Single White Vampire (Argeneau Family book 1 or 3?) by Lynsay Sands (book review).

Genesis by Geoffrey Carr (book review).

I actually bought this book at Eastercon, at a launch party put on by Elsewhen Press. When I started reading it I thought I’m glad I don’t have to review this book as I’m not really the right person for it! Because it was clear at once, even from the cover with a green hand […]

The Case For Space by Robert Zubrin (book review).

It’s rather interesting reading author Robert Zubrin’s biographic notes. He’s president of Pioneer Astronautics, president of the Mars Society and a former senior engineer for Lockheed Martin. His book, ‘The Case For Space’, is an examination of the commercial companies who are now getting into space. The initial focus is on Eon Musk and answers […]

Hurricane: Hive Mind 3: by Janet Edwards (book review).

When the fans clamour for the next book before it can be scheduled by a mainstream publisher and an author writes faster than the big publishers can cope with, it makes sense to independently publish the books. For a newcomer to the writing business this could be a dangerous move but, when the quality is […]

So many novels incorporating supernatural elements tend to tread the same path by having their mythical creatures following in the footsteps of humans and migrating to cities. It is refreshing then to find the action almost entirely encompassing the wilds of America, in this case Yellowstone National Park. The focus for this set of novels, […]
