Teaser When a war rages across all of time, nowhere is truly safe. Not even in the hospitals far from the frontline. For in this place beyond places, dangers comes not only from the enemy, but from those you should see as friends . . . Review Over on the Fantasy & Beyond forum this past month, there’s been a read-along of Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone’s novella This is How You Lose the Time War. I listened to that book several years ago and found it an enjoyable, if inconsequential, story of lovers caught on opposite sides of a temporal conflict. This got me thinking about time wars in ..read more

Book Stats A collection of 10 Short Stories This Masterworks edition published in 2020 Weird tales from the pulp era 393 pages Teaser Time is not what it used to be. All across the world, time is breaking apart, and realities begin to cross over. And this strangeness is only the beginning of the strangeness . . . Review I have waited a long time to read this book. Having never really known all that much about Murray Leinster and his work, I ordered it online many months ago. That order happened to fall in the middle of Waterstones’ warehouse shipping issues, so it only turned up towards the ..read more

Book Stats A prequel to the original Quantum Leap Published by Boulevard First published in 1994 A Thriller with hints of Time Travel 247 pages Teaser Dr Sam Beckett is a genius in his field, and now turns his attention towards highly theoretical research. But his latest project is drawing the wrong kind of attention, and Sam’s enemies are drawing near . . . Review Quantum Leap is one of those classic science fiction shows that I haven’t had time to watch yet, even though I’d quite like to. Well, it’s partly due to time constraints. It’s also due to the cost of the boxset. Either way, I like ..read more

For the past few months, we’ve been reading six more semi-finalists from the inaugural SPSFC. Today we’ve got the third full review of these six, which is of Geoff Jones’ The Dinosaur Four. This book has an SPSFC rating of 5.50 out of 10. There are science fiction books that use their speculative elements to encourage questions and lines of thought that you just don’t get in other forms of literature. And then there are science fiction books that use speculative elements to tell an exciting and entertaining story that is likewise impossible without the trappings of the genre. Despite what som ..read more

These are my personal initial impressions of the books allocated to the At Boundary’s Edge team during Phase 2 of the inaugural SPSFC. Ratings are subject to change as I take a closer look at each book. Full length reviews of each book will be posted once the whole team has had a chance to read and discuss the books. As always, readers are encouraged to read the books themselves and make up their own minds. All The Whys Of Delilah’s Demise, by Neve Maslakovic 4/10 I like a lot of the ideas in this one. It’s got a good insight of role model culture, and the way we make idolised versions of eac ..read more
