    Science fiction roundup: 'Galapágos Regained,' more
    Galapágos Regained by James Morrow, St. Martin's, 477 pages, $28.99 For more than two decades, James Morrow has enjoyed a reputation as science fiction's premier religious satirist, largely because of his "Godhead Trilogy" — which began with the...
  • In memoriam

    In 2014, the Peninsula marked the deaths of many citizens who left indelible marks on our community. Not all of them were famous, but they lived lives that benefited those around them. As the year draws to a close, we would like to remember a few of them....

    The Biblioracle: A new year with an old West
    I understand how New Year's Day is supposed to work, that it is a time of renewal, for looking forward with promise and hope. But I go the opposite way. New Year's is the time I look back on the year just passed and think, "Welp, that's 365 days...
  • Review: 'The Martini Shot' by George Pelecanos

    Review: 'The Martini Shot' by George Pelecanos
    George Pelecanos is widely considered to be one of the best crime novelists going, but he's never fit all that comfortably into the genre. His writing is properly hard-boiled, his heroes are attractively flawed and his villains leave trails of blood...

  • To this Gen-X South Sider, 2015 feels like science fiction

    Maybe the best thing about the year 2015 is the cool sci-fi ring it has. In 2015, cars drive themselves, songs and pictures can be sent wirelessly through the air to hand-held gadgets and a black former law professor is near the end of his second term...
  • 'Woman in Black' comes into the light for this unscary sequel

    The first wide release of 2015 is a deathly dull affair, a pointless, passionless ghost story sequel that lacks the one big thing the original film's star provided empathy. There's no Daniel Radcliffe in "Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death," and thus no...

  • Paul Greenberg: It's always a shock

    By now the cast of thousands all know their well-worn roles. And so does the national audience, which has seen this pageant performed again and again. The whole production has become as familiar as an old standard in the repertory of an opera company....
  • Reel Critics: 'Woods' is lovely, dark and deep
