Spaceship Away Part 27 Summer 2012.

Get your 1950s style spaceship out, it’s time to join Captain Dan Dare in the latest edition of ‘Spaceship Away’. Oddly, in the opening part of Tim Booth’s story, Parsecular Tales’, he only makes a brief appearance as he’s off on a mission to the Asteroid Belt. It is Hank Hogan who is introduced to […]

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 […]

Don’t Step Over The Welcome Mat

a story of house etiquette by: GF Willmetts   I don’t let anyone breathing into my house.   I can see what you’re thinking. You’ll hold your breath. I tell you, when you see my axe, you’ll have a sharp intake of breath. Works every time. So, come on over.   © GF Willmetts 2012 […]

Para Time. Slider with Cops?

The chap behind the retro time-travelling TV crime series, Life on Mars (and its follow-up Ashes to Ashes), Matthew Graham, is coming back with a new series for 20th Century Fox that sounds a little like Sliders combined with Hill Street Blues. Called Para Time – as in parallel universe, rather than the British nickname […]

Star Wars Detours.

For those that like their Star Wars live action-stylee and believe that the Clone Wars is a step too far for the Lucas Film franchising monster, you may want to avert your delicate eyes now, for Seth Green’s Star Wars: Detours send-up is nearly upon us. We are promised that the action in the comedy […]

Who’s in the house?

Here’s some new Doctor Who-inspired leggings and a dress from a firm called Black Milk. The only trouble is, looking at this, you’re going to need to have the body of a very thin teenager to be able to squeeze into them (or maybe it’s just the model they are using). You know, like Wilma […]

Wahlberg and Neeson in Neuromancer.

The Neuromancer film is pressing ahead now, with Liam Neeson and Mark Wahlberg firmly in the frame for the leading roles. This is of course the classic SF novel by William Gibson. Mark will be the young hacker, and Neeson his cyberspace handler/ex-military intelligence guy. It’ll be interesting to see how they handle the FX, […]

Classic Spock.

Our chums over at Hollywood Collectibles are making with a 1:4 scale Spock from the classic Star Trek series to go along with their Kirk in the same range. It’ll be nineteen inches of Trek goodness at around $300 (I know, everything is meant to be free in the Federation, but…). It’s a 750 run […]
