Explanation: On another April 12th, in 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Alexseyevich Gagarin became the first human to see planet Earth from space. Commenting on his view from orbit he reported, "The sky is very dark; the Earth is bluish. Everything is seen very clearly". To celebrate, consider this recent image from the orbiting International Space Station.]

Welcome to our May issue. We'll be polishing the chrome and get things shiny for you over the next two days. We've got a fairly packed issue.

* Two graphic novels are reviewed: Leviathan by Ian Edington & D'Israeli and Rohan at the Louvre by Hirohiko Araki which is part of The Louvre collection.
* Sam Tomaino's column reviewing ezines, magazines, and short fiction.
* Our US Books column where we enter all the books we've received in our office that are being published this month.
* Our UK Books Column is on hiatus this month but should be back next month.
* We add to our News and Convention columns throughout the month so check back often.
* Check out our page on Facebook for time sensitive information and interesting bits throughout the month.
* Review. Reviews. And more reviews. There's got to be something that catches your interest.
Now for our usual 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. Or if you publish in the UK or Europe send to: John Berlyne c/o SFRevu, 27 Clarence Gardens, London, NW1 3LH, United Kingdom

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, 27 Clarence Gardens, London, NW1 3LH, United Kingdom
