So long 2016, but not before we say a final farewell to Paul our typesetter back in our print zine days of the 1990s. Paul, may your fonts remain true and your kerning even.
And now we are firmly in 2017 which sees our 30th anniversary at Easter (we launched as part of the 1987 Brit Eastercon which at the time itself saw the 50th anniversary of the first ever SF convention). We begin our fourth decade with a new, slightly cleaner look, seasonal news page format. We also have invited our only Best of Nature 'Futures' writer whose stories we have selected more than once, the SF author and mathematician, Tony Ballantyne, to select his choice of top ten scientists (see 'My Top ten Scientists' below). It just may be that the year might possibly see more such articles from scientists turned SF writers... 2017 promises to be a great year for SF over here in Europe with both the German Eurocon and Finnish Worldcon at which some of us will undoubtedly see some of you. Meanwhile 2017 has a number of other SF amp; science anniversaries.
We have our Spring (northern hemisphere) 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 amp; Non-Fiction books you can expect in the shops this season. Plus there is last season's round-up of Science including Astronomy amp; Space and Natural Science.
Elsewhere in this season's mix we have various standalones including: two convention reports, our aforementioned SF author favourite scientists article, our diary of natcons and forthcoming films (with many links to trailers) diary, plus a good number of standalone fiction and non-fiction book reviews of recently published titles.
See 'Most recently added' below. Enjoy.
Coming mid-March we will have the first this year of our choices of the best of last year's Nature 'Futures' SF stories. As usual it will be a one-page (PDF) short story that has either a bit of a twist and/or edge. Later in the year we hope to have an extra 'Futures' story in addition to the four we usually have per year. (Did we mention that this year will see us become 30 years old? There will be a few new things this year to mark our advance down the temporal continuum.)
Meanwhile, hopefully you should find something to tickle your fancy below...
