Star Trek: Excelsior: Forged In Fire by Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels (book review).

If one was to use the latest ‘Star Trek’ film as a barometer, the character of Sulu isn’t up to much. In fact, there may be an argument that the ‘Original Series’ actor George Takei is much more interesting than his on-screen counterpart. Despite this, there is much love for Hikaru Sulu, he seemed to […]

Married with Zombies by Jesse Petersen (book review)

Our lead characters, Sarah and David, are on the cusp of a breakdown. They rarely communicate and when they do, it’s to argue. Their […]

Flip This Zombie by Jesse Petersen (book review)

Like the difficult second album, the sequel to a successful and popular book can bring trouble to an author. Do you do more of the same and risk being repetitive or expand the world and possibly lose sight of what you first wanted to achieve? Tricky. But thankfully Jesse Petersen hasn’t succumbed to any such […]

Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection by Don Roff and illustrated by Chris Lane (book review))

If you were faced with almost certain death, would you make the time to record it and leave it for future generations to learn from? I probably wouldn’t, I’d be too busy running away, screaming like a little girl and looking for somewhere to hole up while the Calvary comes. Part-diary, part-Blair Witch Project, ‘Zombies’ […]

Can You Survive The Zombie Apocalypse? by Max Brallier (book review)

If you like zombies and pick-your-own-adventures, keep on the following page. If you don’t, go back to the home page. It’s been about 20 years since I read a pick-your-own-adventure book. I remember as a young man, hiding under the covers with a torch, reading an ‘Indiana Jones’ adventure and being constantly devastated when I […]

Star Trek: Myraid Universes: Echoes And Refractions (book review)

It’s the little things that make all the difference. Missing a train that means you strike up a conversation with someone on the platform and they turn out to be your soul mate – if you had caught that train, would you have met them? Would it matter as you never would have known the […]
