2. A Place of Execution - Book Review
This is an unusual book for McDermid for two reasons. Firstly, it's totally stand-alone and doesn't fit with any of her series. Even more unusual is the structure. It's not one book, it's two.Or possibly three.     A Place of Execution

3. I Am The Cheese - Book Review
I Am The Cheese is often categorised as a book for young people. It deserves a wider audience than that. Yes, the protagonist is a teenager and yes, the book is written in fairly straightforward English, but what's wrong with that? The main point of any novel is to tell a good story and Cormier c...

6. Bling Jewelry
Bling is all about shiny shiny metal and glittering gemstones. Some people find it gaudy and tasteless - others are captivated by it. This page is, of course, aimed at the lattter.

10. Pixel Juice - Book Review
I assume that you've read Jeff Noon's first novel, Vurt? You haven't? Then go and buy it tomorrow. No, make that today. Vurt is a great book. It's hard work and takes a lot of getting in to but is worth the effort. Noon's following novels expand on parts of his world, adding to its depth without ...

13. Wedding Customs
Our modern Western wedding customs are an integral part of our culture. We all know that the bride dresses in white, that we throw confetti after the service and that the bride and groom go on a honeymoon.   But why? Why do we do these things? Where did the customs and traditions originate? What ...
How-To & Education - Sun, 09 Dec 2007 08:34:05
14. Cleopatra
Cleopatra VII of ancient Egypt still holds a fascination for us today. Why is this? Perhaps it's because of legendary strength and beauty, the way she ruled so powerfully. Perhaps it's because of the exciting stories that surround her life and times. Perhaps it's the influence of the movie portra...

15. The Master
The Master  is one of Doctor Who's oldest and greatest enemies, an evil Time Lord who is almost as brilliant as the Doctor himself. New fans of Doctor Who know him in the guise of John Simm, however he goes back much further than this. This page will introduce you to a little of the history of th...

16. Doctor Who
I 've been a fan of Doctor Who since watching the very first episode in my high chair at the age of one! Despite all the changes to cast, format and style the essence of the show remains: an iconoclastic hero exploring the universe and battling evil. On this page I intend to share my love for the...

Mac OSX is a wonderful operating system. It's easy to use, looks good and - most importantly - it just works.

19. Doctor Who - The Doctors
Those people who only discovered Doctor Who in the 21st century may be surprised to learn that the programme began way back in 1963.

20. Lenses by Trevorm
This page is a "meta-lens" on which I'm going to organise all my other lenses. I've learned from experience that it's easier to be organised if I start earlier rather than trying to add a system late in the day!Just for fun, I'll make each category into a Plexo so that you can vote  the pages up ...

22. Online Book Reviews
I read. A lot. Sometimes I feel the urge to comment on what I've read. This page contains links to a number of book reviews I've written over the years, some of which have previously appeared online at other sites but have now been moved to squidoo. Enjoy!   Image: How to Write Book Reports 4E (H...

23. The Tooth Fairy - Book Review
Despite critical acclaim, award-winning author Graham Joyce has never received the recognition he deserves. Perhaps this is because his books are difficult to categorise; they sit somewhere in between the literary mainstream and the less fashionable fantasy genre. Or perhaps it's because his work...
arts-and-design - Mon, 10 Dec 2007 07:33:13
24. Piggies
Piggies is a book for "young adults" (that dreadful phrase always reminds me of The Young Ones...). Whilst it is Gifford's first novel for this age range, he has previously written dark fiction for adults under a different name. It shows. Piggies is a dark and unpleasant book that will unsettle m...

25. The Bridge - Book Review
The Bridge is based on an intriguing concept: extra-terrestrial contact gone wrong. The story starts with an alien race deciding to try and contact other planets. They send out a huge number of automated "pods" all designed to communicate with any sentient life they might encounter. Eventually on...

27. Diamonds
Diamonds, we used to be told, are a girl's best  friend. Since the advent of bling the gender barrier has well and truly been broken with both men and women getting iced up. Diamonds - natural ice, synthetics and simulants - are now cool for everyone.  Let's sparkle!    Image: 14k White or Yellow...

28. The Greatest Robot Ever
I've loved  robots since I was a kid. Even now, at an age when I should know better, I still buy robot toys and stuff. Everything from collectible old tin robots to plastic movie tie-ins stuffed with electronics.But this page isn't just about toy robots, its about all robots from all genres. Book...

