Beyond The Empire (The Indranan War book 3) by K.B Wagers (book review).

Being brought up to speed in little less that a paragraph in the opening chapter and just a little more on the back cover, I really wish publishers insisted more authors provide a proper series synopsis for us poor devils who read several dozen books a year. While off-planet, Empress Hail Bristol finds herself cut-off […]

The Champions Original Soundtrack by Robert Farnon, Edwin Astley, Albert Elms and Tony Hatch (TV series soundtrack CD review).

I’ve known about Network’s TV series CD collections for some years. They were also limited editions and expensive, double what I paid last month.

Think Before You Like by Guy P. Harrison (book review).

Guy P. Harrison’s book, ‘Think Before You Like’, makes more sense from the very long sub-title, ‘Social Media’s Effect On The Brain And The Tools You Need To Navigate Your Newsfeed’. In other words, he’s investigating social media and as someone who doesn’t really use it, it’ll be interesting to see if he can convince […]

Hawkmoon: The Sword Of Dawn by Michael Moorcock (book review).

Michael Moorcock is widely regarded as one of the key figures in the history of British Science Fiction and fantasy, but this reviewer at least came to him relatively recently and the reissuing of this 1968 novel, ‘Hawkmoon: The Sword Of Dawn’, provided the opportunity to decide if Moorcock’s older works are still worth reading.
