The Sapphire Sirens, by John Zakour
Publisher: DAW Books
Pub Date: December 2009
Reviewer: Joshua Palmatier
This is the seventh book in this series, and apparently it's going to be the last as well. Which is unfortunate, because I also thought it was the best book in the series. These are basically riffs off of the 50s pulp science fiction and detective fiction novels, hence the riffy covers. They're humorous, filled with action ...Published on March 2, 2012 @ 5:52 AM Number of Views: 586

Review by Dave Felts
I debated about posting a review of The Grey on SFReader, since the movie doesn't really fall under the banner of speculative fiction, but I decided why not? It's my site after all.

Rollerball (2002), rated PG-13

Review by Dave Felts
Netflix streaming is a mixed blessing. Nice because it's incredible easy to browse through hundreds of movies in mere minutes, not nice because this makes it way too simple to kick off a movie I'd probably otherwise never watch, thus wasting my life.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1 by Alan Moore
Reviewed by Paul Weiss
Publisher:America's Best Comics
Year Published: 2002
Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill stand on the shoulders of the giants who preceded them!
THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, VOL 1 is a graphic novel. It is most assuredly not a comic book intended for children. Rather it is solid proof that mainstream comic books can be combined with exciting, imaginative adventure and story-telling, illustrated with serious, skilled artwork that merits close examination in each and every panel aimed at serious adult readers with eclectic tastes in classic literature. THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, VOL1 is at once a pastiche and a tribute to the skills of an extraordinary, lengthy and almost bewildering list of adventure, mystery and horror writers of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. ...
