Zombies At Tiffany’s by Sam Stone (book review).

‘Zombies At Tiffany’s’ is a horror novella set in New York in 1862, during the American Civil War. It comes from the pen of British horror writer Sam Stone, whose short story collection ‘Zombies In New York And Other Bloody Jottings’ I reviewed here back in January. The story follows Katherine ‘Kat’ Lightfoot, an eighteen […]

The Paranormal by Erich Goode (book review).

Erich Goode’s book, ‘The Paranormal’, has the sub-title ‘Who Believes Why They Believe And Why It Matters’. The comma is missing on the cover but has two in the indice inside to make up for it. The title should give a clue as to the book’s subject matter. Sensibly, Goode explains the scientific rationales of […]

The Dark Heroine: Dinner With A Vampire by Abigail Gibbs (book review).

This could very well be the first in a series of books about the dark heroines of the title, however, it’s not entirely clear from this book. There is a second novel mentioned on Amazon but it doesn’t really tell you much about it. This novel seems to mostly be about a young human called […]

The Barry Newbery Signature Collection (book review).

Despite the unusual size, this is a somewhat unique book and a sure winner for any ‘Doctor Who’ fan. Barry Newbery was the first set designer on the series and worked on fourteen stories which spanned Hartnell (8), Troughton (1), Pertwee (1), Tom Baker (3) and Davison (1). Oddly, the sections aren’t in ‘Who’ order […]

Star Wars Art: Illustration by 41 artists (book review).

This ‘Star Wars’ book is exactly what it says on the box: Illustrations, although the title has that in the singular. Apart from a forward by Howard Roffman, President of Lucas Licensing, explaining how back in the late 80s, he had to resurrect the franchise and an introduction by Steven Heller, co-chair of MFA Design, […]

The Elysium Commission by L.E. Modesitt Jr  (book review).

L.E. Modesitt, Jr is perhaps better known for his many fantasy novels, ‘The Saga Of Recluce’ above all, but he turns out a fair bit of Science Fiction, too. ‘The Elysium Commission’ falls into this category and is also a detective novel. Science Fiction detective novels are a venerable category going back to Isaac Asimov’s […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction Nov/Dec 2012 Volume 122 # 704 (magazine review).

The latest issue of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy And Science Fiction’ has the usual mix of ‘Departments’ and fiction. The former are interesting but this review will focus on the fiction in reverse order of length. The short stories first. I haven’t read Alan Dean Foster in a long time. A while back, in the […]
