Samurai Warrior Operations Manual by Chris McNab (book review).

I did wonder when I selected Chris McNab’s book, ‘Samurai Warrior Operations Manual’, as to whether it fell without our remit. As I read, I saw pointers to the Minbari in ‘Babylon 5’ and, of course, the recent ‘Westworld’ TV series visited the time period. So, yeah, we should be interested in the real thing. […]

Nick Fury, Agent Of SHIELD: Who Is Scorpio? by Steranko & Co. (graphic novel review).

Oddly, I though the sequel to ‘Nick Fury, Agent Of SHIELD’ wasn’t available or out of print or not even out there and then the long river website’s algorithm popped it up and indicated very few copies left. It then became a panic buy just in case some of you lucky folk out there beat […]

Forensic Speak: How To Write Realistic Crime Dramas by Jennifer Dornbush (book review).

Always be a little careful about what you wish for. I was having an e-yap with Ken Lee over at Michael Wiese Productions on how British crime and medical shows have their key cast and scriptwriters given some time in the real world to observe how the real people do their jobs and have technical […]

Nick Fury, Agent Of SHIELD by Steranko & Co. (graphic novel review).

Although I own some of the Steranko original run of ‘Nick Fury, Agent Of SHIELD’ from the comicbook ‘Strange Tales’ back in the late 1960s, I don’t have all of his early issues and saw this graphic novel as a chance to fulfil something that should be on my bucket list. Although this volume came […]

The History Of Espionage: The Secret World Of Spycraft, Sabotage And Post-Truth Propaganda by Ernest Volkman (book review).

Don’t start reading ‘The History Of Espionage: The Secret World Of Spycraft, Sabotage And Post-Truth Propaganda’ by Ernest Volkman as if it’s going to be a straightforward history of espionage looking at individual secret services. What Volkman has done is taken various strands of interest, like conflicts and wars, and see how it progresses through […]

Tall, Dark And Hungry (Argeneau Family book 4) by Lynsay Sands (book review).

It is widely accepted that there is a section of readers who, having found a genre they like, demand more of the same. It is part of reason why Mills & Boon has been and still is such a success. Not all their novels have coy, virginal and idealistic heroines as the books have been […]
