Welcome to our May 2014 issue. If April showers bring May flowers -- well, they'd have to learn to swim first. It's been three days of steady rain with thunder and occasional visible lightning. So, we've pulled the issue together with one eye on the surge protectors and with fingers crossed that we don't lose power.
Meanwhile, we've got a pretty good selection of books reviewed this month. Hopefully, you'll be able to find something to spark your interest. Remember, if you don't see a book reviewed that interests you then check out our US Books column. The US Books column lists all the books that arrived in our office that will be published in May along with a short description of what the book is about.
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 have a monthly news column. 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 maintain a convention calendar at 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:
