A Feast Unknown (A Wold Newton novel) by Philip José Farmer	(book review).

As I’ve pointed out with other of Philip José Farmer’s ‘Wold Newton’ books, many of the characters, especially those who have an active copyright were thinly disguised under different names. Here we have a jungle man, John or Jack Cloamby aka Lord Grandrith, who is all but Tarzan and Doctor Caliban with the remaining two […]

It’s autumn and time for another volume of ‘Modesty Blaise’ to make you feel happier about the darker nights although reading in daylight is equally good. The first story, ‘The Girl From The Future’, gets into Science Fiction territory. Modesty admits to reading a little and Willie Garvin a lot. However, it takes a lot […]
