The Commons by Matthew Hughes  (book review)

I first came across Matthew Hughes in ‘Interzone’ a few years back and was immediately struck by the story’s similarity to something that might have been written by Jack Vance. Of course, I’m not the only one to have spotted that and the cover of this and his other books makes that comparison. This book […]

Understanding Contemporary American Science Fiction: The Formative Period, 1926-1970 by Thomas D. Clareson  (book review)

Waking Hell by Al Robertson (book review).

Although ‘Waking Hell’ by Al Robertson isn’t described as cyberpunk, it has all the digital footprints that says it is. Digital beings co-existing with organic life pretty much sums that up. Although the boundary to a digital reality is less so. Leila Fenech is a fetch. A being whose existing memories after physical death given […]

Class: Joyride by Guy Adams (book review).

An original novel based on the BBC3 series ‘Class’ created by Patrick Ness, ‘Joyride’ is something a little bit new and its rather good.
