Lost Acre: Rotherweird book 3 by Andrew Caldecott (book review).

‘Lost Acre’ is the third instalment in the world of ‘Rotherweird’. Given separate status by Elizabeth the First, after a series of terrible events, it remains relatively untouched by the modern world. Not dominated by Instagram or Twitter, trolls it is a quaint little town and a little bit of countryside where children play outside […]

Outgrowing God: A Beginner’s Guide by Richard Dawkins (book review).

With a title like ‘Outgrowing God: A Beginner’s Guide’, you know what to expect from a book by Richard Dawkins. There’s a lot here that I already knew and have told you independently over the years. Dawkins puts them down in more black and white terms and really warms up in the second chapter. If […]

Elevation by Stephen King (book review).

To the general public, Stephen King is a writer of horror novels like ‘Carrie’, ‘The Shining’ and ‘It’, each of which has subsequently reached a much larger audience via film and television. Readers of SFCrowsnest will, I trust, be much more aware of the huge volume and variety of King’s work, which ranges well beyond […]

The Devil’s Evidence: Thomas Fool book 1 by Simon Kurt Unsworth (book review).

No one knows why they have been assigned to Hell, no one knows if they will ever be released to Heaven. It’s the hope that kills you, over and over again. ‘The Devil’s Detective ‘is something different and the first of two books about a resident of Hell assigned to investigating crimes of violence against […]

Eternity: Wing And Pray by Leon M.A. Edwards (book review).

‘Eternity: Wing And Pray’ by Leon M.A. Edwards arrived in my inbox with very little fanfare which is probably just as well. In the acknowledgement at the front of the book the author thanks God for giving him the confidence to start writing and the ability to write a story so we can probably surmise […]

TV Noir: Dark Drama On The Small Screen by Allen Glover (book review).

Everyone here has probably heard of Film Noir, the dramatised dark underbelly of the world we live in. It got its name largely because as the reverse of the light and gay (the old meaning of happy) fantasy highlife as depicted in many films of that period. Film Noir filmed in the gap for those […]

The Land Of Somewhere Safe by Hal Duncan  (book review)

‘The Land Of Somewhere Safe’ is also known as the Land of Nod. It’s where Keen and Able went, for Keen didn’t really kill Able as the groanhuffs have it in their book. No. ‘Keen rewrote Able out of reality, into this hideyhole playground. And went in after him, to the land where every scruff […]

Wanderers by Chuck Wendig (book review).

Some books remind us how small we are or how transient life is and as a result make you want to find someone important to you and give them a hug. ‘Wanderers’ by Chuck Wendig also does this but you’ll make damn sure you wash your hands straight afterwards. Jumping between a large cast of […]
