I’m a self-published author of (mostly) sci-fi, and my ebook sales go up and down, pretty much at random. I have noticed that if I get a new review, my sales are likely to hop up, and they also sink when I haven’t put a new book out in a while, but other than that they just tend to noodle a little higher sometimes and a little lower at others.
Almost everything I talk about on this site is connected in some way to sci-fi. One reason for this is that I do not want Google to be confused about what this site is – most of my visitors come from Google, after all – but the more important reason is that I just love sci-fi, and everything to do with it. My deep love for sci-fi even includes sci-fi inspired music, of which there is a huge amount.
Today I’m writing about issue 243 of a comic book called 2000 AD. Inspired by the original prog slog blog, I have been rereading very early issues of this famous comic book from my youth, back in the late 70s and early 80s. One of the most powerful emotions when rereading this old comic – along with appreciation of the art, being entertained by the stories, and disappointment at the almost complete lack of diversity – is a huge helping of nostalgia.
The credits just rolled on the latest episode of Doctor Who, so I have immediately hopped onto the computer to get a blog post up about it as soon as possible. The episode is called Arachnids in the UK, which is episode four of series eleven, and again it is a very fine and entertaining piece of television. I’m so impressed that, at almost the half-way point now, this series of Doctor Who has yet to really put a foot wrong.
Top Ten of Superheroes I recently wrote a blog post about the top ten sci-fi superheroes and it got me thinking that, for perspective, and just for fun, I should commit to print my list of the absolute best superheroes of any kind, sci-fi or not. This is a very difficult and subjective business but I will not let that put me off. I am not the first brave generator of Internet content to put together such a list.

I have purposely limited what information is required to just your email address, because who wants to by typing out all their particulars just to get a junky email from a sci-fi author. Having to give your email address is imposition enough, but it is kinda’ required to even get the newsletter.
Doctor Who is back again for episode three, and maybe the best episode of the show – whether classic or revival version – that I have ever seen. From the trailer for the show, I thought it was going to be something like an episode of Timeless, but I was wrong, it is a lot more than that. It is an extremely powerful episode of TV. It starts, as usual, with those beautiful credits, that consist of little more than a blob of CGI, blossoming from the dark and pulsating like a cloud of chaos.
