There’s a British interest here as he’s ex-SAS and the opening chapters take place in Dundee. However, the future has not been kind to Dundee or other areas of Britain. It seems there was a Final […]

Seeing What Others Cannot See by Thomas G. West (book review)

It’s odd that I haven’t come across any of the other books by Thomas G. West because he specialises in the genius mind. With ‘Seeing What Others Cannot See’, the sub-title, ‘The Hidden Advantages Of Visual Thinkers And Differently Wired Brains’ gives what this book is all about. Namely, key scientists have a stronger sense […]

Magic For Nothing (InCrypid book 6) by Seanan McGuire (book review)

There are two ways of tackling a series of books involving the same group of characters.
