2010: A Scrapbook Odyssey by Jean-Marc Deschamps (book review).

Confession time, I pulled ‘2010: A Scrapbook Odyssey’ by Jean-Marc Deschamps about eighteen months ago after a little time tracking a copy at a decent price. Considering this is basically a photo-book, you wouldn’t think it would be difficult to fit into my reading schedule but such is the woes of reviewing. However, as I’m […]

Meal Time a matter of taste short story by: GF Willmetts  (very short story).

Meal Time a matter of taste short story by: GF Willmetts I like to know what I eat, especially after all the meat scandals over the years. I was lucky enough to avoid most of it. Even avoided the epidemic that made Mad Cow Disease look tame by comparison. Finding that I’m next on the […]

The first story by Simon Fay, entitled […]

The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination edited by John Joseph Adams (book review).

Every hero needs a villain. The ying to their yang, dark to their light, salt to their vinegar. Without a decent villain, what is a hero? Just some chump with big ideas about themselves, making the ordinary person feel a bit bad because they’re not going around helping everyone else. Think about it. How pointless […]

Blades of Winter (Shadowstorm #1) by G.T. Almasi (book review).

What were you doing when you were 19? I know I wasn’t up to much – no doubt moping about some girl and being a bit rubbish. I certainly wasn’t getting involved in international espionage incidents and kicking ass like Alix, the heroine of G. T. Almasi’s ‘Blades Of Winter’. Alix is a ‘Level’, which […]

Jack Glass by Adam Roberts	(book review).

I’ve been staring at ‘Jack Glass’ for over an hour, trying to find the best way to start this review. There’s little point in summarising the plot, because the plot is just another post-modern cog in the cunning little machine that Adam Roberts has so intricately assembled. This is a clever book, but it’s a […]
