Alien Plots by Inez van der Spek (book review)

Now here’s an odd or unusual book depending on your perspective. Inez van der Spek’s book ‘Alien Plots’ makes better but not total sense from its sub-title ‘Female Subjectivity And The Divine In The Light Of James Tiptree’s A Momentary Taste Of Being’. On first seeing the title when I was selecting books from the […]

Veteran (book 1) by Gavin G. Smith  (book review)

Veteran (book 1) by Gavin G. Smith (book review)

‘Veteran’ tells the story of Sergeant Jakob Douglas, an ex-special forces veteran who has been discharged from the forces. 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 […]

Doctor Who season 10 episode 11. World Enough And Time by Steven Moffat

Doctor Who season 10 episode 11. World Enough And Time by Steven Moffat

Time stretches out for that cybernetic moment so from here in there are spoilers! The premise for the opening of this story is clever. The Doctor wants to see if he’s reformed Missy and gives her a chance for some humane moments and lets the TARDIS choose a place for this in an emergency. As […]

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

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 […]

Wolf At The Door by Theresa Derwin  (book review)

Wolf At The Door by Theresa Derwin (book review)

Modern writers of horror have a difficult problem. Gone are the days of sitting around a real fire in a room lit by candlelight, with the wind howling outside and rats scratching in the walls. It is made harder by the authors who have taken the tradition scary monster such as the werewolf and vampire […]

Superheroes On World Screens edited by Rayna Denison and Rachel Mizsei-Ward   (book review)

Superheroes On World Screens edited by Rayna Denison and Rachel Mizsei-Ward (book review)

I was rather amused by the introduction saying there wasn’t many books out there about comicbook characters being adapted into movies when I have two more in my current pile on the subject from the same publisher.
