Book Review; "Damned Children of Naor" by Justyna Plichta-Jendzio

Damned Children of Naor by Justine Plichra-Jendzio promises brutal fantasy with it's cover. And it delivers. These three tales take place in a dark world of demons and damned souls and just all-around evil. Damned Children of Naor consists of three separate stories that are all set in the same world. They're listed as chapters as this book is part of a bigger series, but they're written to be standalone stories.

Book Review: "Aliens: Earth Hive" by Steve Perry

After loving Prometheus and being baffled by fan hatred towards it, I decided to look into Alien novels. Which brought me to Steve Perry's Alien3 ignoring novel Earth Hive. And because of all the news and rumours about the Prometheus sequel, I was inspired to write this review.

TV Review: Comedy Bang! Bang!

Thank Jesus Christ for Netflix! Without it I never would have discovered this amazing show. It's called Comedy Bang! Bang! and it's a breath of fresh air.

Book Review: The City & The City by China Mieville

Ever since I read China Mieville's Embassytown I've been hesitant to read another of his books. It was such a unique and important novel that I didn't know what to make of it. I know I loved it, but I had never read anything like it before. I needed time to digest it.

Well, I have finally read another of China Mieville's works. The novel is called The City & The City, and it is definitely a Mieville novel.

Book Review: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Cloud Atlas is a book that poses as something more then it is. I was expecting a deep, meaningful mindbender. Instead I ended up disappointed by a collection of narrative exercises that falls flat on its promise to to different.
