    To start with, I must admit, while I am somewhat excited to hear about the future for ‘Game of Thrones’ over on HBO, I am very annoyed to learn that George R.R. Martin is spending time on ANYTHING other than finishing ‘Winds of Winter.’  If he is actively working with a number of writers on […]

    In the world of magic, particularly JK Rowling’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the spell “evanesco” will make an object disappear.  Today, however, a news story comes our way that isn’t a fun use of a vanishing spell: a one-of-a-kind Harry Potter prequel story written by Rowling herself has been stolen in London. The story […]

    It’s no secret that ‘Game of Thrones,’ based on the written works of prolific author George R.R. Martin, is kind of a big deal and a huge financial success for HBO.  Surprising no one, then, other TV networks are starting to mine Martin’s back-catalog of “other” works of fiction.  SyFy has landed on ‘Nightflyers,’ based […]

    For today’s Throwback Thursday, ScienceFiction.com’s ongoing column dedicated to the great science fiction of the past, I thought I would do a horror story, and that is “Computers Don’t Argue” by Gordon R.

  • Book Review: ‘Relics’ By Tim Lebbon

    While Tim Lebbon has long been a go-to author for his adaptations and work in film properties such as for ‘Kong: Skull Island’ and a variety of ‘Alien’ novels, it is his standalone works that I’ve always felt have stood out. In ‘Relics’ that trend tends to continue as we have a solid fantasy horror […]

Coming out about a decade ago, when it was firmly in sorta-canon upon its […]

    Adult coloring books are all the rage right now, and their goal is to help you relieve stress. I have to ask, what better way to do that than coloring in Xenomorphs who are either slaughtering humans or poor souls which are being infected by chest bursters?
