New up...

New up is our second for 2016 of what we consider were the best four of the 51 science journal weekly Nature 'Futures' SF stories of last year (2015).  These are short, one-page PDF stories that reflect a possible future. And you do not need to take it from us that the very best of these 'Futures' stories are mind-dazzlingly brilliant. Being just one page long you can easily check their standard for yourself, just take a bit of care... Alex Shvartsman's story is below

Still up we have our Summer edition of Science Fiction news (covering the book trade, SF film, TV news), as well as book listings of the forthcoming SF, Fantasy and Science & Non-Fiction books you can expect in the shops this summer.  Plus there is the last season's round-up of Science including Astronomy & Space and Natural Science.   Elsewhere in the mix we have various standalones including: an examination of German SF since WWII (which accompanies a previous article on pre-1945 German SF), a review of last year's Worldcon in the US, our annual top British Isles box-office SF/F/H films chart (as well as a few 'other' worthies we think you might like should you want to rent a DVD or download a film), and not forgetting our usual annual page of SF and science whimsy and oddity with Gaia.

See 'Most recently added' below. Enjoy.

Stop Press: As this year's Hugo announcement came out after our last seasonal edition, we have subsequently added the principal category Hugo Award short lists and also our usual Hugo nominations comment.

Relatedly, do check out 'Asymmetrical Warfare: So you want to be a star?' by S. R. Algernon at the bottom of this page. It has been shortlisted for a Hugo 'Best Short Story'.



Mid-September we will have our autumnal edition of news and reviews, possibly with a convention report or two thrown in the mix.

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