Interzone # 240 – May-Jun 2012 (magazine review).

This is the May-June 2012 edition of the magazine with a cover depicting a figure with a human head but robotic human body suspended upside down above a pool. It has the well-established format of an interview, a selection of short stories and some reviews. From the cover artwork my expectations were to expect a […]

The Stars Blue Yonder by Sandra McDonald	(book review).

The inside cover note says that Chief Terry Myell died and became a god and now he’s back to life. He is being directed to save humankind but gets distracted with time travel and an alien adversary called the Flying Doctor. Having read the book, I can say that just about sums it up with […]

Fringe… no more.

The last episode of science fiction TV series Fringe is heading our way and it’s a two-hour doozie. Here’s a trailer for it… no major spoilers, but make your own mind up before you watch it. A whole future civillization aestetically modelled on Kojack. Who would have thought it?

Another trailer for the science fiction TV series Continuum which features the Timecop-like premise that criminal terrorists from the future have come back in time to create an end-of-the-world style event, and a lone cop from the future has pursued these death cultists to try and stop them. Coming to the USA soon – no […]

Robot & Frank… file under sensitive and moving.

Here’s a slice of near-future science fiction, the Sundance-winning SF film Robot and Frank, in which an old codger played by actor Frank Langella gets a robot nursemaid (that resembles the Sony Labs droid) to help look after him from his kids… son James Marsden and daughter Liv Tyler, who are sadly too busy too […]

Alien invasion? Offer… Defiance.

Defiance is the SyFy Channel’s latest piece of original programming and can best be described as aliens do to humanity on Earth what the European settlers did to the Native Americans across the big pond. Colonise and pillage. Here’s the new trailer for this interesting slice of high concept scifi. Will it be as good […]

Pacific Rim – suit up!

Suit up, chaps and chapesses, for there’s a rent under the sea spewing out extra-dimensional giant monsters, and only a great big mecha exo-suit is going to be enough to take them down. Actually, I’m sure an air strike with suitable weaponry and explosive tonnage would do the trick – but that wouldn’t look half […]

Revolution – power plays.

As you can see in this new trailer for US TV series Revolution, the lights are off, not not quite everywhere, as the Monroe Republic manages to get some Huey slicks working for a little rebel bashing. Season 1, delayed part deux, at last. If you are in the USA, Revolution is heading back your […]

Transformers: Exodus – The Official History Of The War For Cybertron by Alex Irvine (book review)

War, huh? What is it good for? Setting up a billion-dollar movie franchise apparently. ‘Transformers: Exodus’ sets the soon-to-be Optimus Prime and Megatron on a collision course for the leadership of Cyberton, creating a parallel between the civil rights movement, placing the former in the role of Martin Luther King and the latter as Malcolm […]
