Site news

A bit of a milestone with this season's edition. We have now just passed posting 2,000 standalone fiction reviews on the site.  Well, not counting a couple of years hiatus as we switched from paper to online editions, we have been going for 36 years...

New up...

Now up we have our our autumnal* season edition. It includes the season's full news page, with its Film NewsTelevision NewsPublishing NewsGeneral Science News  and  Forthcoming SF Books from major British Isles SF imprints for the season, among much else.  Seperately we have a couple of stand-alone articles and convention reports. Plus there is the usual tranche of stand-alone book reviews.  Something for every SF enthusiast and/or science bod.
* 'Autumnal' season here being the northern hemisphere, academic year autumn.

Time to sit down at the PC, open the lap top or pad and explore the news page and its links to trailers and videos as well as science papers.

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



In November we will have the third of our four 'Best of Nature "Futures" short stories' of the year, and in December a pre-Christmas final one. 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.)
