If you’re lucky, your world and this will only cross over once or twice but imagine it being your daily life. This is what Harlan Ellison highlights in this […]

I Travel By Night by Robert McCammon (book review).

Some things just go together perfectly: fish and chips, salt and vinegar, vampires and angst. The latter has become such a staple of bloodsucking lore that I’m crying out for a happy-go-lucky vampire who sees the positive side of being undead and uses the fact that he can only go out at night to take […]

The Hunter From The Woods by Robert McCammon (book review).

Everyone has a secret side to them but does yours have the ability to turn into a ferocious animal that can tear a human apart, like the lead character in ‘The Hunter From The Woods’? I doubt it. Continuing on from his 1989 book ‘The Wolf’s Hour’, Robert McCammon presents more of Michael Gallatin, the […]

Magic Highways: The Early Jack Vance, Volume Three (book review).

Given the events of a week back, how I could possibly give this collection a bad review? The legendary author Jack Vance passed away earlier last week and has left behind an outstanding legacy within Science Fiction and fantasy. A big part of this legacy is his prolific nature. Determined to be known as a […]

Winter’s Dreams by Glen Cook (book review)

For anyone who has ever had tapas, they’ll know that while tastes delicious, there are times it can be a little unsatisfying. There’s not enough of each dish for you to feel full but you’re left with some tantalising flavours that you want more of. ‘Winter’s Dreams’ certainly qualifies as a selection of small yet […]

Dream Castles (The Early Jack Vance Volume 2) by Jack Vance (book review)

Right, I’ll hold my hands up and admit it. I’ve never read Jack Vance before this collection. If that admission hasn’t made you turn off your computer or mobile device in disgusted fury, please bear with me as I’m a convert. In ‘Dream Castles’. this second volume of works originally published between 1947 and 1968, […]

The Incarceration Of Captain Nebula by Mike Resnick (book review).

Some authors are reluctant to write short stories, either because they think they are no good at it and prefer the longer length of a novel or because they don’t find the time between those novels. In some cases, they are correct in leaving the shorter pieces alone. Some, like Mike Resnick, surprise themselves. The […]

The Affair Of The Chalk Cliffs (A Langdon St. Ives Adventure) by James P. Blaylock (book review).

James P. Blaylock is widely credited with being one of the progenitors of modern literary steampunk. As a sub-genre of Science Fiction, steampunk has deeper roots than Blaylock’s writing taking, as it does, cues from Victorian era writers such as Verne and Wells. However, they are different. The proto-Science Fiction of Verne and Wells was, […]

Salvage And Demolition by Tim Powers	(book review).

‘Salvage And Demolition’, the latest novella from Tim Powers, is a classic. I don’t necessarily mean it’s an enduring work of genius (though it’s pretty damn good), rather that it’s written in such a way and about such things as to instantly hurl its reader back in time to the or at least ‘a’ golden […]
