Our June issue is just jam packed. We've got reviews of short fiction, magazines (print and online), novels, manga, non-fiction. I think we've covered the gamut of most of the subgenres of science fiction and fantasy too.
What we don't have this month is an author interview. Sorry, but I dropped the ball on this one. Hopefully, the over abundance of reviews will help make up for it and next month, I should be back in the groove. I might even be organized.
Meanwhile, we have several new reviewers this month. If you are interested in reviewing for us, check out our requirements in the Reviewers Wanted section and send us an email.
Take care and enjoy the summer season...using our reviews as a guide to your summer reading.
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 SF and Fantasy and their subgenres? Write to us at editor (at) sfrevu.com.
