Michael Schumacher in a Formula One Ferrari practice session the day before winning at Indianapolis in September.
Those of you who joined us last month may remember that my last line in Editorial License said I was about to drive 24 hours and 900 miles with friend and SFRevu contributor Steve Sawicki to see Formula One racing in Indianapolis. We did, and it was an experience. In fact I could, and maybe should, write quite a bit about it, but not today. - El

Editorial License October 2000 by Ernest Lilley, Editor@SFRevu

Well, I'm back from my road adventure to see F1 racing with Sawicki. It was a great road trip and adventure, but this month I'm staying home and watching the leaves turn color.

This is the second monthly SFRevu since my experiment in Just-In-Time web publishing, and we're pretty much back in the swing of it.

Anytime a new author can keep me up most of the night (I'm not going to admit what color the sky was turning when I finished it) he's worth talking to, and John Ringo is all that. Check out his new book, A Hymn Before Battle and our interview with this new Mil-SF's newest star.

Also in this issue, John Berlyne joins us again with some UK reviews and his first look at upcoming titles over there, and we've started a pretty exhaustive listing of new releases in the US October releases section. The missing Lathe of Heaven movie is finally available on video and DVD,  20 years after its first airing, so take a look at our coverage on the film. 

There are two pieces of Web based content reviewed this month, first the CGI Anime Freeware, which is a 7 minute cyberpunk film done over two and a half years as a student project. Not quite film, it's a great piece of work, so go read my review and link to watch the piece.

We also review our first eBook, Angry Young Spaceman, which has caught some attention around the web and I get to talk about whether or not eBooks are the coming thing. Yes, and no...of course.

Gene Roddenberry is running a close second for prolific dead people against L. Ron Hubbard, and we took a look at the new SFTV series "Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda". 

Well, it's time to clear the decks and get going on the next issue, or maybe take a walk and see the leaves turn, so have fun with this one and I'll be back in a month.
