Editorial – February 2017:   We live in interesting times.

Hello everyone There are some rare instances when I don’t start writing an editorial early in the month or prepared to rewrite when there are news events that can’t be ignored and put SF issues into the shade. Looking at how this month is flashing by, I didn’t fancy writing anything at the last minute […]

The Stolen Lyric Movie (2016) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

CAPSULE: To all appearances, this is not so much a film as it is a stunt to set a legal precedent. An entire animated film has only fragments of rock songs comprising its audio track. The audio track is 555 song fragments legally copied from 129 rock singers. Chase Peter Garrettson writes and directs. Rating: […]

Editorial – December 2016: Why there is a need for an Establishment.

Armageddon begins in January. Maybe we’ll be lucky and have an alien invasion first. Hello everyone Y’know, if we wrote what happened in world events this year as fiction a few years back, people would think it would never happen. I think we ought to make a complaint that reality shouldn’t imitate art. At least […]

Editorial – November 2016: All decisions are based on choice.

Hello everyone With our options for space travel so limited, let’s play around with one that tends to come out of the Science Fiction Handbook. Namely, if an alien spaceship arrived tomorrow and offered to take humans as colonists to another world, how many would take up the offer? Granted, said aliens wouldn’t be sure […]

Editorial – September 2016: The Geek Credential – what is it??

The Geek Credential It’s all geek to me. Geek-spotting. Being geeky means being able to defend an argument adequately.   Hello everyone What makes us be true geek rather than those who only think they are or those wannabes who want to make the connection to us and not realising how badly they might be […]
