Assault On Precinct 13/Dark Star by Alan Howarth (album review)

This album features music from John Carpenter’s 1976 cult classic ‘Assault On Precinct 13’ and his debut film ‘Dark Star’ from 1974. Given that one film is a police station siege drama and the other is a deep space thriller, it’s probably best that we separate the two films, both originally composed by Carpenter and […]

New Pacific Rim poster.

Pacific Rim is the rather non-scifi-sounding science fiction film from Guillermo del Toro, hoping to bring the Japanese fetish for giant robot versus monster movies to the Western world.

Look at the title ‘Digital Rapture: The Singularity Anthology’ and puzzle over what it means. To me, a singularity is a black hole. Here, editors James Patrick Kelly & John Kessel define it from Vernor Vinge’s essay ‘The Coming Technology Singularity: How To Survive In The Post-Human Era’, another equally baffling title which they explain […]
