Review: In Memory: A Tribute to Terry Pratchett

And the best part? All proceeds from sales of the book will go to Alzheimer’s Research, UK, Pratchett’s favourite charity.

Each of these stories has a simple conflict that builds to a satisfying resolution, with just enough detail to make the reader believe...

Review: Devil or Angel by Matthew Hughes

Devil or Angel is a highly enjoyable read with a lot of solid writing...and some confounding problems.

Review: Blood Ties

I’m not a big fan of science fiction/western hybrids; for me, the tropes of the two genres just don’t mesh very well. A good...

Review: Cairo by Gaslight

Cairo by Gaslight may not be the book you want it to be.

Review(s): ChiZine Humour Books

If you like your humour dipped in acid, these books will definitely be for you

Strange Worlds Stories is a very, very silly book. But if your taste runs to that kind of humour, you’re sure to find it very, very enjoyable.

What if aliens just aren’t that into us?

When I heard that Mosely had started writing speculative fiction, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some of it. Crosstown to Oblivion is a collection of six short novels in three volumes...

Book Review: Virtual Vengeance by Thomas JJ Starr

The book starts well, with a scene of the main character, Russian Yuri Petrov, hacking people’s credit card information; he and his friend end up in big trouble with the police when they hack the wrong person’s account. It is a tense, tautly written scene with a real kick at the end.

Review: Extreme Dentistry by A. D. Spencer

Dentistry can be 'horrific'? Say it ain't so!

Review: Undead Redhead

Combining humor and horror...a difficult task, unless your main character is a vegan zombie.
