The Tao books hold a very special place in my heart. I discovered them by accident and instantly fell in love with the characters and the adventures they had. I loved the concept of the Quasing and Chu’s light-hearted writing style. When the Tao series came to a close, I was very satisfied with the […]

Star Trek Beyond – Movie Review

Star Trek Beyond – Movie Review 

The summer film season is always a mixed bag of emotions for me. There’s the thrill of all the blockbuster films as the studios roll out their big guns to compete in the cinema royal rumble. There’s the excitement at seeing the next epic installment in that film series you love so much. There’s the […]

It’s always an exciting time when an author you follow releases something new. Not new, as in the next book of an established series, but something brand new. Something you have never experienced before from that writer. Something you didn’t even know you wanted until you had it, then look back and wonder how you […]

The Aeronaut’s Windlass is the latest offering from the talented Jim Butcher. I have been a fan of Butcher’s work for a long time, as I’m sure many of you reading this are too. It felt strange to be picking up a book with his name on that didn’t feature a particular Chicago based, professional […]

Fear The Old Blood: A look at the narrative of Bloodborne

Fear The Old Blood: A look at the narrative of Bloodborne 

It has been several days since I completed From Software’s latest title Bloodborne. Despite this, my mind is still filled with the reverberating echoes of the games cosmic narrative. A vision of beings man was not meant to see, the distant sound of crying from a child never granted life, and the ever present illumination […]
