Suppose We (The Flying Crooked series book 1) by Geoff Nelder (ebook review).

Robert Silverberg said that the novella is the ideal form for a Science Fiction story because it gives a writer enough room to fill in the background. He also said that a Science Fiction writer should have ‘some vestige of some knowledge of some science’. ‘Suppose We ‘is a Science Fiction novella from Geoff Nelder, […]

DefCon 4 (1985) (film review).

For those who don’t know, ‘DefCon 4’ is, apart from the name of this film and the name for a reaction in the event of a world-war nuclear war. Although written as ‘Def-Con 4’, the title in the film has no hyphen, so I shall refer to it as that. The Nemesis Mission is a […]

Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson (book review).

For anyone who doesn’t already know his work, Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the most well-respected living authors of hard Science Fiction in the world, perhaps most famous for his detailed depiction of the process of colonising another planet in his award-winning ‘Mars’ trilogy (1992-1996). ‘Aurora’ comes from the same vein of realistic space […]

The Andromeda Strain (1971) (Blu-ray film review).

I’ve always had some affection for ‘The Andromeda Strain’. Next to ‘2001’, it was probably one of first hard science SF films I’d seen with a no-star cast, although I did recognise James Olsen from ‘The Time Tunnel’ as I originally saw this film when it first came out. This is also the first book […]

Brightburn (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng]

It would have been very interesting sitting inside a Hollywood movie studio board meeting when a pitch was made for a unique kind of horror film with super-hero overtones concerning an iconic Man of Steel as an intended reference:  ‘What if a young Clark Kent/future Superman arrived on Earth and decided to walk on the […]

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters (2019)   (movie review).

In ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, the film’s plot picks up 5 years after the events of the last film, ‘Godzilla’ (2014), when eco-terrorist anarchists led by Alan Jonah begin freeing the Titans, in an attempt to restore the natural order. The central message the film peddles is the rather simplistic humanity=bad, nature=good. We are […]

This Side Of Hell: a story by: GF Willmetts.

I am Schrödinger’s ghost. Well, not really him but his living theory. I got hit by a car and an inch from having my head run over by one of its wheels. In some other reality, someone pretty much like me had his head flattened and seriously dead. I was the lucky one. I also […]
