Books, Television and Film

  • The Other Hand by Chris Cleave was somewhat outside my usual subject matter, read after seeing a recommendation by Roo Reynolds. Recommended, both for the story and the way it is told.
  • Oceanic by Greg Egan. Egan is on my list of “if it’s printed I’ll read it” authors. This is a good collection of short stories with his usual flair. The science can be hard, but it’s worth it.
  • Defying Gravity was an enjoyable programme, sadly cancelled after the first series - just as things were getting interesting.
  • Moon starring Sam Rockwell. Simply superb. Watch it.
