Space Precinct: The Complete Series (1994) (DVD TV series review).

Considering how Network is working their way through the Gerry Anderson series, it was an interesting surprise to see ‘Space Precinct’ appear. I have to confess that I haven’t see it since its original release back in 1994, so was curious to see how it holds up compared to the CGI series of today. Oddly, […]

The Consuming Fire (Interdependancy book 2) by John Scalzi (book review).

Last year’s book, ‘The Collapsing Empire’ by John Scalzi, was a riotous, no-holds-barred imperial space opera that was a lot of fun and introduced us to the intriguing setting of the Interdependancy. The sequel is ‘The Consuming Fire’, which follows on with the same set of characters as they face up to the imminent collapse […]

Legion: The Many Lives Of Stephen Leeds by Brandon Sanderson (book review).

“That was fantastically, amazingly brilliant,” I said as he closed the cover on ‘Legion: The Many Lives Of Stephen Leeds’ by Brandon Sanderson. “Really?” Bartholomew sneered from his position by the window. Bartholomew wasn’t real – none of the other people in the room were – but that didn’t stop him having an opinion. “That’s […]

If Pigs Could Fly (West Kensington Paranormal Detective Agency Book 1) by Jonny Nexus (book review).

So in fiction, for a character to be rounded, humour is necessary, if only to give the reader a chance to appreciate the dire peril the author has put […]

The Spacetime Pit Plus Two by Stephen Baxter and Eric Brown (book review).

I’ve been a fan of Eric Brown’s character-based Science Fiction and Stephen Baxter’s hard SF stories for many years but had no idea that these two luminaries of British SF had ever collaborated.

Comic-Con October 2018: Event Report.

The end of October meant another trip down to the ExCel centre to attend MCM Comicon. This time I upped my game and secured a second press pass for my “photographer”, who definitely wasn’t just a random friend from my uni course. Like last time, the best part of the convention remained the atmosphere; before […]
