It's another month and we're getting closer to spring/summer, warm weather and, best of all, no snow to shovel. I think I'm done with winter, cold, and snow for now.
Our March issue brings you a goodly number of reviews and a great cross-section of what's coming out in our genre this month. We've got our usual columns from John Berlyne (UK Books), Sam Tomaino (short fiction), News, and Convention Schedule. I'm sure you'll find something to interest you and to add to your reading stack.
I want to restate that our staff is quite small and if you have an announcement you think the SF and fantasy community would be interested in, send it to us. Don't count on us tracking it down on our own. If you want to be sure we know about your convention, changes in submissions policies, a marriage, birth, or death -- let us know. You can write to us at editor at sfrevu.com.
Now for our usual 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.

Media People Take Note:
It's rather difficult to review newly released DVDs or other media when we don't get a copy. So, if you'd like us to review something, send material to SFRevu c/o Gayle Surrette, 16440 Baden Westwood Road, Brandywine, MD 20613.
