The Christmas edition of Cosmic Masque is now available for free download. I have four book reviews in this one! (Although my name only appears on three, for some reason, but I also reviewed The Showstoppers)
Owing to some bugger pulling out, I managed to get a piece into the 2017 DWAS Annual. It’s about the Doctor Who episode Ghost Light, and I don’t think it would be wrong-headed or misguided of me in any way to say that it’s the best-written piece you’ll read about Ghost Light in that annual.
Another review for Cosmic Masque, this time of J R Southall’s mammoth and wide-ranging You and Who Else. This was published to raise money for the Terrence Higgins Trust and is also a nostalgia tour through much that was great in British 70s telly.
As the rules state, the full review text is on a separate page, where it may be legible.
This is the third of my reviews for the first edition of the new, digital Cosmic Masque.

I did get a great last line out of it though.
