The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn: Colour Photographs from a Lost Age

5.0 out of 5 stars The Autochrome process that a enabled a great project, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A book that serves to place its subject matter, the stunning colour plates of Albert Kahn, at the core of its subject matter. Each image is given just enough description, to give the reader a reference point for the image, the image then tells its own story. This book is an excellent offering and supplements the BBC documentary that brought to the fore Albert Kahn’s vision to document, through living colour snapshots of a rapidly changing world. A project he financed from his own funds, his photographers travelled far and wide to deliver some of most sumptuous pictorials of the early 20th Century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story from 2000AD, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is rather funny how some things trigger memory's from the past, and this short story that appeared in 2000 AD is one them. While by today's standards it may seem - dare I say 'tame' in my youth I found it rather scary and all too realistic in its telling. The art work was of a high standard and as a comic strip that was told in episodic fashion it was very well done, as others have commented a real gem and I hope more of these get published.

4.0 out of 5 stars Varos's Punishment Dome, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the better Colin Baker Dr Who episodes, where the Doctor becomes involved in a television show where people are killed for entertainment the resulting story was much darker than originally intended. The more grim acid bath sequence was much criticised for its tone and for the Doctor's throw away remark at the end of the scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Mike, family and co the nightmare continues. For Trip he needs to get to the concert, 10 April 2014
Just finished the unabridged version of book 7 - and I am left wanting more! Clearly the story will continue into a book 8, or more? I say this as Mike, family and friends are detained on secret military base, and there other major loose ends. I don't want to expand on this as I will give away spoilers. Sufficed to say that book seven of the Zombie Fallout series pretty much picks up the action where from book 6 left off. So what you get is nice even spacing in the narrative and a continuity that on the surface of things seems to work. Like all of the books in the series, the contents is a balance of humour and action that is so perfectly merged ,that a person needs to remember not to laugh out loud whilst reading/listening(Audio book) in a public place -lest you be looked as being a crazy person. There plethora of Zombie books out, but what sets these books apart, for me anyway, are the clear use of funny anecdotes and sprinkling of great humour/sarcasm, while some reviewers have not liked the light side to these books, but I for one think they make these books. For me the narrative is original, and I am sure that Tufo's take on Zombie `lore' will be, dare I say be `copied', and become mainstay in the genre. I can say with certainty that Book 7 does not disappoint. You get memorable characters such as Trip, who needs to get to his concert fast, and new characters that will have their own back story as well as well as `future' in books to come. For me the narrative delivers, and you get to see and feel a road trip from hell. The whole series is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spooky cult classic, 9 April 2014
This review is from: The Night Stalker (Region 2) (DVD)
Based on the Kolchak Papers, this is the made for TV movie that was an instant hit. The narrative opens with Kolchak in sleazy hotel room, dictating a book into his trademark portable tape recorder, regurgitating the very strange events relating a case he just finished investigation on Las Vegas strip of a number of gruesome murders perpetrated by a vampire.

The success of the production led to a short run series as he is portrayed as a gifted investigative reporter with an attraction for unusual and paranormal occurrences, the viewer see him procuring evidence driving around Chicago in his yellow Ford Mustang convertible. Kolchak has persistently cracked several cases relying on gut instinct and often through sheer dumb luck. But more often than not, Kolchak's prospects are hindered by the complete obliteration of any or all proof to verify his claims. On other occasions his investigations have led to demotion or transfer of variable authority figures, the reasons for which are never truthfully disclosed, and hence the feeding the viewer's believe of a cover up.
As a youth I caught this film late night on the TV and found the whole movie rather spooky and scary at times. Kolchak was played by Darren McGavin, and he really brought a unique feel to the film - although I might add the Vampire was pretty spooky. The film may seem dated by today's standards but for me this was and is a cult classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong & robust, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are very useful storage boxes, and unlike other makes these are very sturdy, they have a good firm seal between lid and box. We have bought a number of these for office storage of files and other documents. Best to shop around as the current price, at time of publishing this review is quite expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Former Human Resources executive trying to survive a Zombie pamdemic, 7 April 2014
This is book five of the Zombie Fallout series and pretty much picks up the action where book one left of. So what you get nice even spacing in the narrative. These tale apart from the plethora of Zombie books out there are the clear use of funny anecdotes and sprinkling of great humour/sarcasm, some reviewers have not liked the light side to these books, but I for one think they make these books. Book 5 does not disappoint. You get memorable characters and a narrative that delivers 95% of the time, and a road trip from hell. The whole series is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good series, 7 April 2014
The narrator does an excellent job of telling the tale, and his characterisations are very well done you really get a feel for the post-apocalyptic world. The rag-tag group of survivors are pushed to the limit, again and again. What sets this tale apart from the plethora of Zombie books out there are the clear use of funny anecdotes and sprinkling of great humour. Without giving away spoilers this is a great series of books and really well told stories that are not predictable. I forget to mention. While they are alive the characters are really well rounded. If you have any interest in this type of horror genre you'll love these audio books.
