The countdown continues to the 30th anniversary of our former print edition's first publication way back at the 1987 British Eastercon...

New up...

Below we have the first this year of our choices of the best of last year's Nature 'Futures' SF stories. As usual it is a one-page (PDF) short story that has either a bit of a twist and/or edge.

See 'Most recently added' below.  Enjoy.



Towards the end of April we will have our Summer (northern hemisphere) edition of Science Fiction and science news.  In addition we will have two convention reports, the latest in the series of 20th century SF films (with vid links to trailers) -- this time it is the 1960s -- plus we have a look at the top box office films of 2016/7 year to Easter (again with links to trailers) together with 'other worthies', as well as the latest in our SF-author-scientists' favourite 20th century scientists series of articles.  Not to mention, our annual 'last word' of whimsy and oddities from Gaia, all above and beyond over a score of standalone book reviews.

Please note: Our summer edition will be posted towards the end of April (and not the usual mid-April posting) as Easter is late this year and we want to include the BSFA Award wins as well as the Hugo nominations making it to the short list and other SF award news.

Meanwhile, hopefully you should find something to tickle your fancy below...
