Gamer Nation by Eric Geissinger (book review).

With a title like ‘Gamer Nation’, author Eric Geissinger is more or less giving away the subject matter. The sub-title, ‘The Rise Of Modern Gaming And The Compulsion To Play Again’ means it doesn’t see the activity as being totally healthy. Oddly, I received this book at a time when I’d nearly completed the August […]

Lips Touch by Laini Taylor (book review).

‘Lips Touch’ is a bind-up of three novellas by Laini Taylor. They all take place in different worlds to each other and also to the worlds of Laini’s other books, but these short stories are all to do with kissing in its various forms. This is not only a set of beautiful stories, but there […]

Large Hadron Collider 2008 Onwards Owners’ Workshop Manual by Gemma Lavender (book review).
