Nuking The Moon by Vince Houghton  (book review)

The sub-title of Vince Houghton’s book, ‘Nuking The Moon’ is ‘And Other Intelligence Schemes And Military Plots Best Left On The Drawing Board’. That should point out that this isn’t some mad inventors dreaming up ideas, well, not all the time, but seeking a solution for a war-time problem, often with proper tests before some […]

Yearbook Of Astronomy: 2020 edited by Brian Jones  (book review)

As a little background information, ‘Yearbook Of Astronomy’ was edited by Patrick Moore for 52 consecutive years, until he died in 2012 in fact, by which time he was Sir Patrick and, for a while, it was called ‘Patrick Moore’s Yearbook Of Astronomy’. It was then edited by Dr. John Mason. As far as I […]

Back when I was really young, one of my career options because I was very good at biology at school was genetics. Reading Dr. Melita Irving’s book, ‘The Human DNA Manual: Understanding Your Genetic Code’ brought back a lot of my old knowledge and updating it to the current science that I already had some […]

Luna: Wolf Moon by Ian McDonald (book review).

The second volume of Ian McDonald’s ‘Luna’ trilogy follows on directly from the events of ‘New Moon’, chronicling the fallout from the tumultuous events of its conclusion and following the various family members from the Moon’s five major families. It seems to be a more thoughtful and considered book, less hectic than the first volume […]

The Andromeda Evolution by Michael Crichton and Daniel H. Wilson (book review).

Considering I reviewed ‘The Andromeda Strain’ film a couple months ago, I’ll assume you’ve watched it or acquired and read Michael Crichton’s book or both since then. ‘The Andromeda Evolution’ takes place 50 years later and the two alien variants, for want of a better name, AS-1 and the non-fatal AS-2 are still monitored for […]

Polaris Rising (The Consortium Rebellion Book 1) by Jessie Mihalik (book review).

Blending sexually charged romance with action, space travel, fashion and politics, ‘Polaris Rising’ is focused on the audience at the centre of a very specific Venn-diagram. While one of the interesting things about writing reviews for this site is being exposed to books that I wouldn’t normally read, I’m pretty certain that I’m not the […]

These now rule over themselves but still place those with troll heritage in the prominent families in society. But tensions are rising. A divide is growing and whoever is murdering trolls and […]
