Space Patrol: The Complete Series (1962-63)  (Blu-ray TV series review)

  It was a big surprise spotting I nearly missed ‘Space Patrol’ was being released earlier in the year on blu-ray. Back in the 1960s, it was the only other space age puppet show other than the Andersons Century 21 company, although it was a breakaway from that led by Arthur Provis when creator Roberta […]

Godblind :Tome 1 by Anna Stephens   (book review)

Unlike the Americans, we British only really came across Elvira originally in this film and the Marvel magazine, so we didn’t know much about her other […]

‘The Boost’, title and product of Stephen Baker’s book, is a neural link embedded in people’s skulls, allowing them to interface with a futuristic Internet and request information and share photos. Although written in 2014, not much different to what some of you have on your smartphones today. However, the upcoming latest world-wide upgrade due […]

Your Place In The Universe by Paul M. Sutter (book review).

Firstly, Paul M. Sutter’s book, ‘Your Place In The Universe’, is not a look at the house where you live or even your neighbourhood. Well, not exactly. What Sutter has done is combined science and cosmos with the history of how mankind slowly worked things out in a friendly manner that you will be surprised […]

Typeset In The Future: Typography And Design In Science Fiction Movies by Dave Addey (book review).

Very occasionally I can have a ‘Oh my god’ moment as if deities exist. Looking at the title, ‘Typeset In The Future: Typography And Design In Science Fiction Movies’, it’s pretty obvious that author Dave Addey is going to be looking at various films and be telling you about the various fonts that were used.
