This is the third “Tom Buckingham” story and a follow on from the previous “Fortress”. I was underwhelmed by Fortress and had forgotten most of it before I picked this up. It took me a while to remember and re-connect with a story that has Britain at ...more

Galaxy Quest by Erik Burnham
Rate this book

Galaxy Quest was a film that was both clever and funny, gently poking fun at the Sci-fi fanbase while also making a witty mainstream sci-fi comedy. To replicate that in graphic form was always going to be a challenge but this does a good job. It take ...more

Interesting one this, although I have to admit I have jumped into a middle of a series and that carries a slight disadvantage. Anyway this is quite timely what with the Scottish independence referendum in 2014, but it is set in the future where count ...more

Saker is a priest but also a spy for his religious leader. He has the skills but a slightly immature attitude that usually ends up with him getting into a fair bit of

I was expecting to enjoy this a lot more than I did. I think the trouble was that it is packed full of damaged characters and it was very hard to either like or emphasise with them. From memory the main character’s landlady was the only positive char ...more
