Retro Review: eXistenZ @ Infinispace.net

The text below the break is part of a DVD review originally published on October 28th, 1999.
Here are some updated thoughts:  Holy crap, I remember nothing about this movie.  Even re-watching the trailer sparked no memories of eXistenZ.  Nothing about the plot, characters, or if I even loved it o…

He Said, She Said: The Thirteenth Floor @ Infinispace.net

The text below the break is part of a theatrical review originally written on May 28, 1999*.
Here are some updated thoughts:  It’s a bit mind boggling that this movie was nominated for a Saturn Award.  It eventually, and justly, lost to The Matrix.  I have to be completely honest, I&#8217…

Review: Halting State by Charles Stross @ Infinispace.net

Halting State by Charles Stross was not the book I was expecting.  As a gamer and MMORPG player the book piqued my interest based on the description.  Instead of getting the intrigue of a mysterious bank heist that takes place in a game world, with virtual reality hackers infiltrating a world of …

The Samuil Petrovitch Trilogy by Simon Morden @ Infinispace.net

Never judge a book by its cover, so the mantra goes.  In the case of Simon Morden’s Samuil Petrovitch Trilogy I threw that right out the window.  There I was perusing the shelves of the local Barnes & Noble (yes, looking are real books, with words printed on real paper) when my eyes f…

The Fallacy of Persona Downloads in Science Fiction @ Infinispace.net

 
For quite some time I’ve been interested in aspects of the various singularity theories that have been floating around for years. These are not to be confused with gravitational or mass singularity (black holes) theories, but those dealing with a “technological…

Retro Review: ‘Nova’ by Samuel R. Delany @ Infinispace.net

Nova was published in 1968 before Samuel R. Delany entered his more experimental writing phase, beginning chiefly with the monstrous Dhalgren.  It’s a tale that can be consumed and interpreted in several ways.  As a mythological quest that parallels the crazed and obsessive Captain A…
