Harlan Ellison, SF author and legend, dies of old age.

Harlan Ellison, the science fiction author, has died of old age. Peaceably, in his own bed – which is somewhat ironic, given his legendary irascibility. We kind of expected him to go while wrestling a Black Bear, a ninja, a country sheriff, two critics, a movie mogul and a lawyer to the ground, his bedroom […]

Nemo Rising by C. Courtney Joyner (book review).

It’s a long time since I read ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’ by Jules Verne, so I don’t remember a great deal about it. Admittedly, it’s even longer than that since Jules Verne wrote it in 1870. ‘Nemo Rising’ features the return of Captain Nemo and the Nautilus, as well as more sea creatures, marvellously […]

Nano-Bytes by Daniel C. Smith   (ebook review)

‘Nano-Bytes’ is a collection of short-shorts by Daniel C. Smith which I bought because I rather liked ‘3 Of A Perfekt Pear’, his collection of long short stories. First up is ‘Macro-Virus’, an amusing tale about a grad student on an exploratory hike in Chaco Canyon, an important native American historical site with two professors […]

The Predators’ hunt comes back to Earth – and the USA (naturally) – in Shane Black’s reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species (the alien from Alien, possibly). When a young boy accidentally triggers […]
