We’re past the halfway mark now and we’re deep into our exploration of alien civilisations, parallel worlds and future technologies. Time for our weekly round-up of what’s been going on…
The world is dying. The race for the stars has begun and Britain is determined to be the first to reach the promised world of Terra-Two. A small, fast ship will carry 4 experienced astronauts and 6 carefully-selected teenagers to prepare Terra-Two for colonisation. But this golden opportunity may not be what it seems…
We’re a third of the way and settled into a regular routine – no mutinies, no odd disappearances and no garbled screaming on the comms. I’ve not been around as much as I’d like on this first leg of our journey (I had to spend some time in med bay; then have been kept busy down in the cargo hold sorting out some legacy crates). However, I’ve been listening in on comms all the while, so grab a cuppa and I’ll bring you up to date on what’s been going on…
Top Ten Tuesday is was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It’s all about books, lists and sharing the love we have of both with our bookish friends. This week, we’ve been asked what backlist books we’re looking forward to – and of course I’m going to be focusing on SF books.
OH MY WORD – one day into SciFiMonth and my mentions were pinging away like a winning slot machine as the excitement exploded. They haven’t stopped since (you’re all AMAZING!). So I couldn’t resist an early round-up of the first three days so we can admire the TBRs and all watch our wishlists balloon out of all control (sorry, not sorry).
The first full moon of winter has been and gone. It’s time to turn our gaze to the skies and see what dreams may come. That’s right, folks, it’s SCIFIMONTH! Once again, Lisa and I will be your hosts for a month-long celebration of all things science fictional. So, what can you expect this year?
Your annual SF love-in is just around the corner (okay, two weeks away, but we’re excited, okay) and we can’t wait to find out what strange new worlds and civilisations you’re planning to explore. So what have we got for you? An exciting sign-up giveaway, plus SciFiMonth banners and buttons to download!
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?
Last autumn, I ‘fessed up that I rarely read SF classics. Looking at “scifi novels every fan must read” lists, I’m a very bad SF fan indeed. This year I made a half-hearted effort to mend my ways (I haven’t exactly let them dominate my reading), but Sci Fi Month was my inspiration to tackle a giant.
SciFi Month 2017 has been epic: over two dozen bloggers, nearly 100 reviews plus nearly 100 other posts for chats, discussions, giveaways, interviews and more! We’ve celebrated space opera and cyberpunk, classic SF and Star Wars, and if we haven’t loved everything nothing has soured our delight in the genre. I’ve loved every minute. I hope your TBR has grown as fast as mine.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, in which we have fun making bookish lists. This week it’s time to get excited about our winter reading!
The Earth is dying. Humanity is living in slum-like orbital stations, tantalised by the promise of Rhea, a paradise only the wealthy can afford to emigrate to. Laura takes an 8-year mission aboard a cargo ship to earn her passage – but her duty shift is disturbed by strange noises and a glimpse of another person where none should be. Just what cargo are they carrying? And where are they really taking it?

We’re past the halfway mark now, but we’re not slowing down! SciFi Month 2017 continues to celebrate all things speculative, science and space-based across as many media as we can reach. Here’s a recap of this week’s
