Hellraisers by Axl Rosenberg, Chris Kovatin

The Heavy Metal genre of music is quite a broad church, and trying to capture even the current state of the industry, let alone the origins of it is an ambitious task the authors have set themselves. You may well argue that they have taken some missteps along the way, and not everyone is going... Read More »

Abduction by Alan Baxter

Where do I begin with the Alex Caine series? Abduction is the third in the series, and I highly recommend following this story from the beginning, as Alan Baxter has crafted an excellent, modern urban fantasy that is laced with a fantastically dark sense of humour. I am reminded of an old website called They... Read More »

Origin by Dan Brown

Dan Brown is definitely an author I love to hate. But for some reason with each book he releases, I find myself sucked back in to see what he has decided to take on this time. I like to give him a fair shake, and try to keep an open mind when reading his books,... Read More »

Cold War Games by Harry Blutstein

The 1956 olympic games were something of a high point in Australia’s sporting history, and looking at it through the rosy lens of history and nostalgia it is easy to ignore the political, and diplomatic environment which the games took place in. As a student in history, I find it fascinating that there was all... Read More »
