Primeval: It’s exactly what you’d expect

(The is the first of a short series of old posts retrieved from NFI’s predecessor, Neverscapes. Look out for the remaining posts over the coming week.) So, the first series of ITV’s new dinosaur & giant bug time-travel-thriller is over and, since I was fool enough to watch all six episodes, I thought I’d offer […]

R.I.P. Neverscapes

March 13th 2007 – July 27th 2007 Died of neglect. As my first attempt at a serious blog Neverscapes was doomed to failure from the outset, but I learned a bit about PHP and blogging from trying it and it was good fun for a while. I left it up after I started Nostalgia For […]

F3: Releasing Moments

Here’s my flash fiction for the last Friday of June – I hope you enjoy it. I think it may be the first thing I’ve ever written in second person so I’ll be interested to hear if you think it works. I’ve just noticed that in exactly one month I’ll have been writing F3 for […]

LJ feed problems

If you’re following NFI using the LJ feed, you may have noticed some seriously funky shit going on with the code in the autoposts. I’m not 100% sure what’s going on with the markup but I think I have an idea what it is. Hopefully there shouldn’t be any further problems…

Game Review: Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit (Xbox 360)

My review of the latest Dragon Ball Z beatem (kudos Damien Murray), Burst Limit, has gone live over at Den of Geek. I’m quite pleased with it overall. I wasn’t sure how qualified I was to review a beat-’em-up as I don’t play a huge number of them, but fortunately the game proved to be […]

ShortFic Review: Lone Star Stories #26

My review of Lone Star Stories issue 26 has been posted over at The Fix Online. It was a good issue of a webzine I’d not read before, and I was particularly taken with Jeremy Adam Smith’s novella ‘The Wreck of the Grampus‘.

R.I.P. George Carlin

It’s all bullshit people, and it’s bad for ya.

F3: Skyflowers

As with so many other weeks I had a bigger, deeper piece of flash fiction on the go, but it’s unfinished and probably wants completely rewriting anyway. So instead, have something that I wrote off the cuff today. Hope you enjoy it! .


The link post that appeared last night is a mess. I know about this, and I am racking my brains trying to figure out what’s happened. The code appears just fine in the WP editor, so I can only assume some part of it doesn’t work with the Nobus theme. Although why it wouldn’t […]

Page 123, Fifth Sentence

Last week Paul at Velcro City Tourist Board tagged me with a meme. The instructions: To participate, you grab any book, go to page 123, find the fifth sentence, and blog it. Then tag five people. Simple enough, I thought. The first book I tried, of course, was our own Illuminations. How could I not? […]
