Welcome to my website

Hello and thank you for visiting my site.

Steve Aldous, December 2020

On my Blog I will add comment, reviews or short essays on subjects of interest including films, TV, books and music. My main literary interest is crime fiction and I have an extensive library of books. I will also add reviews as I watch new films or re-watch old ones. I have seen upwards of 5,000 films to date and have a personal library of over 2,000.

I will also share details of and extracts from My Writing including short stories, novels, articles and factual books.

I have written the book The World of Shaft, which was published by McFarland & Co. on 28 September 2015 and is a guide to the adventures of Ernest Tidyman’s iconic detective both in print and on screen. There is a dedicated Guide to Shaft section on this site, which provides information on the books, films and TV series as well as new work, written by David F. Walker, published through Dynamite Entertainment.

My latest book, The Songs of Genesis, covers the band’s entire career song by song and was published in April 2020.

I hope you find the site informative and entertaining. Please feel free to send me your comments and suggestions.
