Alter Ego #157 March 2019 (magazine review).

I always like it when editor Roy Thomas brings up a few surprises and the latest issue of ‘Alter Ego’ is that. The focus is on ‘Wonder Woman’. In the editorial, he points out the absence of the artist Harry ‘H.G.’ Peter from the credits in the latest ‘Wonder Woman’ film. Easily understood as he […]

Back Issue #67 September 2013 (magazine review).

I pulled ‘Back Issue # 67 September 2013’ last year for a look at two principle things which you’ll soon spot as you read this review. Anything else was purely a bonus. The theme of this ‘Back Issue’ is alternative realities with characters outside of their usual timelines. This also includes time travellers who also […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Nov/Dec 2018, Volume 135 #740 (magazine review).

After a rather hectic Christmas and New Year period, I’m finally catching up with writing reviews I started several weeks ago, including this one of the November/December 2018 copy of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy And Science Fiction’. This issue includes 4 novelettes, 7 short stories, a poem and the usual mix of non-fiction, as well […]

Jack Kirby Collector Seventy-Five: Kirby & Lee: Stuf’ Said!: The Complex Genesis Of The Marvel Universe (review).

The Jack Kirby Collector # 75 is a special book-sized issue entitled ‘Kirby And Lee: Stuf’ Said!’ It’s an attempt by publisher John Morrow to tell the history of the creation of Marvel Comics in their words, mostly, of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. There are lots of other words included, not least those of […]

Back Issue #110 February 2019 (magazine review).

The latest issue of ‘Back Issue’ has the sub-title ‘Make Mine Marvel’, so you should guess which company predominates. Interestingly, the first two articles centre on Carmine Infantino, outlining his history before focusing on his artwork at Marvel as he got his art mojo back after being fired as editor-in-chief at DC Comics. The second […]

Stupefying Stories # 22   (emag review)

There seem to be quite a lot of small press fantasy/Science Fiction/Horror (FSFH) magazines on the market these days. I should know, I co-edit one. I have to confess that I wasn’t aware of the existence of this particular example until author Ian Whates informed me that he had a story in the latest issue […]

On Spec The Canadian Magazine Of The Fantastic #109 Vol. 29 No. 2 (magazine review).

There’s some good fiction in this issue of ‘On Spec: The Canadian Magazine of the Fantastic’. ‘Sinkhole’ by Al Onia opens at Uluru, also known as Ayer’s Rock, where aborigine tourist guide Allan Balford witnesses something from the sky hit the sacred site and split it in two. The phenomenon then expands slowly and swallows […]

Retro Fan #3 Winter 2019 (magazine review).

As you can tell from the cover of Retro Fan # 3, the opening interview is with Richard Lester and even he’d lost count with how many decades since he directed ‘Superman’ movie. There’s also a few reveals that you might not have heard of before, including musical chairs with composers. I can’t recall ‘Kool-Aid’ […]

Future Science Fiction Digest # 1 by Alex Shvartsman, Mike Resnick, Lawrence M Schoen, Marina and Sergey Dyachenko, Clelia Farris, Walter Dinjos, Dantzel Cherry, Steve Kopka and Liang Ling (emag review).

‘Future Science Fiction Digest’ is a new quarterly magazine featuring translations of international Science Fiction. It’s an oddity of the genre that the subject matter ranges across the universe but most of the well-known works come from the English-speaking world. The rest of planet Earth likes Science Fiction, too, and even writes good examples of […]
