Last year’s Martian thriller ‘One Way’ introduced us to Frank Kittridge, a convicted murderer who was offered a one-way ticket to Mars as part of an all-convict crew who would build a base for NASA’s astronauts to use in the future. It didn’t seem such a bad deal, it would just mean Frank serving out […]

Universe: From 13.8 Billion Years Ago To The Infinite Future Owners’ Workshop Manual by David M. Harland (book review).

There’s always a question of just how big can the Haynes books get? I guess David M. Harland’s book, ‘Universe: From 13.8 Billion Years Ago To The Infinite Future Owners’ Workshop Manual’, says all the way to the top.

The Rosewater Insurrection by Tade Thompson (book review).

It’s with a little trepidation that I approach ‘The Rosewater Insurrection’ by Tade Thompson.

On one hand I’m please as the publisher is saying […]

Although seeing the early strips here, he doesn’t always smile. It’s explained in this […]

Higgs & Soap: Galaxy Delivery: Vol. 1 by Tony Cooper (book review).

Writing humour is very difficult as the audience for it is very variable. Not everyone appreciates the same kind of humour so tailoring it to a particular readership is an almost impossible task. As a result, it is best written for an audience of one, the author. With luck, there will also be others who […]

In horror films, a common trope is to have a group of youngsters in a situation where they will be slaughtered one at a time by a maniac or a supernatural being, usually bloodily. The last scene is often of the last of the group fleeing the site of the carnage with the ambiguousness of […]
