From the start, I should point out that this second edition of ‘The Encyclopedia Of Superheroes On Film And Television’ by John Kenneth Muir from 1951 and only reaches as far as 2008. No doubt with all the super-hero films that have come out in the past four or more years, depending when the next […]

Quantum Coin by E.C. Myers.

Ask and you shall receive. When I reviewed the first book in this series, ‘Fair Coin’, I hoped that this would not be the last of Ephraim and his parallel world adventures. Thankfully, E.C.
