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 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.

Futuropolis by Robert Sheckley (book review).

Futuropolis by Robert Sheckley (book review).

I pulled a copy of Robert Sheckley’s ‘Futuropolis’ because I missed it the first time around in the early 1980s and finding it on-line is easier than bookshop hunting in its day. For those who don’t know, Robert Sheckley (1928-2005) was a popular American SF author that I came across originally with his quirky ‘Mindswap’ […]

Space Helmet For A Cow – The Mad, True Story Of Doctor Who – Volume 2: 1990-2013 by Paul Kirkley (book review).

Space Helmet For A Cow – The Mad, True Story Of Doctor Who – Volume 2: 1990-2013 by Paul Kirkley (book review).

The return of ‘Doctor Who’ is in many ways a remarkable thing. Today, it’s tempting to forget just how unlikely the show’s comeback once was, given the false-start with Paul McGann and the 1996 TV movie. The wilderness years, followed by the magnificent re-launch in 2005 is the subject of Paul Kirkley’s excellent ‘Space Helmet […]

Out Of This World: Science Fiction But Not As We Know It by Mike Ashley (book review).

I wasn’t really sure what to make of Mike Ashley’s book, ‘Out Of This World: Science Fiction But Not As We Know It’, when I bought a copy last year. I mean, SF is already a subject we know something about so what don’t we know? Over the six sections, Ashley looks at the origins […]

Running Through Corridors – Volume 1: The 60s by Robert Shearman and Toby Hadoke (book review).

‘Running Through Corridors: Volume 1: The 60s’ is the first volume of Rob Shearman and Toby Hadoke’s correspondence as they attempt to watch and listen to all of ‘Doctor Who’ from start to finish. As expected, this book covers both William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton’s stories as the series emerges in late 1963 with ‘An […]

Stranger Fillings by The Muffin Brothers (book review).

I hope you appreciate the effort your reviewer has gone to by watching two seasons of ‘Stranger Things’ simply to understand the recipes made available in this book. I can tell you do. The Muffin Brothers have produced a book for the themed party and, although I’ll probably never cook the recipes, I’m grateful for […]
