Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie (book review).

‘Sharp Ends’ is a collection of short stories that feature characters from Joe Abercrombie’s collection of six novels about the ‘First Law’ world. Each story is standalone but you will probably get an enhanced enjoyment if you have read the novels. If you haven’t read the novels, this serves as a taster to the style, […]

‘The Horns Of Ruins’ is an exciting blend of fantasy and steampunk set in a rich and varied city where technology and magic co-exist. It’s main theme is religion and the way it can be used to control. How what we are expected to except on faith may not be the whole truth. How religion […]

Ursula Newis also found a way between worlds, coming from Gareth’s ‘new world’ to his original world or the ‘old world’. While Gareth seeks to […]

Dragon Hunters (Chronicles of the Exile book 2) by Marc Turner (book review).

‘Dragon Hunters’ is book two in Marc Turner’s fantasy series ‘The Chronicles Of The Exile’. I’d like to kick off this review with a disclaimer that I haven’t read ‘When The Heavens Falls’, book one in this series, but was assured by the author that new readers should be able to jump straight in because […]

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them . . . new trailer for next Potterverse movie.

JK Rowling shifts her action to the US of A, and the time to prohibition era 1930s for the next Potterverse movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Think the Untouchables, but with wizards instead of G-Men. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the Whomping Willow.

Game of Thrones season six trailer: he drinks and knows things.

Here’s the Game of Thrones season 6 trailer: he drinks and knows things. And he baits really fire-throwy dragons, too. You know. Little chap. Probably end up as king at the end of it all when everyone else is dead. Tyrion, he’s your man.

Covenant’s End: A Widdershins Adventure by Ari Marmell.

Well, it’s taken three books to get here but the fourth book, ‘Covenant’s End’, could well be the final book for Widdershins as we know her. It’s a fitting, epic final but I’m sure there going to be a lot of fans who are going to hate Ari Marmell for it. For those who are […]

Javelin Rain (A Shadow Ops Novel) by Myke Cole (book review)

‘Javelin Rain’ is a direct sequel to ‘Gemini Cell’. You’ll definitely want to (should) read the first book to get a good handle on the back story, because author Myke Cole doesn’t waste a lot of time catching you up. He’s too busy keeping former SEAL Jim Schweitzer one step ahead of his pursuers! Schweitzer […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (film review by Frank Ochieng)

One would think that the ultimate showdown between two of the most iconic super-heroes would make for some downright compelling action-oriented exploits against a landscape of angst and destruction. Plus, it certainly did not hurt that exhilarating filmmaker Zack Snyder (‘300’) was at the helm in bringing together the colorfully and concocted confrontation between The […]

Nightchild (Chronicles Of The Raven book 3) by James Barclay  (book review)

‘Nightchild’ is the final book in James Barclay’s debut ‘Chronicles Of The Raven’ trilogy, with which he blazed a trail through the UK’s epic fantasy scene between 1999 and 2001. I reviewed the first two novels in the series, ‘Dawnthief’ and ‘Noonshade’, for SFCrowsnest a few months ago. Does ‘Nightchild’ provide a suitably dramatic ending […]
