New up...

New up, mid-November, is a one-page SF story from our Best of the Nature 'Futures' series. Enjoy.

SF Worldcon and Eurocon 2014

You may have gathered that in August this side of the Pond in the British Isles we have had bit of an accretion of science fiction professionals and fans. A dozen or so of us were among the several thousands participating and, if you were there too, we hope that you had as good a time as we did; if you weren't then be consoled with the thought that it was a tad exhausting.

Other stuff...

If you are reading this in a non-English speaking country then you may care to note that we still really are on the lookout for non-UK-based national convention reviewers and non-British brief news reporters. It will actually only take 20 minutes of your time just three times a year! Hope that some of you are up for it. Do get in touch. We just need short, almost bullet-point messages and perhaps links, of news. See one of the paragraphs of our news pages for the kind of small summaries of news we are after. Meanwhile enjoy the below.


Mid-December sees another one-page PDF story with an appropriate seasonal SF theme in the run-up to the New Year... This is the fourth and final of the Best of Nature's 'Futures' stories we have slated for 2014. All are our choice as to the very best of the 51 (weekly) Nature 'Futures' of last year.  Then in mid-January there will be the Spring 2015 edition of news, convention reports and book reviews. Here the news page will contain our thoughts on what might possibly be among the best SF books and films of 2014. If our selections the past years are anything to go by then there may well be a number that will go on to win some major SF awards... (For example, here are our 'Best of ' SF/F books and films of 2013, and subsequent Hugo Award nominations.)

Our posting schedule is regular -- so you can see when things are due by looking at what was posted, and when, previously -- but if you want early notification of a few advance posts then join the few following us on our new Twitter thingy.
