Science Fiction Concatenation's What's New

A chronological log of updates to
the Science Fact and Science Fiction Concatenation e-magazine.

You can either scroll down here to find the latest, or alternatively find out from the specialist indexes about recent SF news, all our science fact and science fiction book reviews, top science fiction films (including for past years), the forthcoming national & international science fiction convention and film diary, and articles or reach these indexes from the front page. (Newcomers to this site may first want to see an introduction.)

New up...

New up, mid-September, is our autumnal edition (details below) on news, convention reports and book reviews.

Forthcoming

Mid-November will see a new one-page SF 'Futures' short story, and we will have another in December before Christmas. These will be the third and fourth of the four 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. If you can't wait then enjoy some of our past choices of 'Futures'.  Then mid-January (2015) sees our spring edition which includes our usual large-ish seasonal news summary of science fiction and science relating to books, films and television, and which includes lists of the season's forthcoming SF, fantasy and popular science books, links to some YouTube short vids and film trailers, book trade news among other coverage such as major SF Awards given over the summer from around the World. The spring edition will also include a score of stand-alone SF/F/H book reviews and one or two non-fiction science and related titles.  Our posting schedule is regular -- so you can see when things are due by looking at what was posted when previously -- but if you want early notification of a few advance posts then join the few following us on our new Twitter thingy.

    Prior to 1997 The Science Fact & Fiction Concatenation was an annual print magazine (nos 1 - 9) distributed to the UK national (Eastercon and the then Easter Elydore) as well as Eurocon SF conventions. Concat's first issue was in 1987 at BECCON (that year's Eastercon) for the 50th anniversary of the World's first SF convention.
    (BECCON = BECCON'sEasterCon CONvention. Prior to 1987 it stood for the London region biennual convention the Basildon Essex Crest (formerly Centre) CONvention.)
