#SciFiMonth Mission Log: supplemental

Our crew has crossed galaxies and navigated timelines, delved into what if and could be, but every SciFiMonth must come to an end. Better late than never, it’s time to look back across the final ten days of shenanigans and share the crew’s adventures.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our tenth annual celebration of all things science fictional – it’s been a delight to see familiar faces and new come together to share recommendations and have fun with one of our favourite subgenres. It’s been quieter than planned from your co-hosts, but the crew has kept the party going all month and we love you all for it! So, let’s take a look at what went on in the last ten days of the month – head over to Dear Geek Place for a round-up of the crew’s reviews, read-along and wrap posts, or keeping reading for the lists, discussions, Challenge posts and miscellaneous fun.

Lists and recommendations

SciFiMonth is always a brilliant blend of looking back at favourites, celebrating recent releases and stirring up excitement for what is coming soon. First up, the crew shared what’s on their scopes:

But it’s not all about future fiction. If you’re looking for something to get your hands on now, the crew are here to help:

…and Alex brought us a recommendation of a different sort with his reflection on why we perhaps shouldn’t rush to buy and read the works of recently-deceased authors.


What’s a month of fun without some memes and book tags? Dull, that’s what – and SciFiMonth is never dull.

The SciFiMonth Challenge

Let’s close the post round-up with the challenge, 30 days of prompts and intriguing interpretations:

Apologies for not featuring more from Instagram – they have suppressed the hashtag for undisclosed reasons. Perhaps we showed too much enthusiasm for science fiction…


First up, some winners! I’m delighted to announce that Russell “Agricola” T is the winner of an advance copy of The Ten Percent Thief, and a bundle of amazing Solaris titles will be winging their way to Celeste of A Literary Escape.

It’s not quite too late to get in on some giveaway action:

  • Tammy is hosting her traditional end of SciFiMonth giveaway – enter at Books, Bones & Buffy before midnight (PT) on December 6th for a winner’s choice of an SF read up to $20 (International, 2 winners)
