Explanation: What drives auroras on Saturn? To help find out, scientists have sorted through hundreds of infrared images of Saturn taken by the Cassini spacecraft for other purposes, trying to find enough aurora images to correlate changes....

Welcome to our October issue. Can't believe we managed to get most of the issue up on time. As you've probably guessed, we're again running behind and more reviews will be added over the next couple of days. But there's still enough here to keep you reading and hopefully finding books well worth adding to your To Be Read pile among the reviews and in the US and UK Books columns.

Don't forget to check out the short fiction available online and in print. Sam Tomaino has managed to cover quite a few publications this month in his column. Charles Mahapel has some reviews of newly released Blu-Ray and DVDs. Coming soon is a review of Fringe Season 2 -- check back for that one.

As always, we look forward to your comments and feedback. There's a comment form at the bottom of each article and review so let us know how we can improve and what we're doing right

SFRevu will have a table in the Dealers Room at Capclave, the Washington DC area's annual science fiction convention. Staff and reviewers will also be attending the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus, Ohio. Please stop by and say hello -- we always like to meet our readers.

Read on for our regular announcements...

Reviewers Wanted:
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.)

News Column:
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.

Convention Calendar:
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.

Publishers Take Note:
Material sent to us will be listed in our books-received column and may also be commented on or reviewed. With few exceptions, material not sent will not be listed or reviewed. Please send materials to SFRevu c/o Gayle Surrette, 16440 Baden Westwood Road, Brandywine, MD 20613.

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. Media publishers in the UK or Europe send to: John Berlyne c/o SFRevu, 8 Elm Grove, Sale, Cheshire, M33 7JY, United Kingdom.
