Review of Science and the Art of Zoo Bus Maintenance, by Dr Mike Leahy

From the back cover It is said that everyone is only three decisions away from homelessness and, after a successful career as a virologist and TV presenter, Mike Leahy found out just that. Desperate times called for desperate measures. One night after one beer too many he decided that a Zoo Bus seemed like aContinue reading “Review of Science and the Art of Zoo Bus Maintenance, by Dr Mike Leahy”

My spot on the new blog tour for Where Did I Go Right? How the Left Lost Me. SYNOPSIS ‘Voting Conservative is like buying a James Blunt album: loads of people havedone it, but weirdly you never meet them …’ Comedian Geoff Norcott should have been Labour through and through.

Review of The End Of Men, by Christina Sweeney-Baird

(This review does contain spoilers) This feels very much a book of these strange and troubled times, but amazingly it was begun in September 2018 and finished in June 2019. The author professes her amazement and horror in the preface. Imagine how she must have felt, seeing a version of the depths of her darkestContinue reading “Review of The End Of Men, by Christina Sweeney-Baird”

Review of From The Grave Of The Gods: The Augment Saga Book 1, by Alan K. Dell

(I received a copy of this novel in return for a fair and honest review.) I do love a good near-future sci fi tale, and FTGOTG, the first book of the author’s Augment Saga, definitely fits the bill. Anything that opens with a quote from Nikola Tesla gets my vote. The plot is pacey andContinue reading “Review of From The Grave Of The Gods: The Augment Saga Book 1, by Alan K. Dell”

Throwback Thursday: Review of The Feast, by Margaret Kennedy

I admit I picked this book up initially because of the beautiful cover painting of a Cornish beach in the Forties. The back is just as lovely. It reminds me of Gyllyngvase beach in Falmouth, where if you flew high enough over it you could see the coast on the other side of the town.Continue reading “Throwback Thursday: Review of The Feast, by Margaret Kennedy”

Review of A Still Life, by Elliott Wink

This is a simply beautiful little sci fi novelette. The telling of the short story is deft, menacing and bittersweet, and will leave you wanting so much more. We are introduced to 180 years into our future, to an old fashioned (even for our times) hotel of faded grandeur in Bay Area San Francisco. TheContinue reading “Review of A Still Life, by Elliott Wink”
