Book news: foreign language editions of The Lazarus War

The Lazarus War is now available in Czech, French, German and English editions. I recently received a delivery from my publisher, and couldn’t help sharing how incredible the foreign language versions are… The covers of the English language Lazarus War books are amazing, and I really couldn’t be happier with the choice of artist and…


Movie review: The Predator

  The Predator is easily my most anticipated movie of 2018. It feels like it has been forever in the works: with an initial release date for spring 2018, which then drifted back to September this year. However, behind the excitement lurked a trepidation as well – and the news of reshoots and plot issues…


Comic review: Fire and Stone – the Collected Edition

The ending of Ant-Man – as well as the film’s box office success – pretty much guaranteed a sequel….


Blu ray review: Ready Player One

Ready Player One started life as a book by Ernest Cline, and on its release on 2011 it very quickly acquired a cult status. By the time I came to it (a few months after its release), the buzz around Cline’s book was very nearly irresistible. It was pretty inevitable, therefore, that Ready Player One…


Breaking news: Dark Horse releasing Gibson’s Alien 3

                    Dark Horse Comics has just announced that William Gibson’s unmade Alien 3 script is going to be made into a comic book. On the face of it, this is a brash move. The script is now decades old, and I’m sure that many casual Alien…
