Nebula Awards Showcase 2018 edited by Jane Yolen (book review).

This is my second ‘Nebula Award Showcase’ in quick succession, a volume that presents a mixture of excerpts from and complete winning and shortlisted stories, novelettes, novellas and novels from the prestigious award voted for by members of the SFWA. I generally read only Science Fiction but, of course, there’s a second, silent ‘F’ in […]

An American Story by Christopher Priest (book review).

An American Story by Christopher Priest is my novel of the year, a grabbing, electrifying and chilling read. It’s probably best categorised as a conspiracy thriller, with settings in the near past, the present and the near future. Ben Matson tells the story. He’s an English freelance science journalist, living in Scotland (independent and a […]

The War Beneath by Timothy S. Johnston (book review).

Timothy S. Johnston knows how to write thrillers set in tight spaces, so the setting for his latest novel, ‘The War Beneath’, may seem a little expansive, until you consider just how tight a space the ocean can really be. Despite the fact water covers over seventy percent of our planet, it’s actually a rather […]

Space Patrol: The Complete Series (1962-63) (Blu-ray TV series review).

It was a big surprise spotting I nearly missed ‘Space Patrol’ was being released earlier in the year on blu-ray. Back in the 1960s, it was the only other space age puppet show other than the Andersons’ Century 21 company, although it was a breakaway from that led by Arthur Provis when creator Roberta Leigh […]

The Boost by Stephen Baker (book review).

‘The Boost’, title and product of Stephen Baker’s book, is a neural link embedded in people’s skulls, allowing them to interface with a futuristic Internet and request information and share photos. Although written in 2014, not much different to what some of you have on your smartphones today. However, the upcoming latest world-wide upgrade due […]

Typeset In The Future: Typography And Design In Science Fiction Movies by Dave Addey (book review).

Very occasionally I can have a ‘Oh my god’ moment as if deities exist. Looking at the title, ‘Typeset In The Future: Typography And Design In Science Fiction Movies’, it’s pretty obvious that author Dave Addey is going to be looking at various films and be telling you about the various fonts that were used. […]
