Welcome to our March 2013 issue. I'm so glad to be here on the farside of February even though it looks like more rain, cold, and maybe that four-letter word -- snow. At least the cold/flu-y thing is nearly over and I can look forward to Spring and some very interesting reading in March.

But for now, you get to check out our US Books column for what will be in stores this month that somehow found its way into our office. We list every book we receive whether it gets reviewed or not so that you have some idea of what's coming out this month.

We've got quite a lot of review this month covering science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy, and horror as well as a review of A New American Space Plan: by Travis Taylor, Ringleader of the Rocket City Rednecks by Travis S. Taylor (reviewed by Nick Sauer).

Sam Tomaino has turned in an excellent selection of reviews of print and electronic magazines in his Zines and Short Fiction column. He's also reviewed two stand-alone short stories -- On the Arrival of the Paddle-Steamer on the Docks of V--- by Peter M. Ball and Sanctuary by Susan Palwick. Both of these short stories were published in Eclipse Online and you'll find a link to the full-story in the link section of his review so you can read it yourself.

We've got a UK Review this month by Mario Guslandi of Above Ker-Is and Other Stories by Evangeline Walton, published by Noden Books. The book is also available in the US from Amazon as well as other book sellers.

So, enjoy the March issue. We enjoy hearing form our readers to don't forget to comment (the comment form is at the bottom of each article and book review. Let us know your views and/or suggestions for change/improvement.

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) 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)

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)

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)

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
