Fudges – Laserswords (discussion).

Back in December, I left a poser with my reviewers team about fudges used in Science Fiction. What are fudges? Nothing to do with confectionary. It’s where known science is wobbled in a consistent way to allow some scientific rule or technology to work, usually under the possibility that it might one day happen. Most […]

Imperial Handbook: A Commander’s Guide by Daniel Wallace (book review).

The fourth in Daniel Wallace’s ‘in-universe’ guides to the ‘Star Wars’ universe, the ‘Imperial Handbook: A Commander’s Guide’ is unique for two reasons. Firstly, it was originally published in a now sold-out Collector’s Box version and secondly, it was one of the last books to sneak non-canon material out under the ‘Star Wars’ brand name. […]

Star Wars: R2-D2’s Droid Workshop by Katrina Pallant and Szokolai Dergely (book review).

On New Year’s Eve, prior to a glass of champagne, I sat down with my nephew, Freddie, and attempted Egmont’s fun ‘Star Wars R2D2’s Droid Workshop – Build Your Own R2D2’. This is a neat Star Wars activity book with plenty to entertain any young fan of the Force. My nephew is seen and so […]

Teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Here’s the teaser trailer for the next movie in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’ll be very interesting to see how this film shapes up under the Disney brand rather than George Lucas. They’ve put so much money into it that they can’t afford for it to be anything other than an […]

Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy by Brandon Alinger (book review).

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance by Sean Williams (book review)

‘Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance’ is based on a video game ‘Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic’ which lets its players create their own adventures. I suppose familiarity with the game will enhance your reading pleasure but lack of it didn’t hurt me. The setting is 3,500 years before the rise of […]

If, however you’ve seen the episode then this is the review you’re looking for. […]

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: No Prisoners by Karen Traviss (book review).

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars: No Prisoners’ is part of a mini-series within a franchise, hence all the colons. It’s set during the Clone Wars and again focuses on Anakin Skywalker, his Padawan Ahsoka, Captain Rex of Torrent Company and the troops. In fact, Anakin barely features this time and most of the focus is […]

The Star Wars Legacy – an article by: GF Willmetts.

My train of thought for this article came from something author Rob Craig said in his introduction to his book ‘It Came From 1957’ that I reviewed recently. He describes the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy as ‘overproduced, underwritten, f/x-burdened, narratively insipid, imagination-barren franchise’ and I couldn’t actually disagree with some of that. Always remember what […]
