The Formula by Don Viecelli (ebook review).

The Formula’ by Don Viecelli is described as a ‘suspense thriller that starts with a brutal murder on Ares, a large space station orbiting Mars in the year 2094’. It sounds ideal for me as I do like a good Science Fiction thriller. Two scientists, a father and daughter, have discovered a drug which reverses […]

Fahrenheit 451 (TV trailer).

Here’s the new trailer for the TV series based on the Fahrenheit 451 book. Very well done, as you would expect from HBO. Some powerful dialogue. “We are not born equal. We must be made equal by the fire … and then we can be happy.” Complete with scary Alexa-like machines in every household feeding you […]

Infini (film trailer).

Here’s the trailer for Infini, which has actor Luke Hemsworth as the team leader of a military search and rescue unit which has to visit an off-world mining-facility to rescue someone called Whit Carmichael, the lone survivor of a “biological” outbreak. Another bug hunt which won’t be paying licence fees to the Aliens franchise, then. […]

It’s not easy reviewing a weekly comic! The next one arrives before you draw breath from the last one and you have to go again. Here’s a quick update on the stories in this issue. Some are on-going and a couple are one-shots. ‘Judge Dredd: The Death Watch’ is a one shot. The Chronos 5000, […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jan/Feb 2018, Volume 134 #735.

The trouble with reviewing genre magazines is that they come out as regularly as clockwork, whether or not you’ve finished reading the previous issue. The March/April 2018 issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ is already staring at me from the top of my ‘To Be Read’ pile, so I should really get […]

Recursion by Aditya (ebook review).

‘Recursion’ by Aditya is a short book containing 9 stories and poems that are very loosely connected and brought together in the final story in the book. There are some philosophical ideas that permeate the collection and, in places, it definitely feels like a thought exercise rather than a fully-fledged story collection. Unfortunately, while the […]

Outposts Of Beyond April 2018 (ebook review).

I bought this issue because it contains a story by Mike Morgan and an interview with him. I’ve enjoyed a few of his yarns in the past. Happily, there is some other good stuff, too. ‘A Prophecy And The People’ by Beth Powers is a fantasy that plays with the usual tropes. The Bard is […]
