Greetings of the festive season to all our visitors
New up, mid-December, is a special, festive-season themed, one-page SF story from our 'Best of' the Nature 'Futures' series.
You will have a merry Christmas and a happy new year...! (See 'Most recently added' below.) Enjoy.
Mid-January there will be the Spring 2015 edition of news, convention reports and book reviews. Here the news
page will contain our thoughts on what might possibly be among the best SF books and films of 2014. If our selections
the past years are anything to go by then there may well be a number that will go on to win some major SF awards...
(For example, here are our 'Best of ' SF/F books and
films of 2013,
and subsequent Hugo Award nominations.)
Our posting schedule is regular -- so you can see when things are due by looking at what was posted, and when, previously -- but if you want early notification of a few advance posts then join the few following us on our new Twitter thingy. (And if you yourself are on Twitter and you enjoy the site then how about your Christmas present to us being to re-Tweet our last couple of alerts?)
