The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Sept/Oct 2016, Volume 131 # 727   (magazine review)

I’ve got a bit behind with my reviews of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ recently. This issue, however, has been well worth the wait. It is ‘MoF&SF’s first Special Author issue in a decade and their sixteenth in total and is dedicated to David Gerrold, the man who wrote Star Trek’s ‘The Trouble […]

There are some among them prepared to resort to violence, arson and even assassination. Others would incite the volatile London mob […]

U.S. Army tests its new hoverbike prototype.

The U.S Army must have seen too many Star Wars movies, as they recently demonstrated the flying capabilities of their hoverbike, a prototype vehicle which may one day make it possible for Soldiers on the battlefield to order resupply and then receive those supplies rapidly (think Amazon on the battlefield). “Anywhere on the battlefield, Soldiers […]

Welcome To My Worlds: The Art Of Rob Alexander  (book review)

Amongst the artists I came across while reading ‘Science Fiction And Fantasy Artists Of The Twentieth Century: A Biographical Dictionary’ by Jane Frank was Rob Alexander. Defunct publisher Paper Tiger was a steady source of artbooks and one that I missed, especially as their books had page to page paintings with little wasted space. Rob […]
