For reasons unknown, star V838 Mon's outer surface suddenly greatly expanded with the result that it became the brightest star in the entire Milky Way Galaxy in January 2002. (more at APOD) ]
With our December issue, we here at SFRevu seem to be continuing our visit to the interesting times of that old Chinese curse, "may you live in interesting times." With swine flu and computer malfunctions to keep us on our toes, it has indeed been an interesting month. However, we did managed to pull together an issue that includes our regular columns by John Berlyne of UK Books, Sam Tomaino's coverage of short fiction magazines (print & online), and some media, manga, and graphic novels.
However, due to the above mentioned "interesting times" some content will be added over the next several days as we struggle to catch up on a few missed deadlines. Believe me, it will be worthwhile to check back to see what's been added as we have some interesting items coming up.
Meanwhile, the staff of SFRevu would like to wish you all a very Merry and Safe Holiday Season. Enjoy.
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 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.
