The Tripods – TV Series

I’ll get around to reviewing the last book in John Christopher’s The Tripods Trilogy (as well as probably the prequel), but at this point I might as well mention that there was indeed a British TV series based on the books.  It had typical BBC 1970′s production values, made in 1984.  (I’m being harsh really […]

Review: The City of Gold and Lead, by John Christopher

Reliving my earliest reading memories, I have now finished the second book in John Christopher’s Tripods Trilogy.  It continues from where the last one finished, with our hero Will, Henry and Beanpole (don’t know why he’s the only one who gets a nickname) having completed their perilous journey to the White Mountains and joining the […]

Review: The White Mountains by John Christopher

I’ve being wanting to reread this for a long time.  I remembering reading it when I was a wee one, and so was one of the things that got me interested in reading and in storytelling.  But I finally did and you know what?  It’s still pretty good.  The prose is simple, but effective, and […]

Review: Paranormality by Richard Wiseman

So I’m going to start writing some quick reviews again, because I like to and it gives me something to do.  I’m starting with a non-fiction just because it was the last thing I read. So Richard Wiseman is a psychologist.  Before he was a psychologist he was a magician, and it’s really no coincidence […]

The Little Queen – What I think.

A little bit of a retrospective on my first book The Little Queen.  A little bit of a review of my own work, I suppose (may contain spoilers).  The sequel, Asterion, is undergoing another rewrite and I’m nearly to the end of the first act.  Maybe then I’ll let some beta-readers take a look at […]

Review: Tales of the Abyss

So, I’m going to carry on reviewing the Tales series because… no reason really.  I just feel like it, and they happen to be on my brain at the moment. So, Tales of the Abyss was released in English on the Playstation 2, but I believe only in North America.  I know I had to […]

Review: Tales of Vesperia

As well as books and tat I’m going to start talking about and reviewing games and other things that I like.  But only that I like.  If you think I’m going to mention games I don’t like, then you’d be very much mistaken.  That’s just not gonna happen.  Well, unless something angers me enough to […]
