3 Of A Perfekt Pear by Daniel C. Smith (ebook review).

This little book contains three stories by Daniel C. Smith, all of which were first published in ‘The Fifth Di…’. Nomadic Delirium Press has an enlightened policy of putting out these one author collections so that readers who like the writer can garner a bunch of his stuff cheap. I like Daniel C. Smith. As […]

After Atlas (Planetfall book 2) by Emma Newman (book review).

‘Planetfall’ was a fabulously engaging novel of deep characterisation and otherworldy intrigue that left me highly impressed. ‘After Atlas’ and ‘Before Mars’ are both dubbed as ‘Planetfall’ novels, as they are set in the same universe, but the stories are seemingly unconnected other than a shared background and references to the departure of Atlas, the […]

The Tulku Of Titan And The Terror Of Titan by Mike Morgan (ebook review).

‘The Tulku Of Titan And The Terror Of Titan’ is a short book so I won’t have a lot to say. I picked it up because I have read and enjoyed Mike Morgan’s stories in various magazines. This batch of two stories was put out by Nomadic Delirium Press, who bundle up works previously published […]

Out In The Open by Jesús Carrasco and Javi Rey (graphic novel review).

My girlfriend wouldn’t have got past page one, the hanging dog. I mention this because if you’re the sort of person that wouldn’t get past page one you’ll regret buying the book and I don’t want to mislead anyone. If you’re not fazed by that and worse then it’s a good read about finding some […]

Forever And A Day by Anthony Horowitz (book review).

After crafting a ‘sequel’ to Ian Fleming’s ‘Goldfinger’ (see more at https://www.sfcrowsnest.info/trigger-mortis-by-anthony-horowitz-book-review/), Anthony Horowitz continues to extend the literary Bond universe with a prequel to Bond’s first literary outing ‘Casino Royale’. The pleasures promised by ‘Forever And A Day’ are, aside from the usual heady mix of sex, sadism and sensory overload, in seeing how […]

The Last Sun (The Tarot Sequence book #1) by K.D. Edwards (book review).

‘The Last Sun’ by K.D. Edwards is one of the most entertaining books I’ve read this year. It’s funny, exciting and heartwarming. I have an iffy relationship with Urban Fantasy, but decided to pick this one up based on the characters and the premise. Both delivered. Briefly, Rune Saint John is ‘the last Sun’, the […]

Dawn In Damnation by Clark Casey (book review).

Dawn In Damnation by Clark Casey (book review).

‘Dawn In Damnation’ by Clark Casey is a real page-turner of a western. Written in a down-to-earth style, it grabs your interest from page one. Initially, I was curious to see how the idea would play out. There is not excessive gore or an over-emphasis of the paranormal nature of the story. This is written […]

Grumman F-14 Tomcat: All Models 1970-2006 Owners’ Workshop Manual by Tony Holmes (book review).

Although reference is given to the film ‘Top Gun’ to the US Navy’s jet, the F-14 Tomcat, it isn’t a film I’ve seen that got me interested in the aircraft. Instead it was watching the 1980 SF film, ‘The Final Countdown’ which struck me with their use on the USS Nimitz as the aircraft carrier […]
