Ancient Appetites (The Wildenstern Saga book 1) by Oisin McGann (book review).

‘Ancient Appetites’ is book one in ‘The Wildenstern Saga’, which currently stands at three books and one novella. They are classed as YA, so not much swearing and sex goes on within these pages, but you will encounter ‘a little bit of mild peril’ as they say at the movies. The first thing you need […]

Then in the ten years from 1950 to 1959, Science Fiction […]

Apex Magazine # 88, September 2016 (e-mag review).

Issue 88 of ‘Apex Magazine’ is hot off the press and the very striking cover by Mélanie Delon. It is hauntingly beautiful and scary at the same time. Not the type of person you would want to meet on a dark September night. Having savoured the cover, ‘Apex’ kick things off as normal with Jason […]

High Stakes (A Wild Cards novel) edited by George R.R. Martin and Melinda M. Snodgrass (book review).

The problem with the ‘Wild Cards’ mosaic these days is that after 23 books, started back in the later 1980s, which makes co-editor George RR Martin’s more recent fantasy series look like a small excursion in comparison, you do have to a little knowledge to break into.
