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 […]

The Religion of Science Fiction by Frederick A. Kreuziger (book review).

Putting ‘religion’ and ‘Science Fiction’ in the title as in ‘The Religion Of Science Fiction’ will have many of you wondering what this book is covering. Me, too. Religion comes up a lot in Science Fiction in many different roles and would be the logical choice as for its discussion point. Er, no. Although written […]

Metro: Last Light… the sounds of the underground.

There are dystopian games universes and then there are dystopian game universes. Let’s just say that Metro: Last Light is the last place in the world I’d like to end up – as this grim trailer more than demonstrates.

The Colony… when mutant cannibal crazies attack (during the next ice-age).

A new scifi post-apocalyptic movie, The Colony. Survivors in an underground colony trying to get by during the next ice age (brought about by global warming and our attempts to hack a tech solution to it), get a message from another US-based colony asking for help. What from? Mutant cannibal crazies, of course. Here be […]

The Peacock Cloak by Chris Beckett (book review).

I enjoyed Chris Beckett’s first collection, the award-winning ‘The Turing Test’ and his recent novel, ‘Dark Eden’, so I was very happy to get a copy of his new collection ‘The Peacock Cloak’ to review. This volume collects together all of Chris Beckett’s stories published over the past five years, from such venerable venues as […]

Indigo Prime: Anthropocalypse by John Smith, Lee Carter and Edmund Bagwell	(comic-book review).

‘Indigo Prime’ is essentially a collection of three stories from ‘2000AD’, built up from work writer John Smith did back in 1991 and returned to here in 2008, so I’m running kind of blind to what happened then as I missed those stories. Can I work it out solely from this graphic novel? In the […]

Homeland by Cory Doctorow (book review).

Older does not necessarily mean wiser, not for Marcus Yallow, hero of Cory Doctorow’s bestselling and award winning novel, ‘Little Brother’. The sequel, ‘Homeland’, is set a couple of years later and opens with Marcus and his girlfriend, Ange, living it up at the Burning Man Festival in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. There, […]
