The Problem With Fantasy: an article and story by GF Willmetts.

I might have mentioned in passing over the years that I don’t particularly like fantasy, mostly because it’s so easy to cheat and not explain how things are the way they are.

CTRL+S by Andy Briggs (book review).

In many respects, Andy Briggs’ book, ‘CTRL+S’, is an extension and a possible future of our reality.

The major difference is […]

As with all of this series of books, there are extensive interviews detailing the artist in question’s early life and love of art, […]

Shazam! (2019) (blu-ray film review).

I have to confess the three beginnings don’t make a lot of sense because no one is identified. The first choice by Shazam the wizard (actor Djimon Hounsou) doesn’t appear to be pure of heart. The young Billy Batson gets lost in a crowd at the fun fair when young and brought up in an […]

Build Your Own Gaming PC by Adam Barnes (book review).

Although I’m not sure if I’ll ever custom-build a games computer, I have modified every desktop computer I’ve owned with videocards, modems and RAM so it’s not as though I wouldn’t have some background knowledge of matching specifications and making things work. I’m also aware of the problems a single component failure can have repercussions […]
