Editorial License: Hugo Hopefuls - Let's shake things up this year with some changes for SF's highest award by adding some new contenders.  Columns: US Books - UK Books - Canadian DamnAlien DVD - Comics - SFTV Along with the wealth of new release information that Ernest (US), John Berlyne (UK) and Asta Sinusas (Can) bring you, Sawicki's DVD column should help you with your Holiday giving, with his "Twelve DVD Days of Christmas", and Daniel scouts around for some comics to recommend.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Film Reviews: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Ern finds that unlike most middle films, Towers benefits from our knowing that it was meant to do this job, and it does it well, though with a little too much action and adventure. Solaris - Alex Lightman joins us as film reviewer, and we do him the disservice of making him sit through Solaris.
Star Trek: Nemesis - We're delighted to have Tony Tellado on board for our Nemesis coverage, and he brings us some cast interviews along with his review.

Dec: Equilibrium
Feb: Daredevil - Can Blind Justice follow where a radioactive bug has gone before? Stay tuned Marvel fans. Mar:  Like some hideous monster, bad SF just won't die. This one is rotten to The Core

SFTV: Taken - SF Mini series - was the Sci-Fi Channel Mis-Taken about our need for yet another take on the Roswell crash?

Events/Cons: SFWA NYC Editor's Gala - The annual SFWA bash moves to a bar on Wall Street, and our gal in NY gets the inside story.
Feature Review: The Hard SF Renaissance - After New Wave, after Cyberpunk, Hard SF reestablished itself as the heart and soul of the genre. The editors insights and a broad range of stories from the 1990s make a compelling case for the new Hard SF. Feature Interview: David Hartwell - David Hartwell is one of SF's greatest anthologists and editors as well as co-editor of The Hard SF Renaissance (with Kathryn Cramer).
