Star Legions is back, and looking better than ever. You’ve been telling me for months now that you want to see more of these books, and to see Xenophon and his comrades back into action. Well, the wait is over. I’m stuck in the middle of writing the first book in the new series. It is set right after the events of the last book, and after the return of the Ten Thousand after their epic journey through the Median Empire.Continue reading
Ah…where to begin. Well, did I like it? Yes. Did I love it? No. If you want to know more, read on!
I love the original trilogy and despise the prequels. The basic story in Episodes II-III is solid enough, but the execution is dire from start to end. Episode I has no merit of any kind, and can be entirely skipped for no loss to any of the series. Now, jumping back to this millennium and we get the new trilogy, kicked started by The Force Awakens. I had issues with parts of TFA, but overall I enjoyed the film and the new starting point. The heroes of old are still here, with Leia doing her big leading the military of the resistance. Han is up to his old tricks, and Luke has exiled himself after some great debacle that makes him lose his students, and his nephew. The Republic loses its capital and its fleet, and the First Order are about to begin their campaign to rule the galaxy. The first time we meet Kylo, he’s tough, powerful and merciless. Later we see him for the conflicted young man that he really is.

Sky Legions of Khartoum Yes, you heard it right. This is a brand new series I’m working on as part of a TV pitch.

Everybody deserves to know how the story ends. Me included! This poll will be active for a week, so get involved!
I saw both Guardians of Galaxy films at the cinema, and on both occasions have felt more than a little underwhelmed. I kept hearing that the first was the new Star Wars, and upon seeing it though much the same as I did about Iron Man 2. It was entertaining, but ultimately disappointing. After repeated viewings the first films has grown on me, and though by now means Star Wars, it is definitely a solid film, and worthy of rewatching. The same cannot be said of Vol.2.
