Quantum Coin by E.C. Myers.

Ask and you shall receive. When I reviewed the first book in this series, ‘Fair Coin’, I hoped that this would not be the last of Ephraim and his parallel world adventures. Thankfully, E.C.

Please do not feel guilty in worshipping these […]

Palimpsest by Charles Stross

As a novella, Palimpsest is densely packed with extraordinary ideas, facts and speculation. It also manages to pack in an absorbing story to wrap all this around.

Hello everyone There’s been some talk on the Net about how the UK invariably becomes second best with DVD releases that don’t have all the special extras the American version gets.
