Illustrators Special #5: The Art Of Commando (book review).

As ‘Commando’ magazine’s editor-in-chief/general Alexandria Turner points out in the introduction, people don’t realise that this A5 war magazine is still going strong after 58 years with over 4,000 issues and in several other formats as well. Although this is slightly different to our normal remit, you can’t deny the art is interesting and publisher […]

The Art Of Frozen II by Jessica Julius (book review).

In many respects as I was reading Jessica Julius’ book, ‘The Art Of Frozen II’, I wondered as it was based in the autumn, perhaps it had the wrong title or at least could do with a sub-title. Interestingly, in the text the film is referred to as ‘Frozen 2’ but not on the cover. […]

Retrospective: The Woman in the Moon (Die Frau Im Mond) (1929).

In July TCM celebrated the 50th anniversary of humans first landing on the moon. They chose to run the rarely seen The Woman in the Moon (Die Frau Im Mond). This was the first science fiction film to try to be serious and accurate in depicting celestial travel. While it is not too hard to […]

No Time To Die (James Bond spy-fy movie trailer).

In the new spy-fy flick No Time To Die, James Bond has departed from the dangerous fields of active service and is enjoying a tranquil retirement in Jamaica (maybe his liver is still in danger from all that rum). His peace is short-lived, however, when his old chum CIA boss Felix Leiter CIA turns up […]

Marvel’s Black Widow (superhero movie: first trailer).

The Black Widow is going back to Russia for a reunion with her family in the much anticipated Black Widow film from Marvel Studios – and hey, her dad looks a lot like that Deputy bloke from Stranger Things. Just don’t tell her that she dies in the future, sob! Arriving in the cinema on […]

War Of The Worlds: an appraisal of the third episode of the BBC’s 2019 new series (TV review).

These Martians are carnivorous, even if they do turn you into a soup to eat you. Even so, travelling from Mars to Earth for a snack, living off the remnants of mankind seems an odd way to go. You would think they would need more people alive than simply cutting them down. If they were […]

Mind Games  or Scobie In WonderMirrorOzland : a Psi-Kicks story by: GF Willmetts

A road of gold. A city of verdigris. A nearby forest. Flanolla Scobie thought she was in Wonderland and looked around for the white rabbit. At least she thought it was that rabbit. It could even be a talking lion who could turn biped. Why did he never trip up on his tail? So much […]

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. Any fantasy novel or even other media source that can explain its reality in a satisfactory way rather than rely on ‘magic’ and […]

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. It doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to out the correct name to various things we see today. What Briggs has done is do the standard SF practice of taking it to extreme. The major difference is […]
