Tor’s Free eBook for February: Bloodline Feud by Charles Stross

As I am sure most of the folks who visit this blog know, for the first week of every month, TOR Books makes an ebook available as a free download. It is always an excellent book by a very good author, and this time they chose the first two volumes of The Merchant Princes series, […]

iBoy trailer

Based on the 2010 Kevin Brooks novel, Netflix’s iBoy should be a wild ride. It looks like they did it as a single movie rather than a series, and you can watch it on Friday the 27th. Yes, that does mean the end of next week.

New Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale trailer

Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale is the feature film coming to theaters later this year, continuing the saga. This trailer has the Lisa theme song as its core, and a story line based on a nightmare from VR starting to spread into reality by way of AR. Not just based on the light novels by […]

Ghost in the Shell Manga Released Digitally

Ghost in the Shell Manga is how that whole universe started, when Masamune Shirow’s original graphic novel came out. But until this month, it has never been released digitally. Now it has, with the folks at Kodansha Comics offering up Ghost in the Shell in English digital format for the first time. While you can […]

Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

I am so ready for this film, having waited what seems like a couple of decades for Blade Runner 2049. Based on a story by Philip K. Dick, if it is even half as good as the original film, it will be amazing.

Sense8 Christmas Special trailer

Netflix is posting a 2 hour Sense8 Christmas Special which will begin airing on December 23rd, J. Michael Straczynski’s story of another kind of telepathic evolution. I was also happy to hear the story will continue May 5th, 2017, with 10 new episodes. Since the trailer was posted I wanted to include it here as […]

Something to Watch: Discs

James Patterson’s bestselling YA book series Maximum Ride made the transition to movie format, but it didn’t play anywhere near me; now I get a chance to see it as they release it to DVD. The animated film Storks may be the best bet this time around, good silly fun from the studio that did […]

Something to Do: Movies

This weekend we finally get to hit the theater for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the next generation story of the Harry Potter series, and yes, that does mean its by J. K. Rowling. If you need more information than that, you are obviously just visiting this planet, and didn’t do your research […]

Happy Birthday Carl Sagan!

Today would have been Carl Sagan’s 82nd birthday, a man who was one of my primary inspirations (along with Albert Einstein, Robert A Heinlein, and Nikola Tesla). He brought an appreciation of astronomy and the cosmos to the masses, he co-founded the Planetary Society, and he wrote some amazing books and articles. Want to put […]

Something to Do: Movies

The film worth checking out this Friday is Arrival, told from the viewpoint of the linguist who is recruited by the military to assist in translating the aliens communications. I will be in the theater for this one! As far as I know this may be the first ever Ted Chiang story to be turned […]
