The man staring at Guy across the table had a chest, shoulders and arms built for bending iron bars. He folded them and said, “I don’t trust him.”
Doctor Who: Heralds Of Destruction Review
Ever since Doctor Who came back to our screens in 2005, it seems as though past doctors have been sidelined somewhat in prose. Indeed the novel range featuring them disappeared, there have only been sporadic novels since then, and their appearances in multi-Doctor comic arcs. It's only been in the last couple of years that Titan Comics has sought to readdress the balance somewhat with a string of miniseries featuring past Doctors. The latest features the Third Doctor (played on-screen by Jon Pertwee between 1970 and 1974) and sees a return to Who by writer Paul Cornell. Cornell's past Who works include both the novel and later TV adaptation of Human Nature as well as the 2005 episode Father's Day and the groundbreaking 1991 Who novel Timewyrm: Revelation. He was also, back in the day, not a fan of this era at all. Which makes it all the more interesting that what he wrote is essentially something of a blast from the past for this Doctor and Cornell's apparent farewell to Who as a writer.Matthew Kresal
Review of Westworld 1.9
Another episode of Westworld -- 1.9 -- just breathtaking in its philosophical insight and daring. The series, brilliant from the outset, just keeps getting better.
Space Travel: Breakthrough Starshot Launch Paves The Way To Alpha Centauri
On June 23, 2017, a slew of Sprite spacecraft had a successful launch into orbit. But, it was more than just a trip to Earth's orbit, it was the first step into a new kind of space mission, one that promises to take us farther, faster than ever before.Anya Wassenberg
Four Sci-Fi Movies That Should Totally Get A Reboot
In general I hate the idea of rebooting or remaking a classic movie. They very rarely are as good as the original and come across as a lazily made cash grab which is exactly what they usually are. I mean if a movie is considered to be a timeless classic, why else would Hollywood feel the need to revisit that story? Take Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes for example. Did anybody working on this movie really believe they were producing something special? I highly doubt it.Alan Dobbins
Looking Glass Part 4: The Day They Got Separated
It was a full moon on the night before the three got separated for good. The Native American Chief’s wife asked “tell me it's not true Dakota…say it's just a story that everybody is talking about”, as they both sat round the campfire waiting for some news from one of the observers or Fred. They both stared into the fire; they could see the three triplets playing in the orphanage in the department, knowing that the three of them would soon forget each other.Lizzy Arrow
Charlie the Unicorn Slayer
Revenge is a dish best served with mustard and mayonnaise, thought Charlie as she stared with cold anger at the crumbs on the ground before her.
Review of Somewhere 1.2
A strong second episode of Somewhere Between last night, which answers some questions and sets out some ground rules for this story.
Petey Crackerjack & The Wonderful & Mysterious Text Adventure Game
Tis the night before finals, and all through the house, not a creature is stirring, except for this louse... Petey thought as he lay in bed. He still could not sleep, tossing and turning, tortured by this wretched, horrid assignment.
Welcome back! As the last article stated we would be basically be reviewing and providing perspective while applying common sense in chronological order to these vast ancient texts spanning over the various types of ancient Cuneiform as well as Egyptian Hieroglyphics, which reveal in great detail not only our origins but obvious forms of advanced technology, and when I say advanced, I don't mean outrageously advanced such as teleportation, but rather think about the whole Steampunk aesthetic with a digital edge, combined with classical Greek attire and a preordained contract with royal customs, these guys go hard in the paint when it comes to tradition! So anyways, here's how it goes, I start with a date, provide an overview of the events according to their history and numerics, which ultimately perfectly time up with things like the archeological record and our own timeline of modern events, then a review of those events individually with a common sense perspective of my own, keep in mind that everything is up for interpretation, here goes!Zachary Bellrose
There was a man standing at the foot of the stairs talking to the proprietor. He was short, dressed in a black suit, a black trilby on his head. While they watched he took off the hat and ran a hand over his short hair before accepting a glass of water. They watched him drain it and hand it back, with his hat, to the proprietor.
