I presume they mean the paper or celluloid variety but still some sort must still be going on over the Internet unless everything is going emoji and only […]

Fear the Furby organ?

A musical instrument made up of Furbys? Oh, the horror. The horror. Sam Battle made this living monstrosity. Possibly in return for some agreement with an other-dimensional entity written in blood on parchment. That’s some fearsome Furby fun going on right there.

Editorial – Feb 2018:  Look into the abyss and your motivations look back at you.

Hello everyone Motivation is a key part of any writer’s toolbox. It gives impetuous to the plot even at its most basic level of good versus evil. The characters might be doing one thing and be thrown into doing something different because of what is going on in the story. It is their drive that […]

Editorial – Aug 2017  :  Why Science Fiction isn’t keeping up?

Hello everyone Although I’ve been reading more non-fiction for review than current Science Fiction, something that has struck me is how little modern technology has filtered into it.

Editorial – July 2017: Should politics be the next SF frontier or has it beaten us there already?

Hello everyone Like with all my material, I have files for story, article and editorial ideas. These might be a brief idea or several paragraphs, left to percolate for a time for when it might be suitable to be used. Age can put an often different perspective on things.

Hello everyone Reading the latest TwoMorrows book ‘Hero-A-Go-Go!’ by Michael Eury about how camp the 1960s was, I couldn’t help wonder if I was either into it too much or didn’t recognise it as being as such. Granted I wasn’t even in my teens at that time and, in the UK, spoofing was a way […]

Against Doom: A Climate Insurgence Manual by Jeremy Brecher (book review).

If you have any interest in climate change but needed current data in your hands or even to pass the book to others to read then this easily qualifies. Some information can be inferred. Take the recent American presidential campaign […]
