Future Science Fiction Digest Issue 3 (e-magazine review).

‘Future Science Fiction Digest’ is still going (hooray!) and the third issue is out now. The non-fiction feature is an interesting interview with Dorothy Fontana of ‘Star Trek’ fame but I’ll focus on the fiction. There are two themes herein: the Moon and AI. There are also dogs. The Moon, AI and dog themes are […]

Retro Fan #5 Summer 2019 (magazine review).

As the cover of the fifth issue of ‘Retro Fan’ shows, they have an extensive interview with actor Mark Hamill. Interviewer Glenn Greenberg was interviewing Hamill along with animator Dave Filoni and production designer Doug Chiang and much of what Hamill said was cut to fit in the time slot. So nothing was lost, Greenberg […]

Illustrators #26 (magazine review).

As I’m often said in the past, I look forward to every edition of ‘Illustrators’ and there is no exception with the 26th issue with a mixture of period art and cartoon illustrating. Even enough contrast to keep everyone happy. The opening artist is John Millar-Watt (1895-1975) who could turn his hand to any medium. […]

Black Static #29 Jul-Aug 2012 (magazine review).

There are some who will wonder if there is any point in reviewing a magazine at this distance from the publication date. In the case of some that would be a fair comment as the contents date rapidly but in the case of anything that contains fiction stories can remain current. There are collectors of […]

Jack Kirby Collector Seventy-Six (magazine review).

The 76th issue of the ‘Jack Kirby Collector’ opens with editor John Morrow correcting wrong impressions some have gleaned from the 75th issue, ‘Stuf’ Said’ in which he chronicled the creation of Marvel Comics. The Internet is now awash with anti-Stan Lee comments based on his work. Morrow is not anti-Lee just pro-Kirby. It’s a […]

On Spec: The Canadian Magazine Of The Fantastic vol. 29 no. 3-4 #110 (magazine review).

Oddly, the folks at ‘On Spec’ have decided to combine two issues into one, an experiment. Apart from the double length, it’s the usual mix of fantasy and Science Fiction with a few editorials, articles, flash fiction bits and poems thrown in. I’ll pick out my personal favourites. Among the features is an extract from […]

Back Issue #112 June 2019 (magazine review).

In a weird quirk of fate, I had Back Issue # 113 a few days before # 112. The problem with faulty time travel machines. As you can tell from the cover, the opening piece focuses on the Gerry Conway/Al Milgrom created character Firestorm. There are interviews with them and practically most of the other […]

I’ll review a selection of the pieces, starting with the longest item, the fantasy novella ‘The City Of Lost Desire’. This is Phyllis Eisenstein’s latest outing […]

The latest issue of ‘Alter Ego’ focuses on writer William Woolfolk. He worked not only on the original Captain Marvel but was prolific on other comicbooks as well. His original intension was as a novel writer but when fellow writer Seymour Reit, whom he thought had sold out to writing comics, pointed out he was […]

Back Issue #113 July 2019 (magazine review).

You know how it is. A new issue of ‘Back Issue’ arrives, ahead of # 112 which arrived a couple days later, and instead of just reading the opening article, I ended up reading 20 pages in my first sitting. As the cover shows, this issue covers the 1989 ‘Batman’ film and it’s hard to […]
