Nader Elhefnawy is the author of AFTER THE NEW WAVE: SCIENCE FICTION SINCE 1980, a study of recent science fiction, and THE MANY LIVES AND DEATHS OF JAMES BOND: FROM CASINO ROYALE TO SKYFALL, an examination of the James Bond novels and films.

He can be found online at his blog, RARITANIA (the feed from which can be seen here on his page).

Raymond Kurzweil's 1999 book The Age of Spiritual Machines remains a touchstone of futurologists and their critics not only because of Kurzweil's continuing presence within the information technology and futurology worlds, but because the book also offered multiple, lengthy, even comprehensive lists of forecasts.

Until recently I had read only one novel by William Haggard, mainly because it was conveniently available at the time--Yesterday's Enemy (discussed here).

In comparison with the rest of the vast literature on the history of the British navy, books attempting to offer a broad and detailed treatment of events since 1945 are a relative rarity. Easily one of the most ambitious is Eric Grove's Vanguard to T ...more
Outbound Flight by Timothy Zahn
"My usual caveat: I am a Timothy Zahn fanboy. I have yet to read a work of his I didn’t like. Some, of course, are better than others, but I’ve loved ‘em all. So read this review understanding that.

For those not in the know; a number of years ago,..." Read more of this review »

Erskine Childers' Riddle of the Sands is famous as the first modern spy novel, and in the view of some, even as the first modern thriller. However, as is the case with much "invasion" literature (which you can think of as a Victorian-Edwardian counte ...more
