The Event: The Complete Series (DVD SF TV series review).

It’s hard to say which ‘Event’ is referred to in the title of his single season series. Back in the early 1950s, an alien spacecraft crashes in the Antarctic. They appear human with a much longer life-span but 93 are injured and captured by the Americans and imprisoned there. What they don’t know is an […]

The Silent Invasion: Red Shadows Vol. 1 by Michael Cherkas and Larry Hancock (graphic novel review).

‘The Silent Invasion: Red Shadows Vol. 1’ is described by the authors as ‘a science-fiction mystery’ and that’s as good a term as any. It was originally published in the 1980s and this is a re-issue. The hero and first-person narrator is ace reporter Matt Sinkage. The story begins in April 1952 with a private […]

Incremental: 25 Tales Of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Speculative, And Bizarre Fiction Kindle Edition by Geoff Nelder (ebook review).

I’ve reviewed a few of Geoff Nelder’s SF stories in ‘Perihelion SF’ and liked them so he felt emboldened to send me an advance copy of his new collection, ‘Incremental’. I’m glad he did. The blurb says: ‘These twenty-five tales from Geoff Nelder have increment as a theme.’ The meaning of: Increment: Noun – an […]

Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons: The Vault by Chris Bentley (book review).

Seeing the history of the Gerry and Sylvia Anderson show, ‘Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons’ in Chris Bentley’s book, ‘Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons: The Vault’ does present some interesting revelations. Sir Lew Grade didn’t believe it was possible to have a TV series where the lead character could die and someone else replace them. […]

Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons: The Complete Series (Blu-ray series review).

If anything, it’s a bigger surprise that ‘Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons’ hasn’t had a blu-ray release until now. The format is as per its original TV release in 4:3 ratio. Oddly, the menu system between disks varies. I much prefer to see all the titles than having to reel a menu bar. As I’m […]

UFO (2018) (DVD film review).

I did wonder why the studio decided to call this film ‘UFO’ when there’s a famous 1970s TV series of the same name not only still out there but having a blu-ray release this year. It even looks like they’re using the same font. Why not call it ‘43×61’, the prime numbers sent out into […]
