From Ice To Ashes by Rhett C. Bruno (book review)

‘From Ice To Ashes’ by Rhett C. Bruno is a standalone novel set in the same world as ‘Titanborn’. The books are related and reading one will enhance the experience of reading the other.

In other words, the poorly made everyday products you have or might have owned and had or your children have had serious and often fatal problems […]

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is the upcoming scifi movie based on the French graphic novel of the same name, directed by Luc Besson of The Professional, The Fifth Element, and Lucy fame. Interestingly, I always thought of The Fifth Element as a French graphic novel in cinematic form. It was, of […]

The Blackcoat’s Daughter (2017) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Mysterious goings-on go on at an all-girl Catholic school over winter break. The film is shot with an excess of style that got in the way of the coherence. The freezing setting of upstate New York reaches into the tone of the entire film and even the spirit of the viewer. The ambience is certainly […]

Slow Bullets by Alastair Reynolds (book review).

‘Slow Bullets’ is the second of Alastair Reynolds’ novellas I’ve read recently, the other being ‘The Iron Tactician’ and, like that book, the scope of the tale comes across just as vast as his much fatter novels, with a sense of history and scale that place the tale as part of something far larger. In […]
