Movie review: Black Panther

Since Black Panther’s inclusion in Captain America: Civil War, comic book fans have been eagerly awaiting T’Challa’s stand-alone movie. Black Panther is a character with a huge cult following – a unique superhero, who stands apart from the standard Marvel fare. But the film has had a troubled history; dwelling in development hell since as…


Book review: The Warmaster by Dan Abnett

The Warmaster is the fourteenth novel in the Gaunt’s Ghost series, and marks Dan Abnett’s long-awaited return to Black Library. Incredibly, the thirteenth entry in the series – Salvation’s Reach – was published all the way back in October 2011, and left Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and his famous Ghosts in the aftermath of a tremendous victory…


Netflix review: Altered Carbon

Altered Carbon is – somewhat incredibly – Richard K Morgan’s debut novel. The combination of cyberpunk SF and detective noir hits a particularly sweet spot: representing in some ways an updating Bladerunner, and standing as a modern day classic for many. I was a latecomer to the series; I think that I picked AC up…


Netflix review: Bright

Over the last few years, Netflix has been expanding its original content and sinking huge amounts of cash into movies and series. Some of these have been very effective, and met with critical acclaim: Daredevil and Jessica Jones immediately come to mind. Both of those series demonstrate how Netflix has grown as an original developer;…


Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year from the Lazarus Legion

A very merry Christmas, and a happy new year, to all Lazarus War and Eternity War readers out there! This has been an incredible year, what with the release Pariah.

As I promised last week, this week’s post is all about superheroes, and specifically my top five superhero films of 2017. The superhero concept continues to excite both the SF enthusiast, and the public at large. It is, of course, the latter category that feeds the hero machine that is Marvel – and with a…


Trailer for The Eternity War: Pariah

Today I’m excited to reveal the video trailer for my latest release! I could talk all day about how awesome this is, but take a look for yourself… The Eternity War: Pariah is my latest release, and is the first book in a brand new trilogy. If you enjoyed my first series, The Lazarus War,…


Top 5 SF movies of 2017

The year is drawing to a close, and it’s time to look back on the highs of science fiction… For me, this has been a strange year so far as SF on the big screen is concerned. There have been some incredible films, sure, but they seem to have been few and far between. I’ve…


Top 10 of 2017: PARIAH makes the cut!

As the year draws to a close, lots of us are probably reflecting on our favourite books of the year. I’m doing just the same, while trying to cram in another few reads before we close on 2017. Earlier this year, I reported Liz Loves Books was kind enough to give me one of my…


Movie review: JUSTICE LEAGUE

JUSTICE LEAGUE continues DC’s attempt at a shared universe, which commenced with 2016’s BATMAN v SUPERMAN. BvS faced a challenging fan reaction, and despite the premise’s promise, it was widely regarded as being overly dark and melodramatic. SUICIDE SQUAD attempted to redress that balance, by bringing some humour and fun back into the mix, but…
