Cinderbrella Or What If The Shoe Didn’t Fit :  a Psi-Kicks story by: GF Willmetts

There were some times that Polly Kettle was glad that she left her team behind when she did a reconnaissance. More so in the steampunk reality Max had placed them in. Still a message was a message. A personal invitation card to a gala ball for her upper class alias, a royal ball at that […]

Kronos (1957) (a film retrospective by Mark R. Leeper).

CAPSULE: With a film like ‘Kronos’ the viewer should not be looking at how convincing the special effects are but how clever and efficient they are as they come close to working. From a distance, ‘Kronos’ looks like a fairly spectacular Earth invasion film. Seen individually each visual effect seems to give up its secrets […]

Disturbed Digest June 2018 (e-mag review).

As with ‘Bloodbond May 2018’, I bought ‘Disturbed Digest June 2018’ in the Smashwords summer sale for a mere dollar, so it’s good value financially. It’s good value artistically, too. The opening story is ‘As the Crow Flies’ by Lorraine Pinelli Brown. Set in the American corn-belt, it’s about Isaiah, a good ol’ boy who […]

Low Chicago: A Wild Cards Novel book 27 edited by George RR Martin (book review).

Throughout all the ‘Wild Cards’ books, despite using poker terms for their titles, this is the first time we actually see a poker game taking place. The players include Aces with some Jokers as their supporters in a winner-takes-all game in Chicago. The only problem is that there is some disruption and one of the […]

Girl With Cat (Blue) by Sam Hawksmoor (book review).

In the early days of creating alternative world scenarios, the protagonist entered the other world through some strange happening. Often, it turned out to be a coma. As scientific theories advanced with the idea of string theory somehow postulating branching timelines, parallel universe became more ‘explainable’ though getting there was still a problem. Sometimes, the […]
