Zero Theorem… Terry Gilliam does the batshit again.

Terry Gilliam does the batshit again (but in a good way) with his new SF film Zero Theorem, which looks like it takes some of those Brazil-like twists and turns and gives them a bit of a cyberpunk spin around the block.

Let’s join the International Fleet in this trailer for the new Ender’s Game movie. Be remembered as a hero? I’d rather be remembered for dying in bed aged ninety, thanks all the same.

The Woman Who Married A Cloud by Jonathan Carroll	(book review),

Proof copies of books are produced for a number of reasons. An author always likes to know what the finished product will look like and to be able to spot any glaring errors before the book hits the shops, like the title spelt wrongly on the cover. They often get sent to reviewers. Although there […]

7 Against Chaos by Harlen Ellison and Paul Chadwick with Ken Steacy (graphic novel review).

In many respects, ‘7 Against Chaos’ is very much a re-working of ‘The Magnificent Seven’ or ‘The Seven Samurai’ plot. A mysterious stranger brings together a variety of talented individuals of various ages, shapes, species and criminal background. This time, it’s not to rescue a starving village from bandits but a need to time travel […]

Editorial – July 2013: by GF Willmetts: ‘It’s only Science Fiction…’

Hello everyone How often have you heard people say about some advanced technology, ‘It’s only Science Fiction…’, as if that will be something unlikely to happen in the near future?

By A Stoke Of A Pen : a short story by: GF Willmetts.

What was the old song? ‘War? What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!’ Whoever wrote it must have been a pessimist or a successful loser. It’s all about winning and certainly not to be on the losing side. You don’t go to war unless you think you’re going to win. Two possible winners? No! Ultimate […]
