Stone Clock (The Spin Trilogy 3) by Andrew Bannister (book review).

I’m always worried when the explanation of what the story is about on the cover sleeve isn’t reached until some 43 pages into the book. The Spin is a series of virtual realities or vrealities with Skarbro flitting across a few of them in what appears to be cockroach-like body form as he does so. […]

Street Freaks by Terry Brooks (book review).

Terry Brooks is the second fantasy author I’ve picked up in recent months who decided to write a Science Fiction novel for a change. Whether this is to help the SF novels or to attract a readership to his normal fantasy readership is hard to say. All I can do is read the book on […]

Dragon’s Code (Dragonriders Of Pern) by Gigi McCaffrey (book review).

I did wonder on why there was a new ‘Dragonriders Of Pern’ book after so long and was told that Gigi McCaffrey wanted a novel out there to celebrate her mother, Anne McCaffrey’s 50th anniversary since her first Pern novel, ‘Dragonflight’. 50 years! Now I know I’m getting old. There are two things that are […]

The Non-Threatening Mysterons: an article by: GF Willmetts.

We’re all familiar with ‘Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons’ where a Mars expedition led by Captain Black discovered the Mysterons. Thinking their sensory equipment were weapons, they opened fire first only to see the Mysterons reconstruct their city, control Captain Black and stage a war of nerves against the humans for their aggression. To do […]

Life In The Paradox: a short story by: GF Willmetts.

There I was waiting. Not me me, of course, but still me. A younger me. I’m the older me. I think I was fulfilling a paradox. For the time machine to work, I had to return to the past to give myself the information to enable me to complete the time machine so one day […]

Bumblebee (movie trailer).

It looks like the Transformers film franchise is moving into prequel territory with their next offering, Bumblebee. You know the deal … big loud shooty robots blasting crap and lots of people running around. Come back, Shia LaBeouf, all is forgiven. Here’s the flick’s official blurb… On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge […]

Alphas: Season Two (DVD TV series review).

The entire season 2 is devoted to the apparent government run Alphas team tracking down the extremely long-lived Stanton Parish (actor John Piper-Ferguson) and his Alphas network as they plan the genocide of the human race. Of course, there is the little matter of Doctor Lee Rosen (actor David Strathairn) being locked up after his […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jul/Aug 2018, Volume 135 #738 (magazine review).

The first thing to note about the July/August issue of ‘The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ is the wonderfully retro-cover painting. Bob Eggleton’s ‘Big Mars’ shows a 1950s-style angular rocketship sitting vertically on the craggy surface of Deimos, the smaller of Mars’ two moons, while the sky above is dominated by a huge Mars, […]

He had told me he’d been ill recently but was getting back into the swing of reviews. Some of our chats often centred on the contrast on living in Germany where he was born and […]
