Latest Reviews

David Shipley's Full Metal Planet - October 31, 2006 - by SiL

"You know from the moment that you see 'Oracle' in the writing credits, you're in for something freaking weird. Something that contains act which, in another place or time, would've been deemed illegal and got the writer killed in some hideous way or another."

The Abduction - August 22, 2006 - by SiL

"'The Abduction's story is simple enough, opening with little Yekee and her mother sitting down to dinner one normal, albiet fittingly foreboding, day. When they finish, everything pretty much goes straight to hell - do not pass go, do not collect a hundred dollars - when a silver space-ship plants itself in the center of their yard."

Six Brainless Fools - February 15, 2006 - by SiL

"Say hello to Six Brainless Fools: Only One Can Emerge Victorious, the wet-yourself-funny story about a bunch'a brainless fools stuck together for two weeks in the Big Daddy house. It's not too short, not too long, and never loses its pace - all good things. Because of the setup, however, with both the characters and the story, most of the jokes can be seen coming some way off."

Can I Face Down this Horror? - January 31, 2006 - by SiL

"Every work of fiction has a plot. It's the thing that makes it a work of fiction. However, I'd have to say Can I Face Down This Horror? is a more like a scenario than a story. The beginning, middle, and end are all easily identifiable, yet it would be easy to see the story as having no formal structure, instead just being the introduction, middle, or end of something bigger."

Progg: Living in the Fridge - January 14, 2006 - by SiL

"I was going to refrain from doing a Bob and Progg issue, but after rereading this gem, it really did just need to be reviewed, and it's still technically literature.

Real Alien - December 28, 2005 - by SiL

"What attracted me to this was the fact it didn't rush into the action, considering its length. Split into three parts, the first half of the first third tells us about the Alien, and sets that side of the scene. The end of part one and all of part two are dedicated to setting the human side up, as well as giving some background and the human view of what happened long ago."

AvP Extinction: The Story - December 20, 2005 - by SiL

"Despite the fact the story is, essentially, exactly the same as the game, one cannot help but feel that itís entirely different, simply because of its execution. Itís absurd comedy applied to something absurd comedy thrives on, like bum-fluff on bums, yet keeps itself from becoming more of the same."

Working Shifts - December 13, 2005 - by SiL

"Let me start off by saying that itís been far too long since Iíve read a halfway decent Alien/Predator story. Many these days have childish, poorly thought-out, or rushed stories. Working Shifts, however, seems to be the opposite."
