Dragon’s Code (Dragonriders Of Pern) by Gigi McCaffrey (book review).

I did wonder on why there was a new ‘Dragonriders Of Pern’ book after so long and was told that Gigi McCaffrey wanted a novel out there to celebrate her mother, Anne McCaffrey’s 50th anniversary since her first Pern novel, ‘Dragonflight’. 50 years! Now I know I’m getting old. There are two things that are […]

The Non-Threatening Mysterons: an article by: GF Willmetts.

We’re all familiar with ‘Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons’ where a Mars expedition led by Captain Black discovered the Mysterons. Thinking their sensory equipment were weapons, they opened fire first only to see the Mysterons reconstruct their city, control Captain Black and stage a war of nerves against the humans for their aggression. To do […]

Life In The Paradox: a short story by: GF Willmetts.

There I was waiting. Not me me, of course, but still me. A younger me. I’m the older me. I think I was fulfilling a paradox. For the time machine to work, I had to return to the past to give myself the information to enable me to complete the time machine so one day […]

Alphas: Season Two (DVD TV series review).

The entire season 2 is devoted to the apparent government run Alphas team tracking down the extremely long-lived Stanton Parish (actor John Piper-Ferguson) and his Alphas network as they plan the genocide of the human race.

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jul/Aug 2018, Volume 135 #738 (magazine review).

The first thing to note about the July/August issue of ‘The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ is the wonderfully retro-cover painting. Bob Eggleton’s ‘Big Mars’ shows a 1950s-style angular rocketship sitting vertically on the craggy surface of Deimos, the smaller of Mars’ two moons, while the sky above is dominated by a huge Mars, […]

He had told me he’d been ill recently but was getting back into the swing of reviews. Some of our chats often centred on the contrast on living in Germany where he was born and […]

Captive State (scifi movie trailer).

Here’s a trailer for a new science fiction movie called Captive State, set in Chicago in the USA ten years after a successful alien invasion. From the looks of the trailer, it looks like the aliens are venerated in a near religious frenzy – so presumably they’ve put out with some high tech solutions to a […]
