What’s up is called Gotham – and it works like crazy.

“Doctor Who: Engines of War” — A Slice of SciFi Book Review

The trickiest part of writing a tie-in novel with a movie or TV franchise is making the characters speak with the voices we have come to know on screen.

Throughout the course of the story, I could hear John Hurt’s voice in the dialogue.

“The Scribbler” — A Slice of SciFi DVD Review

Scribbler

The whole time I was watching The Scribbler it felt to me like it was aspiring to be something larger than what it was. It seemed like somebody trying to make a big budget comic book film, but having to shoot it with a home movie camera.
