Happy birthday to us, Happy birthday to us...  As of Easter we were 30 years old.

New up...

Most recently posted we have our autumnal edition. (Well, autumnal in our northern hemisphere, but we're sure our southern friends work it out.)  Its large-ish seasonal news page has 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.

This is the last seasonal edition in this our 30th year of SF² Concatenation doing SF.  This is something that could not have happened without the support of its team and the current band of contributors . If back in 1987, and our first (print) edition, anyone had said we'd still be around the best part of a third-of-a-century later then none of us would have believed it.  Looking forward we do plan to continue for a few years so as to reach this one-third-century mark. After that we'll see.


Your good deed, possibly?

Samuel R. Delany journal campaign needs your support.  We have coverage within this season's news page.



Mid November we will have the third 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.  And then mid-December a pre-Christmas treat with the last of our 'Futures' selection for the year.

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