Corporate Gunslinger by Doug Engstrom (book review).

‘Corporate Gunslinger’ is a tale of the near future. There are the haves, there are the have nots and very few living in between. Human life is so cheap as to be meaningless to the rich which is a pity as its all the poor have left. Kira wanted to be an actress. College is […]

Seven Days: The Complete Series (DVD boxset review).

It’s hard to believe that these three seasons of ‘Seven Days’ were from 1998-2001, let alone that it took so long for a DVD boxset to be released and then stupidly only region 1 and the long river website unable to deliver it abroad. It took a few years and a bit of luck to […]

Space Above and Beyond retrospective (video).

Rowan J Coleman brings us a little Space Above and Beyond retrospective via the magic of the streaming tubes. This is one science fiction TV series I enjoyed loads, too, although it seemed very spotty scheduling here in the UK as I recall (this was back in the day when we relied on video recorders).

StoryHack Action & Adventure Issue 6 – Kindle Edition (emag review).

Here be stories. ‘Rakes And The Pirates Of Malabar’ is by Mike Adamson, whose stuff I’ve read before and like, especially his novella ‘Last Train To Deakin Valley’. Here, he’s in pulp mode with a ripping yarn set in 19th century India. Edgar Quincannon Rakes is a former soldier heading back to England but, having […]

Bloodshot (2020) (dvd film review).

Well, let’s be honest I enjoyed this film ‘Bloodshot’. It might upset a few people as it seems to pull in bits from a lot of other major SF films that have aired in the last 20 years. Perhaps longer, but it is an enjoyable action film nevertheless. It might even get to be regarded […]
