New up...

Up November 2019, the third of our one-page, short, SF story PDFs for the year that are our selection of among the best of Nature 'Futures' stories of the previous year, 2018.  (An archive of our past choices as to 'Best of Nature 'Futures' is here so there are plenty of short, SF short stories for you to dip into.)  These stories are very short and so ideal either for a lunchtime or a bed time read.

A little earlier we posted our edition for the autumn*.  It has its usual large seasonal news page covering core aspects of SF (books, films and television) as well as the season's science research. (In the mix there are loads of links to short videos, so sit down with a cup of tea/coffee and dive in.)  Added to which we have a short article on CERN as an unlikely tourist attraction plus a convention report on Britain's national con and New Zealand's, not to mention this year's SF Worldcon.  There is even a brief look back 40 years to when a group of students decided to run their own convention.  Plus, there is another in our series of articles by scientists who are SF authors on the scientists that have inspired them and their writing.
* 'Autumn' and 'spring' here being the northern hemisphere, academic year autumn and spring.



Mid-December we will have the fourth and final of our one-page, short, SF story PDFs for the year that are our selection of among the best of Nature 'Futures' stories of the previous year, 2018.  For our few ultra-die-hard followers, around the Christmas New-Year break we may Tweet some archive Christmas and/or New Year themed Futures.

Then January 2020 we will have our spring edition of news, reviews, con reports, annual international convention & forthcoming film diary and also articles.

Meanwhile, hopefully you should find something below to tickle your fancy.  Also, why not have a snoop around our past material using the quick links on the short-cut column left of here...
