Current state

Russia's war with Ukraine continues. Our thoughts continue with the acquaintances made, and remembering the experiences had, at the 2006 Eurocon and 2013 Eurocon in Kyiv, Ukraine, in this difficult time. We are particularly thinking of our ISP and sponsorship person, Boris in Kyiv.  (Like/share SF solidarity with Ukraine on Facebook and/or Twitter.) Currently in Kyiv there are fairly regular power cuts.

This site has now topped the three thousand page mark. They do ramp up over the decades...


New up...

Just up is 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 and well worth sitting down with a mug of tea/coffee for a few minutes read. (The afore link is to our archive of past stories, so feel free to have a browse. Enjoy.)
