Welcome to our first issue of 2017. We hope you enjoy our January issue 'cause we believe we have some interesting books covered this month along with reviews of some of the magazine publishing short fiction.
Don't forget to check out our US Books column. This is where we list each of the books that we receive in our office that will be published in January. Each book is listed with its bibliographic information, a link to Amazon or the small press publisher, and the blurb telling you what the book is about. You can use the Next and Last Month links to look at upcoming months or past months listings.
Note that we need your help with our Convention listings. We have a very small staff and try our best to list those conventions that we know about that cover science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres but we can't possibly find every one of them or even most of them. So, if you know of a convention and we don't have it listed under the month that it occurs feel free to send us the URL for the convention website so we can list it in this column. (See our announcement section for what information we are looking for.)
We also enjoy hearing from our readers. There's a comment form at the bottom of every review, article, or essay. Please feel free to send us your comments and questions.
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 (or a link to a review you have written). 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 with the link to the convention website, dates of the convention, where it is held, perhaps a contact person.
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? Did you have a different opinion than our reviewer? 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.
We're often asked and yes, we do take small press books. Not all books we receive get reviewed but all are listed in our US Books column or UK Books column.
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.
