Now and again, your compass points toward the weird and you almost believe there’s other stuff out there: aliens, ghosts, alternate realities and Elder Gods. You’ve wondered. When something large and […]

Altered Starscape (Andromedan Dark: Book One) by Ian Douglas

I have always wanted to use the phrase ‘it’s got everything but the kitchen sink’ in a SF book and ‘Altered Starscape’ gives me that opportunity. Mobile O’Neill colony’s, AIs, Cyborgs, modified humans, aliens, Alderson disks, Dyson swarms, you name it and its most likely to be in ‘Altered Starscape’. I don’t mean this in […]

Version Control by Dexter Palmer  (book review)

Dexter Palmer’s novel ‘Version Control’ is densely written. You get a lot of detail and in the opening chapters even product placement that would make a film studio blush. It isn’t until a quarter of the way through the book that you get some discussion on time travel which is accurate to what we know. […]

The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Sept/Oct 2016, Volume 131 # 727   (magazine review)

I’ve got a bit behind with my reviews of ‘The Magazine Of Fantasy & Science Fiction’ recently. This issue, however, has been well worth the wait. It is ‘MoF&SF’s first Special Author issue in a decade and their sixteenth in total and is dedicated to David Gerrold, the man who wrote Star Trek’s ‘The Trouble […]
