Most recently added (mid-March) is the first of four one-page, short, SF story PDFs of the year that are our selection of among the best of Nature 'Futures' stories of 2018. (Meanwhile, an archive of our past choices as to 'Best of Nature 'Futures'' is here.) Enjoy.
Late-April will see our edition for the summer*. Note, this is a little later than our usual mid-April posting date. This is because Easter is late this year and so is the announcement of this year's Hugo Award short-list, which we always report. We plan to post 25th April (irrespective of whether the Hugo administrators have made their announcement). However, some early article and review postings will be linked to from, and for our few die-hard followers on, Twitter.
* 'Summer' here being the northern hemisphere, academic year summer.
The edition for the summer will contain the usual large SF & science news page covering books, film, television and publishing as well as general science, the biosciences and space sciences. Additionally, there will be: another in our series of scientist cum professional SF author articles on their top ten science heroes; a 52-week cinema box office analysis of the top SF/F/H films of the year to Easter; and our annual science and SF, exotica whimsy round-up from Gaia.
Meanwhile, hopefully you should find something below to tickle your fancy...