29. Playing The Moldovans At Tennis
My first reaction to the mere existence of this book by British comedian Tony Hawks was one of extreme scepticism - and not merely because of my total lack of interest in football, tennis or almost any other sport. Round Ireland With A Fridge was a brilliant book, not least because of its uniquen...

30. The Eyre Affair - Book Review
Welcome to Britain in 1985. Except that this is a slightly different version of Britain. In this 1985 the Crimean War is still underway; genetically re-engineered dodos are popular pets; and the Government is facing public riots over a proposed increase in the cheese tax.Welcome to the bizarre wo...

32. The Greatest Love Songs Ever
Countless songs have been written about love and romance, both the joys and the pains. Choosing a single greatest is probably impossible, if only because it varies not just with the listener but with their mood. The best love song when you've just met someone new will be very different to the son...

33. Billy Liar - Book Review
Billy Liar was published in 1959 and is set in 1950s Yorkshire. Much has changed in the fifty years or so since then, but the human condition remains the same.Picture: Billy Liar
arts-and-design - Sat, 15 Dec 2007 06:13:48
34. The Puppet Show - Book Review
One of my favourite films is The Haunting; the original 1963 version, not the risible remake. Why? Because it's a horror film where until the very end nothing happens. The result is far more frightening than any number of dead bodies. The Puppet Show is a psychological thriller in the same mould....

35. Dora's Room - Book Review
 Fern Mary Miller is an orphan. She lives in a small house in Bristol with Dring, her nursemaid since she was a child, and Paula, her American friend and lodger. She is quiet, unadventurous and lives a safe, predictable life. To be frank she is inexperienced, naive and boring! Then out of the blu...

36. The Mother Tongue - Book Review
The Mother Tongue should be the perfect book for me. I'm a great fan of Bryson's humour writing and he's an American who understands the British psyche - hence the hilarity of Small Island. Add to that the fact that I'm the sort of sad geek who loves cryptic crosswords and you have a perfect reci...

37. Abba - The Band and The Music
Abba - Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeusm, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog - were pop in its purest form. Even today, more than 30 years on, their music  and songs  still make people get up and dance. People still buy their records. Catchy tunes and singalong lyrics make the songs timeless p...

38. Sweeney Todd
In many ways Sweeney Todd (sometimes spelt Sweeny) is an early example of an urban legend. He's a character who probably didn't exist but might well have done, an amalgam of the fears and nightmares of the people of the time. Some people have argued that a real Todd - or at least a single inspira...

39. Kitt
The cult 1980s TV show Knight Rider is famous for two things. One is David Hasselhoff, the other is his car: Kitt 2000.   There are plenty of websites for fans of David Hasselhoff. This page is for fans of Kitt. Roll on 2008 and the new show.   Picture: Knight Rider - Season One DVD

41. Plato
Plato is probably one of the few philosophers whose name is known by almost anyone. Although some of his ideas seem simple at first glance they still address the fundamental questions at the heart of all philosophy. A knowledge of Plato's works is essential for any student of philosophy. Anyone w...

42. Dalek Video Showcase
Of all the evil monsters that Doctor Who has battled his greatest enemies are undoubtedly the ruthless Daleks. They are also one of the reason's for the show's success - the introduction of the Daleks in 1963 caused a surge of interest in the programme. On this page I'll share some of my favourit...

43. The Easter Bunny
The concept of the Easter Bunny is an easy one to understand: he's a giant, magical rabbit who brings chocolate eggs once a year. Hmm. Maybe is isn't quite so easy to understand after all. This page will introduce you in more detail to the Easter bunny along with some of the theories as to his or...

44. Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination by Helen Fielding
Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination appears to be Helen Fielding's attempt to escape from the repressive (albeit profitable) genre of Bridget Jones and associated chick fic. Instead she has moved up to the more mature genre of thriller - specifically the comedy spy spoof. It's difficult ...

When most people think of The Beach they probably remember the 2000 movie with Leonardo DiCaprio. Well, I've still never seen the movie - this is a review of  the original Alex Garland novel.   Image: The Beach Region 1 DVD

46. The Straw Men - Book Review
"Michael Marshall" is in fact "Michael Marshall Smith", author of the brilliant Only Forward as well as several other works of speculative fiction. In a cunning plan worthy of Iain (M) Banks he has decided on the pseudonym Michael Marshall to indicate a change of genre.   Image: Straw Men

47. Killing Me Softly - Book Review
If I'd picked this book up without knowing the author, I'd probably have binned it after about fifty pages. However I've read and enjoyed Nicci French before and know that "she" (actually "they") can produce compulsive stories.So I decided to give French the benefit of the doubt and stick with th...
