue of ,The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, from November/December 2019. The mag includes five novelettes, […]
