Welcome to 2018 and the 200th anniversary of Science Fiction

Yes, 2018 will see a number of SF anniversaries including the 200th of SF itself!


New up...

Most recently posted is our usual large-ish, spring season news page that has sections on film, books, TV, as well as the season's forthcoming books listing of new titles (also fantasy and non-fiction) from the major imprints in the British Isles, many of which will soon be available elsewhere.  And then there is the news page's science as well as science and SF interface section.  Additionally, there is 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 have SF convention reviews of the 2017 Worldcon as well as two conventions from Spain and two from Britain. Plus there is our new diary page of national and international-level conventions as well as forthcoming SF/F/H films for 2018 (with some links to trailers).  All this and some 40 standalone SF/F/H and science & non-fiction book reviews. Full details below.



Coming soon, mid-March, our first 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. We can't give you a couple of lines teaser as we have yet to finish deciding on which of last year's 51 stories we think are representative of the best.

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