Heroes Of The Space Age by Rod Pyle (book review).

Author Rod Pyle explains in his introduction to his latest book, ‘Heroes Of The Space Age’, that the real problem was who to leave out and that whoever he chose would disappoint others. So one of the criterias he applies is having some diversity so they would necessarily have similar backgrounds. As such, you have […]

Morhelion (The Long Game book 2) by Dominic Dulley (book review).

‘Morhelion’ follows on from Dominic Dulley’s debut novel, the breezy space opera adventure ‘Shattermoon’, bringing back the roguish and mismatched crew of the Dainty Jane to mix it up with a new batch of criminal gangs, opportunists, charming conmen and villainous authority figures. Grifter Orry, her younger brother Ethan and grizzled veteran Mender are once […]

Beyond Human: Living With Robots And Cyborgs by Gregory Benford and Elisabeth Malartre (book review).

I bought ‘Beyond Human: Living With Robots And Cyborgs’ by Gregory Benford and Elizabeth Malartre several years back and with a bit of a lull now, have gotten into reading it. The title of the book clearly gives away the subject matter as it explores our reality and how cybernetic technology is rebuilding us. Although […]

The Apollo Missions In The Astronauts’ Own Words by Rod Pyle (book review).

Rod Pyle seems to be involved in a lot with space books this year. This one, ‘The Apollo Missions In The Astronauts’ Own Words’, unlike the others is closer to being a photo album with some rare photographs, making it a decent companion piece to them. Pyle gives information about the missions interspersed with dialogue […]

Terror Tales Of Cornwall edited by Paul Finch (book review).

‘Terror Tales Of Cornwall’ is the perfect title for a book of new horror stories based in England’s most south-westerly county. The modern stories are interspersed with two or three-page essays about real legends of Cornwall. These are informative and add an extra dimension to the book. In the contents page and the text, they […]

The Worse-Case Scenario Survival Handbook by Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht (book review).

Now here’s a book that should be on every writer’s shelves although I doubt if it would stay there for long because it’s a research medium for survival so practically everyone needs it for those hazardous situations. Writers Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht have talked to 68 consultants and several sources for expert opinions for […]

Atlas Alone (Planetfall 4) by Emma Newman (book review).

‘Atlas Alone’ is the fourth novel set in Emma Newman’s ‘Planetfall’ universe, all of which I have enjoyed and found to be engaging and emotionally charged, with wonderfully complex characters and an intriguing background. Each of the first three novels stands alone and could be read in any order, but this book follows on directly […]

NASA Missions AS-506: Apollo 11 Owners’ Workshop Manual 1969-2019 by Christopher Riley and Phil Dolling (book review).

This is the 10th reprint of ‘NASA Missions AS-506: Apollo 11 Owners’ Workshop Manual 1969-2019’ by Christopher Riley and Phil Dolling and I reviewed the original release back in 2009. There are a few more pages so I’ll focus on them, especially as it focuses on the future of Man on the Moon. These are […]

The Wisdom Of Wonder Woman by Signe Bergstrom (book review).

Looking at the title, ‘The Wisdom Of Wonder Woman’, Signe Bergstrom has brought together dialogue from across the history of the most famous Amazon in comicbooks, touching on the TV series and recent film. Each alternative page has a piece of art from the comicbooks and you can play a game of spotting who drew […]
