Newish reviews

I've got a new review up at Green Man Review. Histories of the Future: Studies in Fact, Fantasy and Science Fiction is a collection of essays published by Palgrave in 2000. There's some cool stuff contained therein, including fascinating essays by Ken MacLeod and Damien Broderick. There's also an illuminating one on the phenomenon of "Battleship Boys" novels from the turn of the century--last century, when Teddy Roosevelt was bully on everything and nobody knew what a World War was. There are also a bunch of droning academic pieces in there that read like, well, droning academic pieces.

I've also go a review up over at RevSF on The Phoenix and the Carpet DVD. It's a pretty bare-bones release of the BBC miniseries version of the E. Nesbit book, and I talk about what works and what doesn't in my review (which, come to think of it, is pretty much the definition of a review, isn't it?).
