Current state

It is the start of a new year (our 35th) during which much is slated to happen. Here, among others, our thoughts are with the folk deploying the European-US James Webb Space Telescope launched before Christmas. The 300-step deployment process is due to take a month or so and each step has to work! Just try not to think about the £7.5 billion (US9.7 billion) at stake...

Meanwhile, there has been much SF and science news. More below...


New up...

Our spring* edition is now up with its full news page, articles and convention reports. Yes, conventions are coming back!  Plus there is a tranche of stand-alone book reviews. Something for everyone.
* 'Spring' season here being the northern hemisphere, academic year spring.

For details of / links to the new content, scroll down to beneath 'Most recently added' below.

Whatever your tastes in SF (literary, cinematic or television) or science (general, natural or astronomical) there should be something for every SF enthusiast and/or science bod.



Mid-March we hope to have the first of our four 'Best of Nature "Futures" short stories' of the year. If you are new to this site, these are short, one-page, SF stories. They're rather fun. (The afore link is to our archive of past stories, so feel free to have a browse. Enjoy.)

And a reminder, for the few of you who can't wait, that we provide some early access to new content as well as notifications of seasonal posting through Twitter @SF2Concat. (Early notifications only: we don't want to distract anyone with chat.)
