Sci-Fi: Days Of Fear And Wonder (book review).

The initial flick test I do on any illustrated books had me spotting some film stills I hadn’t seen before. Always a good sign when picking up a book. The ones that I initially spotted included a full page photo from ‘Close Encounters Of The Third Kind’ as Neary is being groped by the aliens […]

Tau Zero by Poul Anderson (SF Masterworks) (book review).

Coming across a reference to Poul Anderson’s book, ‘Tau Zero’, recently, I realised it was one of the few significant SF books of the Golden Age that I hadn’t actually read. I think, at the time, I hadn’t realised what the term ‘tau zero’ actually meant. Now I do. Basically, the closer your velocity reaches […]

Altered Seasons: Monsoonrise by Paul Briggs (ebook review).

Relative newcomer Paul Briggs brings us a cli-fi novel with an eye-catching and dramatic cover in the form of ‘Altered Seasons: Monsoonrise’. Cli-fi, by the way, is climate fiction, this being a near-future story of climate change, which is one of those categories that skirts the edges of SF in that it’s slightly in the […]

Shi: A Dark Adventure Into Living Forever (Immortality Interrupted book 1) by C.F. Villion (book review).

‘Shi: A Dark Adventure Into Living Forever’ by C.F. Villion is the first in the ‘Immortality Interrupted’ series which is currently a three book series. I’d call it a trilogy, but I don’t know how the third book ends so there could be more and there is a 32 page short story which is numbered […]

Manifest (TV trailer).

Here’s a trailer for NBC’s new science fiction TV series, Manifest, which puts us in mind of those old series The 100 with a bit of Flash Forward added for good, or bad, measure. Montego Air Flight 828 lands after a turbulent flight, but its American crew and passengers find that during the two hours […]

Bleeding Steel (scifi movie trailer).

Here’s some Jackie Chan action SF movie that looks so full of cheese it has to be made mainly for the Chinese market. It’s called Bleeding Steel. Jackie’s a cop who has to hunt down a rogue superhuman cyborg created by the evil military. It kind of looks like someone took the bad off-cuts of […]

AXL (YA scifi movie trailer).

In what looks like a modern updating of the film Short Circuit, here’s Axl, where a rebellious teen bonds with a dog-like escaped military robot and then has to go on the run when the evil corporation that designed it wants their steel killing machine back. Sounds reasonable to me! Hitting the cinemas 10th August […]

Sense8 (last series).

Here’s the trailer for the very last series of Sense8, hitting Netflix on June 8th 2018. Glad to see this bad boy was saved from the sin-bin for one final series with, hopefully, some real resolution and wrap-up.
