Review: A Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill

This book came as a recommendation by Amazon and this time, the recommendation algorithm worked (usually it is a wee bit off the mark). Right from the start, I was hooked. Before the first chapter are two brief excerpts from popular works of famous authors. One by Ray Bradbury and …

Stranger Things Season 3 – Blasphemous Mother of Cthulhu!

This review contains minimal spoilers! What a ride! After two very impressive seasons I was more than curious what the third season would bring and I speculated about it two post earlier. My speculation was not correct, which is a good thing. The third season really delivers on all fronts: …

Review: Apequest by Professor Elemental

My dear Professor Elemental, how do you do it? Father of Invention, your previous album was already a masterpiece, and now Apequest… But I am getting ahead of myself here. As I have pointed out in the previous review of Professor Elemental’s work, I am not much into hiphop and …

Review: Victor Sierra – Go for the Strange

The third full album of Victor Sierra and the third I am going to review and this is getting ridiculous. OK, disclaimer, I supported the fundraiser, Victor Sierra is one of my favourite bands (and their song Mastermind is one of my all time favourite songs) and Commander Bob is …

Review: The SEA is Ours: Tales of Steampunk Southeast Asia

This is the aforementioned Steampunk from Asia Part II. As you may have noticed by the amount of book features I post, I get a lot of review requests recently, most of which I have to turn down because of time constraints. I do literature reviews on request only in …

Review: Babymetal – Babymetal

Three Japanese teenage girls making heavy metal music, if this scenario sounds weird to you, well, it sounded weird to me when I was first introduced to the band a few months ago. Just a bit of background on the band: Babymetal is a constructed band, the members are all …

Review: Lego Space – Building the Future

In 1979 I got my first Lego Space toy, it was the classic moon buggy. I have been a fan of Lego Space ever since, although I still strongly prefer the classic series and some of the late 1990’s releases did not really strike my fancy. Anyway, the other day …
