[Photo Explanation: SNR 0104 is a supernova remnant with an unusual shape. Found 190,000 light-years away in our neighboring galaxy, the Small Magellanic Cloud, SNR 0104 is suspected of being the expanding debris cloud from a Type 1a supernova - the catastrophic thermonuclear explosion of a white dwarf star.]
July has arrived and with it our July issue. This month we have an editorial by Ernest Lilley on Truth, Justice, and the American Way, Sam Tomaino has the latest on short fiction reviews, John Berlyne's UK Column is back, and all is right with my world again.
We will have an item soon...Drew Bittner has been working with Scott Neitlich of Mattel Talks Toys. While we haven't received all the approvals yet we hope to have this in as soon as we do. So check back later.
We're also still working behind the scenes to continuing improving our magazine. We're hoping to get some feedback on what you'd like to see in coming issues. Drop us a line and let us know what we're doing right and where we can improve.
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 SF and Fantasy and their subgenres? Write to us at editor (at) sfrevu.com.
