The Human Division by John Scalzi                 (book review).

Humanity is divided. Until recently, the Colonial Union and Earth had a co-dependent if not mutually beneficial relationship. In the highly anticipated follow up to ‘The Last Colony’, ‘The Human Division’ checks the pulse of the galaxy after John Perry exposed the fact the Colonial Union sequestered planet Earth for two hundred years in order […]

Oblivion (Mark’s take) (movie review).

Directed, produced, and co-written by Joseph Kosinski, ‘Oblivion’ is a new film that borrows heavily from other Science Fiction films but brings them to the screen with well-crafted special effects. Sixty years after a costly war with aliens, two people mop up the Earth before it is to be abandoned. The back-story is complex but […]

2001: A Space Rotation: an article by GF Willmetts (feature).

A lot of the articles I write often start from seeing a problem and then seeing how I can resolve it within the reality without bringing in anything not already presented. Occasionally, there is a revelation. Sometimes, two. This one falls under the latter and something in its current state that shows why it won’t […]

Draconian TV a possibility story by: GF Willmetts (story).

Dear Sir I wish to offer my resignation.

Farscape: The Complete Series (DVD review).

I bought this complete boxset of ‘Farscape’ shortly after it was release over a year ago when it was released on special offer. The decision was largely because it was cheaper to buy this way than each season separately as I had done with the first two seasons. This is beginning to be the same […]

The Body Stealers (1969) (DVD review).

The last time I saw this film was a morning viewing back in the 1980s. The DVD release announces it as a horror film when actually it is kitchen sink Science Fiction ie grounded in our reality albeit in the 60s. Quite why they have supporting actor Allan Cuthbertson on the cover as a selling […]

His Majesty’s Starship by Ben Jeapes (book review).

Whenever a Science Fiction novel is reprinted after a space of a number of years, there is always the question as to whether it has been able to stand up to the stresses of technological development and scientific understanding that has occurred in the intervening time. With books from the old masters, the answer is […]
