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 […]

Tales From The Graveyard: A North Bristol Writers Anthology by Peter Sutton and Eric Nash (book review).

Lurking in the media shadows behind the bright lights of Hollywood and the bestsellers vying for your attention are little books put out by small presses and local authors. Their zero marketing budget means they often go undeservedly unnoticed. One such tome is ‘Tales From The Graveyard’, an anthology of spooky stories from some writers […]

Doctor Who: Scratchman by Tom Baker (book review).

Inside the cover of ‘Scratchman’, it adds James Goss as the co-author of this book years in the making. As my additional press release material tells me, the idea was originally a hot project in the years Tom Baker was playing the Doctor and it has finally come to fruition in the year of his […]

A Quick Bite (Argeneau Family) by Lynsay Sands (book review).

A series of books, especially a long one (the 29th is due to be published this month) has to start somewhere. ‘A Quick Bite’ is touted as the first in the series. It is not the first to be published, it was the fourth. Writing books out of order presents problems. The first one is […]
