    Fanfiction: DooM – The Fires of Phobos, Chapter 2

The upper level held tall mainframes for storing data, the lower level had two rows of long computer stations, flanking a spacious work table with six thrones set around it, several data sheets, a few styluses, and some coffee […]

    Flagship – A Captain’s Crucible

    Loved it! OK that’s it – you can stop right here if you want the pure unvarnished truth about my feelings on this book.  However if you want to know why … well, continue reading! 🙂 I think you all know by now that I’m a bit of a geek and a SciFi nerd.  I’m […]

    Star Trek Enterprise: Daedalus, vol. 1 & 2

    Star Trek – Enterprise, Daedalus & Daedalus’s Children I tried to enjoy this story, but it was an unpleasant experience for me. It starts with the Enterprise NX01 crew investigating an anomaly in a distant system. They visit the system to study the anomaly and they suffer a swift invasion by the system’s inhabitants and […]

    The Awesome Mr. Lovecraft: when worlds and cats collide

    Howard Phillips Lovecraft, born 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island is generally referred to as one of the founding fathers of Science Fiction (and steam punk), with his most monumental work being ‘The Call of the Cthulhu’. Being somewhat of a weirdo and an eccentric, Lovecraft had a bias towards the overly dramatic, strange, nether-worldly, alien, […]

    100 Reasons to Watch “The 100” ÷ 2, Part 1/2

    Yep. I’ll admit it. I love The 100. I was deeply ashamed of this statement during the first two seasons that I concealed it around the water cooler crowd. I mean, this is coming from a guy who shamelessly wore flared jeans in high school… think about that faux-pas for a sec. *Nods with raised […]

    Fanfiction – DooM: The Fires of Phobos, Chapter 1

    Chapter I After launching away from the Deimos moon base, the small escape pod sailed along the orbit of the red planet, a small metallic sliver in the dark vastness of space. On board, some of UAC’s top-level researchers watch as Deimos disappears before their eyes. Empty space crawled along the craterous surface, enveloping meter […]

    Moon Wreck: Fleet Academy (The Slaver Wars 3)

    Probably the book I enjoyed the least in the series as while it continued the Slaver Wars story very closely & kept our favorite characters close, it had too many elements that just simply didn’t make sense and were completely illogical. As I’ve just mentioned this one has the same core key characters however the […]

    Expand your expectations with “The Expanse”

    Having gone to school for Television Writing, I have a decently sizeable social circle of snobby boob tube connoisseurs. One would assume that some discourse surrounding Syfy’s The Expanse would be generated in the vicinity of my presence (A.K.A. Facebook)… But no one’s talking about it! I suppose it should come as no surprise. Who […]

    Moon Wreck: The Slaver Wars (Book 2)

    Continuing on from the quite interesting Slaver Wars: Alien Contact, Moon Wreck takes us in a completely different direction than the one I was expecting.  This time, we’re not exposed immediately to a resurgence in the war against the Hocklyn Slave Empire – instead we’re exposed to an Earth not too far in the future […]

    Fanfiction: DooM – Ultimate Experiment, Chapter 13

    Chapter XIII – Devil in the Dark From there they only met some light resistance, soon they made it to the structure. It was a writhing blob of orange and red flesh, the discoloration of veins protruded lightly from below its surface. Surrounding it was a moat of bubbling blood (or what looked like it), […]
