Seven Days: The Complete Series (DVD boxset review).

It’s hard to believe that these three seasons of ‘Seven Days’ were from 1998-2001, let alone that it took so long for a DVD boxset to be released and then stupidly only region 1 and the long river website unable to deliver it abroad. It took a few years and a bit of luck to […]

Space Above and Beyond retrospective (video).

Rowan J Coleman brings us a little Space Above and Beyond retrospective via the magic of the streaming tubes. This is one science fiction TV series I enjoyed loads, too, although it seemed very spotty scheduling here in the UK as I recall (this was back in the day when we relied on video recorders).

Archive (science fiction film: review).

Here’s a trailer for the new science fiction film Archive, by Director Gavin Rothery – it’s the year 2038: and scientist George Almore is working on a true human-equivalent AI. His latest prototype is almost ready. This sensitive phase is also the riskiest … especially as he has a goal that must be hidden at […]

StoryHack Action & Adventure Issue 6 – Kindle Edition (emag review).

Here be stories. ‘Rakes And The Pirates Of Malabar’ is by Mike Adamson, whose stuff I’ve read before and like, especially his novella ‘Last Train To Deakin Valley’. Here, he’s in pulp mode with a ripping yarn set in 19th century India. Edgar Quincannon Rakes is a former soldier heading back to England but, having […]

Bloodshot (2020) (dvd film review).

Well, let’s be honest I enjoyed this film ‘Bloodshot’. It might upset a few people as it seems to pull in bits from a lot of other major SF films that have aired in the last 20 years. Perhaps longer, but it is an enjoyable action film nevertheless. It might even get to be regarded […]

Dark Orbit by Carolyn Ives Gilman (book review).

It’s difficult to come up with a truly original and unique human society in which to set your story. Even when writing about other planets and other times, we tend to end up with societies that have some basis in current or past human cultures. Authors who invent new alien species can often have more […]

The Oppenheimer Alternative by Robert J. Sawyer (book review).

Robert Sawyer is finally back writing. Yah! Oddly, his subject matter is Robert Oppenheimer and the build-up of his latest book, ‘The Oppenheimer Alternative’, uses Los Alamos and the Manhattan Project as his starting point before another catastrophe rears its head. The pivotal change is after the nuclear bombing of two Japanese cities and their […]

Bards And Sages Quarterly, April 2020 (e-magazine review).

‘Bards And Sages Quarterly’ is a small press speculative fiction magazine that publishes stories up to 5000 words in a variety of genres and styles and pays a fistful of dollars to writers. Only a small fistful but it’s all welcome and no one does short stories for the money. These are some works that […]
