The Eternity War: Pariah – reviewed on SF Concatenation

Pariah has just been reviewed in the seminal SF Concatenation! Here’s an excerpt from the review: “Pariah is a brilliant beginning to the ‘Eternity War’ series. The characters are varied and subverted, and their conflicts shoulder most of the narrative weight. The world-building serves the narrative, and not the other way round, and it make…


Alien: The Cold Forge by Alex White

An original Alien book is something special in my reading calendar, and when Alex White’s The Cold Forge hit my radar late last year I was immediately interested. But that interest was tempered with a natural apprehension: in recent years, we’ve seen some serious letdowns to the Alien franchise. I’m still bitter from the experience…

Netflix review: Lost in Space (2018)

It sometimes seems that Hollywood – and the media industry generally – is caught in endless cycle of reboots. It’s often said that there are no new ideas anymore, and in the last few years we’ve seen an increasing number of reboots and reimaginings of classic films and series. Some have been good; with the…


The Lazarus War & The Eternity War: suggested reading order

I’ve had a few emails lately from readers asking about the order in which they should read my books, so I thought I’d do a blogpost on the topic. I now have two book series on general release, with another book due later this year, and several foreign language versions available, so things are bound…


Book review: Babylon’s Ashes by James SA Corey

Babylon’s Ashes is the sixth in the hugely popular Expanse series. Not only has The Expanse been a highly successful run of books, but it has also recently been made into a very well-received TV series by SyFy (available on Netflix in the UK). It’s also one of my favourite SF book series – so…


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…


Top 5 superhero movies of 2017

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…
