Serenity: No power in the ‘Verse written by Chris Robinson, art by Georges Jeanty, Karl Story, Wes Dzioba, Michael Heisler and Stephen Byrne (Graphic Novel, 2017). I don’t often read graphic novels, but I enjoyed this one a lot. The fifth in an ongoing series, No Power in the ‘Verse is colorful, beautifully produced and meaty. The title novel […]Read more "REVIEWED: Serenity: No Power In The ‘Verse"

They follow The Return of the Jedi but come well before The Force Awakens in the chronology of the ever-growing franchise canon. It shows the final (suitably violent) collapse […]Read more "REVIEWED: Star Wars Aftermath: Empire’s End"
The Dark Light-Years by Brian Aldiss (Science Fiction Novel, 1964). Aldiss, one of the Grand Masters of science fiction’s New Wave, recently died. This inspired me to dig out my somewhat ancient paperback copy of this novel to reread (after multiple decades).
