I present these new sci-fi Kindle books not having read them, but simply having found them on Amazon, read the book summary, and am sharing it here in order of publication date, from newest to oldest.
Plot: This prequel to the Humanity Transformed series fills in the backstory for some of the main characters of those three novels. It tells a few tales of the Days of Trouble that preceded the largest mass death event in history, the Great Dieback. It hints at the dramatic occurrences during the recovery period that follows. …
The COVID-19 pandemic ruined the year for moviegoers. What was once believed to be the best year of movie releases of all-time, turned out to be a mediocre showing.
Regardless, they weren’t all bad movies last year. Some were tolerable. None stood out from another. Check out the list below, which I have ranked using IMDB ratings.

“I’m picking up a vibration…”
Quote from Siren’s Cove
When a faulty time coil destroys her ship, test pilot Lieutenant Anaya Chapman awakens with no memory of the accident and no identity. Haunted by dark images from her past she finds herself the reluctant guest of a local tavern owner on the Colonies — a small planetary settlement of old-fashioned expatriates with a thriving intergalactic tourist trade.
Tavern owner Captain John Galeas buried his wife and then his career when he didn’t return to his home planet.
Rumors of John’s past continue to swirl when a beautiful stranger with a…
I read a ton of books in 2020. Well, 68, to be exact. A.W. Davidson’s Relics of Dawn was the best book I read all year. Mind-blowing is an understatement.
A dark city skyline filled the display. The camera panned across the towering buildings of downtown Tremva to the trash-laden harbor, where crowded refugee ships sat low in the water, streaming toward the open ocean. The broadcast zoomed in on a long pier, where Kaia knew the deconstruction was about to begin.
Author A.W. Davidson’s first novel, Relics of Dawn: A Story Carved in Time is a rare gem among…
I finally got around to watching Ridley Scott’s Raised by Wolves on HBO Max last week and I ended up binge-watching the entire season. It was that good. The show felt like the Ridley Scott of Alien (1979) and Bladerunner (1982) was back in full-force.
Raised by Wolves follows two androids, Father (Amanda Collin) and Mother (Abubakar Salim), responsible for raising human children on an unsettled planet named Kepler-22b. The androids’ programming requires they raise the children as atheists and to establish the first colony on the planet.
There’s a deep, violent backstory to the setting of the show. Earth…
All Alien movie franchise fans should rejoice that this book, Alien: Out of the Shadows, exists. Who knew it was possible to create another horrifying adventure for everyone’s favorite protagonist, Ellen Ripley, between the events of (1979) and Aliens (1986)? Well, let me assure you, it’s not only possible but makes for a great read.
She dreams of monsters, stalking the corridors of her mind and wiping faces from memory before she can even remember their names.
In betweeen these dreams lies a simple void of shadows. …
Close your eyes and imagine an adventure where a brilliant scientist, two covert agents, a space ship captain, and a sentient AI crystal attempt to save the world from an impending attack from an alien spacecraft. Now open your eyes. Welcome to Crystal Deception.
Expectations were through the roof for this new release from Crystal Fab. The four-gen prototype was so advanced, it should have the thinking and reasoning capability of more than a thousand human brains.
Author Doug J. Cooper created a masterpiece work of science fiction full of original concepts and characters with an action-packed, fast pace that’ll…
1982. What a fantastic year for science fiction fans. Steven Spielberg’s E.T. won the year by breaking box office records and receiving widespread acclaim. Two weeks after Spielberg’s movie premiered, Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner and John Carpenter’s The Thing hit the box office. What unfortunate timing.
In my humble opinion, E.T. doesn’t stand the test of time. However, both Blade Runner and The Thing age like a fine wine. Since it’s nearly winter, I decided to focus on a cold-weather themed movie: The Thing.
According to sci-fi media insider Giant Freakin Robot, news from Disney’s post-Investor conference includes a rumor that the media conglomerate may be looking to reboot the fan-favorite sci-fi series Disney made many announcements during their recent Investor Day conference. However, nary a whisper was uttered about Firefly. The former Fox-owned property moved into Disney’s hand when they acquired Fox in 2019.
I don’t know about you, but I only subscribe to Disney+ for their Marvel and Star Wars content. Yes, and some of their older Disney classic movies. But beyond that, Disney+ lacks the diversity of other streaming giants like…
Science fiction writers invented some of the best technology we as a society could desire. One caveat, though, I’m still waiting for my flying car; just saying. But not every technological invention gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling, am I right? Some are down-right creepy. Others may not come across as that scary until you lift the veil and understand how the technology works. We, as humans, are far past our days of living in caves and fearing saber-tooth tigers. Yet, we still fear the unknown. The sci-fi genre lives — thrives — in this strange realm. …
