The Quanderhorn Xperimentations by Rob Grant & Andrew Marshall (book review).

Like other great comedy Science Fiction novels before it, ‘The Quanderhorn Xperimentations’ is based on a BBC Radio series or, at least so the cover of the book says, though it also claims to have travelled back in time to be written before it occurred and also possibly to be a true story, so who […]

Metaparadise by John Lasheras (e-book review).

‘Metaparadise’ is a huge epoch and galaxy-spanning story. The hero is Alvin. He is a tech and business genius, whose inventions attempt to elevate human kind above and beyond their biological limitations. This has the unfortunate effect of catching the attention of hostile colonising aliens called the Annunaki, who have their sights firmly on Earth […]

A.I. Tales (2018) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

This is a collection of four unrelated Science Fiction stories with downbeat views of the world we are creating today in which we expect to live in the future. The bleak point of view is strongly reminiscent of the TV series ‘Black Mirror’. Each story is set in the future but expresses fears of modern […]

UFO: The Complete Series Blu-Ray Boxset With Book (Blu-ray/book review).

It isn’t as though I haven’t reviewed the DVD version of the ‘UFO’ TV series, so there is more an emphasis on the differences and extras in the blu-ray special limited edition. In fact, I thought I missed the boat completely in being able to buy a copy. More so as Andrew Pixley’s book included […]

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 […]
