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 […]

Snapshot by Brandon Sanderson (book review).

I’m used to passing Brandon Sanderson’s massive tomes and was surprised when practically the novella-sized, ‘Snapshot’, passed into my hands. At least I can say I’ve read one of Brandon Sanderson’s novels. Although the process isn’t explained, a virtual reality snapshot is made of part of the city and police detectives Davis and Chaz are […]

Laddertop Books 1-2 by Orson Scott Card, Emily Janice Card and illustrated by Honoel A. Ibardolaza (graphic novel review).

At the same time as this reviewer was working his way through ‘Laddertop’, the British digital channel ‘Film On Four’ was holding a ‘Studio Ghibli’ season.

Historically, that’s also […]

There are characters called Dariox Vinyl, Pique Rollins, Spiro de Yerusalom and Veriton Glass. Some of these […]

‘Hello, Mary.’ ‘Hello, Jane.’ ‘How do I look?’ ‘You’ve grown a little.’ ‘I haven’t seen you a few years. Do you remember a friend of mine, Polly Kettle?’ ‘Polly Kettle?’ <<She taught me a mental trick. Can you still hear me?>> ‘Yes.’ It had taken three days to get that far. The opening lesson had […]

Were The Village And Children Really Damned?: an enquiry by: GF Willmetts.

According to the evidence as collected by John Wyndham Beynon Harris and John Briley, it wasn’t just the village of Midwich but five other villages across the world that suffered blackouts and all females capable of becoming pregnant.
