In the Flesh… coming back.

Another trailer for the BBC’s attempt to cash in on all those undead viewing figures that the Walking Dead and the like have been attracting. In the Flesh. It’s a little like the end of Shaun of the Dead where Shaun’s buddy has been chained to a sofa as a tame zombie to play computer […]

Lost Girl, Season One (DVD review).

Coming from Canada, ‘Lost Girl’ is apparently a successful TV series which is now into its third season. It has been shown around the world and on, I believe, Sky Television in the UK, so it already has a track record of some merit. What’s on offer in this package is the first season on […]

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles book 1) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (book review).

This is book one in the ‘Caster Chronicles’ a series of four books continuing in ‘Beautiful Darkness’, ‘Beautiful Chaos’ and ‘Beautiful Redemption’. This book starts out in a very similar vein to other teen urban fantasy novels, except this time we’re listening in on some male angst rather than the traditional female protagonist. There are […]

Black Static # 19 – Oct-Nov 2010 (magazine review).

When publishers make changes to the appearance of a product, there are two questions: Why and is it better? To be fair, the changes to ‘Black Static’s cover from #18 to #19 are largely cosmetic. The dark, mainly black trademark appearance is still there. The information that most casual buyers would want is still there. […]

Black Static # 18 – August-September 2010 	(mag review).

Very often a reviewer will talk about and disparage a formula. While this might be a true reason for attack when the subject is a novel, a film or a short story, it is quite the opposite in the case of a magazine. The reader who picks up and subsequently buys the item needs to […]

Resident Evil: Retribution (DVD review).

Ninety-six minutes of action and I mean action. From the start where Alice, played by Milla Jovovich, is fighting for her life out at sea, right through to the cataclysmic ending, we’ve got action all the way through. Now into its fifth movie, ‘Resident Evil’ has still got plenty of mileage left, as this movie […]

Greyglass by Tanith Lee	(book review).

There are some novels where the human characters seem less important than the place in which the story is set. This can be a landscape, a planet or a house. In Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune’ it is very much the planet that is the hero. Without the broad sweep of desert and the creatures that live […]
