Dangerous Women edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois   (book review)

This bumper collection has the theme of dangerous women but is not genre specific so there are all sorts of stories from westerns to fantasies. Most of them are long, thirty to forty pages so would be classed as novelettes or novellas depending on your taste. Most of them are by productive if not famous […]

Making It Big In Shorts by Kim Adelman (book review).

I should point out from the start that Kim Adelman’s book, ‘Making It Big In Shorts’, has nothing to do with school children. We are talking short films. These are 40 minutes or less, the latter being the operative word and you shouldn’t really think beyond 10-15 minutes worth without risking boring the audience and […]
