Phil Hornshaw's Reviews

Writing from a darkened apartment in Los Angeles, Phil Hornshaw lends his brain to thoughts on time travel and made-up science. He's an author and journalist, assuming one half of the blame for the books "So You Created a Wormhole: The Time Traveler's Guide to Time Travel" and "The Space Hero's Guide to Glory." He also wrote a trivia book about Resident Evil one time, and helps create "Paradox: The Time Travel Podcast." As a freelance writer, he primarily covers video games, and has contributed to Playboy.com, Complex Magazine, Digital Trends, Polygon, Kotaku, The Escapist, and GameFront.
