Surprisingly, we managed -- in spite of all the holiday cheer -- to put together a great issue for you. First, we have an interview with George R.R. Martin and Melinda Snodgrass by Drew Bittner. We also have a review of Inside Straight, the newest book in the Wild Card universe.
Then we have a closer look at the UK releases by John Berlyne, Sam Tomaino covers zines and short fiction, and to round out the month we have reviews of manga, media, and some great science fiction and fantasy.
Due to a snafu with email and attachments and dead PCs, Rogan Marshall's media reviews will be added as soon as we can iron out our Internet problems -- so check back.
Now for our regular 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.
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.
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 mystery genre and its subgenres? Write to us at editor (at) sfrevu.com.
