A cheerful buzz of excitement is building aboard the good ship SciFiMonth. Star charts are scattered across the mess. Research papers and hazard assessments are stacked for review. The radio is on (so is the kettle). It’s just under a month to the start of our annual SF geekstravaganza! Are you ready?
