Mar 25, 2021 No Comments by

“The sea has never been friendly to man. At most it has been the accomplice of human restlessness.” —Joseph Conrad The sea has always stirred dark and mysterious thoughts in mankind. It is part of our world, yet it is not our world. We can’t live there as we live upon land. Even in the […]

If you run in the circles in which I run, chances are you’ve been asked whether you prefer Star Wars or Star Trek at least once. The only answer to that question, of course, is Alien. Alien is such a part of our culture that it can be easy to forget what a revolutionary movie […]

All My Colors Book Review

Jun 12, 2019 No Comments by

At first blush, All My Colors seems to slot neatly into the subgenre of “writer horror” — a book that delves into the fear that lingers at the edges of creativity. In some respects, it shares much in common with Stephen King’s novella Secret Window, Secret Garden or Kathe Koja’s cosmic artist’s horror, Cipher. But […]

Rabid Genius: Harlan Ellison Eulogized

Jul 02, 2018 No Comments by

Author Harlan Ellison died in his sleep on June 28th at the age of 84.  I’ve written and deleted that sentence about two-hundred times over the past 48 hours.  I have no idea what to follow it with, because I have no idea how to sum him up.  There’s no clever literary trick to summarize […]

As a huge fan of the film franchise and someone who has absolutely loved both Prometheus and Covenant, the films, I was more than excited to dig in to the Alien: Covenant Origins novel. Unfortunately, the novel fell short of expectations just a tad for me, but it was still an entertaining read. The book […]
