Matters of Light.

This velocity might vary a little, depending on how close a beam of light gets to a singularity or black hole but it slows down, never goes faster. Light also does […]

The Best of Kage Baker.

The big problem with anything that is labelled ‘Best Of…’ is no one can actually agree what should be included or left out. While it is useful to stimulate discussion, the ultimate choice will either leave the reader smug or frustrated. While the author is available to be the final arbiter, there is an excuse […]

Undermind – The Complete Series boxset.

‘Undermind’ was a Science Fiction series made by ABC television in the UK in 1965, in black and white of course, with 11 episodes each lasting 60 min. ABC made very good television back in the 60s, some of it like this which was very good indeed so we should be thankful that Network DVD […]

The Odd Life of Timothy Green (Frank’s Take).

The whimsical wonderment behind The Odd Life of Timothy Green is undeniably sweet and sentimental. This is the kind of nostalgic Disney-esque style filmmaking that satisfies the uplifting verve of movie audiences looking to escape into a magical malaise of the cutesy curiosities. Armed with a thought-provoking message about a pocketful of miracles resting on […]

Energized by Edward M. Lerner

Edward Lerner’s latest book, ‘Energized’, is a post-disaster book. An accident has resulted in the Middle East oil being radioactive contaminated, according to the book’s inside sleeve, and Russia has a bigger say in where other countries’ power resources are procured from. It’s a shame there isn’t more emphasis on this disaster in the opening […]

The Silent War (The Asteroid Wars book 3) by Ben Bova

I am new to ‘The Asteroid Wars, having missed ‘The Precipice’ and ‘The Rock Rats’ that preceded this book but ‘The Silent War’ looked interesting enough to skip those and dive right in with the last book of the series. It certainly does not require the reader to have read the other books being a […]
