I’ve got something rather interesting to review this week, as Arthur C. Clarke Award winner Adrian Tchaikovsky has written a Black Library novel. How does Day of Ascension compare to their usual output? Read on to find out!
For my review this week, I’m discussing Stillicide by Cynan Jones, which explores a future which might not be as far off as we like to think. This review probably took me longer to write than the book did to read. And no, that’s not because I write really slowly, there was just a lot… Read More Book Review: Stillicide, by Cynan Jones
OK people, strap in, things are going to get weird. That’s right, it’s time for my review of Chris Panatier’s new novel, Stringers.

This week, I’m once again tackling one of those books that slipped by me back when it was first released in 2020.

It’s time for another classic! This week, I’m reviewing Kurt Vonnegut’s second novel – 1959’s The Sirens of Titan – for Vintage Sci-fi Month. I suppose I really should have picked one of his that’s published by Vintage too, for some sort of double whammy, but I’ve already read one and the other (Timequake) is… Read More Book Review: The Sirens of Titan, by Kurt Vonnegut
In my first review for Vintage Sci-fi Month this year, I’m finally getting to grips with Alfred Bester’s 1953 classic The Demolished Man. How has it fared after all this time? Read on for my thoughts!
This week, I’m actually reviewing a new book! Wonders never cease. Superheroics and Western staples combine in Benjamin’s Percy’s The Ninth Metal, the opening salvo in his Comet Cycle. But what did I make of it? Read on to find out!
In my final backwards looking post for last year, I’m looking at my reading stats for 2021. What was my most read genre? Who was my most read author? Read on for ABSOLUTELY NO SURPRISES.
