Goodbye 2017, our 30th year.
We wish all our regulars the very best for the festive season. And if you are new to us, then feel free to have a good old browse around: there's plenty of SF and science interest for the most diverse of tastes while your Christmas pud digests...
Our the fourth, and final this year, of our choices as to 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. This one looks at life after the robots have won, with a clear nod to the good Doctor Isaac. Its author was the science Guest of Honour at this year's Worldcon and this is the second time we have selected an Ian Stewart 'Futures' as our choice as one of the best of the 51 published weekly at theback of the science journal Nature. (The first was 'Grandfather's Paradox'.) Hopefully it will tide you over Christmas, as in January...
Mid-January sees our usual, large-ish seasonal news page that will have sections on film, books, TV, as well as the season's forthcoming books listing of new titles from the major imprints in the British Isles, many of which will soon be available elsewhere. And then there's the news page's science as well as science and SF interface section. Additionally, there will be another in our series by scientists who are also SF authors as to their science heroes born in the 20th century (so by-passing Darwin, Einstein etc). We will have SF convention reviews of the 2017 Worldcon as well as two conventions from Spain. Plus there will be our new diary page of national and international-level conventions as well as forthcoming SF/F/H films for 2018. All this and over 40 standalone SF/F/H and science & non-fiction book reviews.
Meanwhile, with luck you should find something to tickle your fancy below...
