Polaris Rising (The Consortium Rebellion Book 1) by Jessie Mihalik (book review).

Blending sexually charged romance with action, space travel, fashion and politics, ‘Polaris Rising’ is focused on the audience at the centre of a very specific Venn-diagram. While one of the interesting things about writing reviews for this site is being exposed to books that I wouldn’t normally read, I’m pretty certain that I’m not the […]

From the opening chapters of Tochi Onyebuchi’s novel, ‘War Girls’, you wouldn’t think there was a civil war going on between the Nigerians and Biafrans in 2172.

The SHADO Imperative: an article by: GF Willmetts.

Journey Through Utopia by Marie Louise Berneri (book review).

Until this book, ‘Journey Through Utopia, I had never heard of Marie Louise Berneri (1919-1949). She died at 30 from a blood infection after giving birth to a still-born child. She was also an anarchist activist and reporter, although back in early part of the 20th century it wasn’t seen quite as oddly as we […]

The Predator (2018) (DVD film review).
