Shi: A Dark Adventure Into Living Forever (Immortality Interrupted book 1) by C.F. Villion (book review).

‘Shi: A Dark Adventure Into Living Forever’ by C.F. Villion is the first in the ‘Immortality Interrupted’ series which is currently a three book series. I’d call it a trilogy, but I don’t know how the third book ends so there could be more and there is a 32 page short story which is numbered […]

Before Mars (Planetfall 3) by Emma Newman (book review).

In the third of her ‘Planetfall’ books, Emma Newman returns to a loosely-related setting in ‘Before Mars’, a book with the same background but this time set on Mars several years after the departure of the colonists who feature in ‘Planetfall’. Just as in the first book, the setting and plot are intriguing but once […]

The Sentient Machine by Amir Husain (book review).

Amir Husain’s book, ‘The Sentient Machine’, provides more information from its sub-titles, ‘The Coming Age Of Artificial Intelligence’ and ‘What Is The Future For Humanity In A World Dominated By Machines?’ I think in this instance, the shorter title works better. From the algorithms that point things to us, let alone the new AIs who […]

Star*Reach Companion by Richard Arndt (book review).

If there’s any gap in my comicbook knowledge then it is with Mike Friedrich’s 30 issue ‘Star*Reach’ anthology comic series. If memory serves, I think I only ever saw a couple issues in the UK and that was far down the numbers. As I didn’t know it was an anthology, it seemed a bit late […]

The Joe Shuster Story: The Artist Behind Superman by Julian Voloj and Thomas Campi (book review).

What better way to tell the story of Superman’s creation than in graphic novel form? That’s what Papercutz have done with a script by Julian Voloj and lovely, simple art by Thomas Campi. ‘The Joe Shuster Story’ starts with Shuster as an old man sleeping on a park bench and being woken up by a […]

Reign of Iron (The Iron Age Trilogy book 3) by Angus Watson (book review).

‘Reign Of Iron’ is the third and final part of Angus Watson’s ‘Age Of Iron trilogy’, a blood and guts soaked fantasy series set some 45 years before the son of a carpenter decided making cupboards wasn’t for him and decided to be the Son of God instead. This is a crucial point in British […]

Clash Of Iron (The Iron Age Trilogy book 2) by Angus Watson (book review).

It’s a weird thing seeing something you wrote quoted in the blurb for a book, even if not attributed to me and just ‘SFCrowsnest’ it’s still gives one a tiny thrill. The book in question is ‘Clash Of Iron’ the second in the ‘Age Of Iron trilogy’ by Angus Watson. The quote came from my […]

The Religion Of Science Fiction by Frederick A. Kreuziger (book review).

Two things that surprised me most about Frederick A. Kreuziger’s book, ‘The Religion Of Science Fiction’. Although printed in 1986, you can still get first hand copies of the book. Either it hasn’t sold well or it’s had a bigger print run than anticipated. Of course, it might just be a title containing ‘religion’ that […]

The Lost Fleet: Beyond The Frontier: Guardian by Jack Campbell (book review).

The original series comprises of six volumes charting the heroic ‘Jack Black’ and his exploits in trying to lead the remains of the Alliance fleet back to safety after being ambushed by the Syndicate World’s own fleet.
