I just finished reading and reviewing this book a few days ago. Here is my review. Deficiency by S.C. Eston is a fully developed vision into the future of mankind that is both thrilling and terrifying in its impact.

The main characters, Artenz and Keidi are an average young couple who exist in a mostly artificial world created by a network of corporations. Artenz sister, Detel is a scientist who has been doing forbidden research. When Detel goes missing, Artenz and Keidi … Continue reading Deficiency – Book Review

Books about the end of the civilized world are one of my favorite sub genres of science fiction to read. I’ve read about everything from nuclear war to alien invasion that causes it all.

Below are six of my favorites, all of which I highly recommend. I want to be clear that I do not think this kind of scenario is about to happen in the … Continue reading 6 Great Novels about Pandemics
The classic book Emma is one of Jane Austen‘s most beloved classics, by book readers and movie goers alike. It’s second only to Pride & Prejudice in it’s popularity. Emma and P & P are both remade by Hollywood or the British BBC every 10 to 20 years. A brand new version of Emma was recently released to the movie going public, starring Anya Taylor-Joy, so I thought it might be a good time to give some pointers on which of the Emma adaptations is the best of the best. They’re all good entertaining movies which makes it a difficult task to … Continue reading Emma Movies – Which is the Best?

Reviewed by Scott Cahan Random Walk by Rachel Lulich is a hard science fiction novel with heart. It effectively balances scientific detail with characters that are easily relatable and likable. The story follows a three-person crew of astronauts as they attempt the first manned mission to Mars. Though the astronauts are the number one focus of the book, the crew on the ground play an equally important role. I won’t give away the plot but suffice it to say, things do not go as planned and the crew of the Pioneer finds themselves in some serious trouble. As soon as … Continue reading Random Walk – Book Review
I’ve become a big fan of podcasts. Fin’s Revolution is as the top of my favorites list, and I couldn’t help but want to share this rare find with my readers. It’s by the author of two novels called Fiddler’s Gun and Fiddler’s Green. His name is Pete Peterson, and in the podcast he’s reading his books. Pete has a great voice for reading and he’s actually very good at doing different voices for each character. It’s as well produced as most audiobooks, but it’s presented here in podcast form. The title Fin’s Revolution is the title he’s given the … Continue reading Fin’s Revolution – Great Podcast
