Black Mirror: The Complete Fourth Series (DVD SF TV series review).

Be warned, the first episode is 75 minutes long although it’s pretty misleading when 125 minutes popped up on the screen and there is no division times between the two episodes per disk. ‘USS Callister’ seems to be a ‘Star Trek’ spin until it is revealed that its captain, Robert Daly (actor Jesse Plemons) is […]

There’s a steampunk animated film coming this Xmas (December 25th 2020), Poupelle of Chimney Town, based on the best-selling (in Japan, at any rate) children’s picture book by Japanese comedian Akihiro Nishino. Poupelle? Sounds like what Santa might do down a chimney if he’s caught short on the job. The film looks interesting, but the […]

Fantastic Science-Fiction Art: 1926-1954 by Lester Del Rey (book review).

For those of you wanting to complete your SF cover art collection, Lester Del Rey’s 1975 book, ‘Fantastic Science-Fiction Art: 1926-1954’, is still out there and I was surprised how reasonably easy it was to get a mint copy. I say ‘reasonably’ simply because reviewing a copy here might reduce the number of copies available. […]

Penultiman #1 by Tom Peyer and Alan Robinson (e-comicbook review).

Penultiman originally appeared in the one-shot anthology, ‘Steel Cage’, which the publishers Ahoy Comics have handily placed on-line for free although you now have to pay via its Amazon connection. However, you don’t desperately need to read it before taking on # 1 because it lays everything about the character out extremely clearly and, spoiler […]
