Book review: Marque – Michael Patrick Hicks

  Michael Patrick Hicks has once again delivered a fine story indeed with Marque. Marque is a futuristic sci-fi thriller in which the world has been taken over by aliens! I sometimes struggle a little with science-fiction but Hicks had me onside from the outset with his conflicted protagonist, Darrel Fines and the delicate situation he finds himself in.

Book review: Man With The Iron Heart – Mat Nastos

Sometimes you see a book cover and you simply say “Oh yes! It will be mine!”, such was the case with Man With The Iron Heart by Mat Nastos and published by Cohesion Press.

Things are getting strange, … Continue reading Book review: There is Darkness in Every Room – Brian Fattah Steele

Book review: UBO – Steve Rasnic Tem

‘UBO’ is a superb story by Steve Rasnic Tem. It’s a sci-fi novel, though it does have strong horror elements to it as well. It follows a group of men trapped inside of a research facility.

( yep, that’s right, man-size cockroaches!), … Continue reading Book review: UBO – Steve Rasnic Tem

Book review: Come into the Light – Stephen O’Rourke

‘Come into the Light’ was certainly a strange book. It is a novella at around 60 pages and one that wastes little time in getting going. A daring escape sees protagonist Harry escape the clutches of the strange sun god/entity thing that is using mind control to turn people into loyal followers called ‘Sunbies’. I am not in any way a religious person and ‘Come … Continue reading Book review: Come into the Light – Stephen O’Rourke

Book Review: Drowned Worlds – Anthology

In a marketplace that is flooded with anthologies, it can sometimes be difficult in picking the right one. I like the idea of an anthology that has a theme behind it, one that is not content with being just another science fiction anthology but instead has asked writers to come up with a story based around a subject. This new collection of collected fiction from … Continue reading Book Review: Drowned Worlds – Anthology
