Announcing SciFiMonth 2018: the universe is what we make of it

SCIFIMONTH 2018 (1-30 November) - the universe is what we make of it

Summer is drawing to a close, and the nights are getting longer. It’s time to look up at the stars and wonder what’s out there. That’s right, friends – SciFiMonth is on its way! Lisa and I will be your intergalactic hosts once again this year as we read, blog and dream about all things science fictional. Will you join us?

What is SciFiMonth?

The original blogstravaganza that started it all (for me, anyway) – an excuse to read up the scifi and speculative fiction on your shelf, watch the shows and movies you’ve been meaning to get around to, try out that game or listen to that podcast you’ve heard all about. It’s also a brilliant time to discover new like-minded bloggers, bookstagrammers and booktubers – we don’t mind where you enthuse, just let us know you’re enthusing so we can share and enjoy.

You can make a single post, just join us for a chat on Twitter or go ahead and immerse yourself for the full month of November – there’s no minimum entry requirement and you can’t have too much of a good thing (so long as you remember to eat and sleep along the way).

I’ll mostly be sticking to speculative fiction and space opera: expect aliens, space travel and advanced technologies – but your definition of scifi is the one that counts! (hmm, I can sense a blog post on genre boundaries simmering away already)

Fancy getting involved?

Please sign up so we know you’re planning to join us, and follow the official Twitter account @SciFiMonth for all the latest updates! Come November, we’ll be sharing links to all your activity and singing the song of our people to the stars.

Got any questions or want to bounce around some ideas? Find us at @scifimonth on Twitter.


There’s no deadline for signing up – if you only hear about this on the second-last day of November, you’re still welcome. But if you sign up before 1st November and make a SciFiMonth post in the first week of November, you can enter the sign up giveaway (prize details TBC, enter via the sign up form).
