This week Steve brings back—in honour of Shark Week—a column from six years ago about the SYFY movie Sharknado. Does it hold up? Maybe we’ll all have to watch it to find out!
The Librarians and The Lost Lamp by Greg Cox is a fitting companion to the popular television series, filling that agonizing void until the show returns for its second season in November.
Canada Day, Steve’s 150th post for Amazing and – attack of the killers from space!
