Explanation: They might look like trees on Mars, but they're not. Groups of dark brown streaks have been photographed by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on melting pinkish sand dunes covered with light frost.]
Welcome to our February issue. This month we have reviews that cover most of the subgenres in our field: space opera, time travel, alternative history, military SF, hard SF, fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and more.
Our regular columns are represented John Berlyne with the UK column and Sam Tomaino with the magazine and short fiction column.
We hope you enjoy our February issue and will check back throughout the month for updates to our News and Convention columns. Which reminds me, if you know of a news item or event that we don't have listed, drop us a line. We try our best but time being finite as well as people resources we often miss things. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now for our regular announcements:
While we're happy to have a core of great reviewers for SFRevu, we get more books each month than we've got readers for and we'd like to have more. If you have a great desire to review SF/Fantasy for no pay but the glory of a byline, write to us at editor (at) sfrevu.com telling us a bit about yourself and send a 500 word (or so) review of a book that you have recently read. We should be able to get back to you within the month. (Please let us know what country you reside in -- the cost of mailing books outside the US/Canada may be an issue.)
We started a News column last month. If you have a news item or announcement that you think would be of interest to readers of SF, send to: editor (at) sfrevu.com.
We'd like to add a convention calendar to our magazine. We've made a start. However, we don't have time to scour the Internet looking for what's happening in the SF/Fantasy arena. Please send us your convention listings. Send to: editor (at) sfrevu.com.
Letters to the Editor(s):
We'd like to hear from you ... yes, you. What do you think of our magazine? How could we make it better? Do you like our reviews? What are your thoughts on the SF and Fantasy and their subgenres? Write to us at editor (at) sfrevu.com.
