Settle in by the fire, traveller. Grab a hot drink – or a cold one, if you’d rather – and get ready to hear the tales of a hundred adventurers fresh back from the wilds of fantastic realms. Yes, it’s time to look back on the first week (and a bit) of Wyrd And Wonder…
Welcome to an epic month of celebrating the fantastic. The annual Wyrd and Wonder party starts here, where our party of fantasy lovers yell about books, gush over shows, search out new authors and share our favourites as we explore every nook and cranny of the genre. There’s no protecting your TBR, so grab a book bag of holding and get ready for rapid expansion!
So I was procrastinating over some overdue reviews (shh, I know) at the weekend and before I knew it I was tinkering with the Challenge to see if I could turn the prompts into a Wyrd And Wonder Book Bingo. The answer was not really, but I kept going because who doesn’t love book bingo? So for those of you who fancy a fantasy reading challenge for May, here you go!
Hey you – you look like a reader who enjoys dipping into the worlds of fantasy from time to time. Which worlds? Any of them! All of them? We’re not fussy – Wyrd and Wonder is about celebrating the fantastic in all its forms with a party of like-minded adventurers. I’m happy to announce (rather later than usual, but time runs differently in fantasy worlds) that your favourite fantasy blogstravaganza will be back this May! Will you join us?
Our annual journey is over, our crew has dispersed – but let’s take one final moment to look back at SciFiMonth 2020 before we turn our faces towards the end of one year and the start of a new one.
Hailing all channels: it’s time to catch up with the rest of the crew! Grab a cuppa while we set our coordinates for last week and get ready to enjoy some features, discussions and Instagram delights…
It’s There’s Always Room For One More‘s birthday today – would you believe it’s been five years since this little blog was born? I’m celebrating with a look back at some favourite moments – and (in best hobbit fashion) I shall be giving away a book…
Hailing all channels: it’s time for your weekly SciFiMonth round-up! If you’ve been too busy enjoying your own adventures to check in on the rest of the crew, grab a cuppa and settle in to see what they’ve been up to.
Hailing all channels: it’s time for the second half of your weekly SciFiMonth round-up! The signal has been inconsistent from this quadrant (aka I’ve sick), but that hasn’t slowed down the crew feed. Grab a cuppa, and let’s take a look at the week that was…
Hailing all channels: it’s time for your weekly SciFiMonth round-up! With more crew aboard than ever before, it’s been a busy week and given the events happening in meatspace (my poor refresh button, it is quite worn out) it was easy to miss something. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Grab a cuppa, and let’s take a tour of the fun so far.
It’s that time! SciFiMonth, when we set off on our 30-day mission to explore strange new worlds and alternate dimensions; to seek out new books and unfamiliar media; to boldly geek out like… well, like we do every year, joyfully and without restraint. BRING IT.
With the start of SciFiMonth just a week away, we’re counting down to launch. Time to dig out old star charts, draw up ambitious plans for discovering – or creating – new life forms, decide where to start knocking on the walls of reality to open doors to parallel dimensions… or maybe just figure out our TBRs and blog content. If you’re looking for some ideas, we’re here to help.
Do you need an Escape Pod in your life? Sure you do. Escape Pod is the Hugo-nominated podcast for the very best SF audio fiction in the universe – but to celebrate its 15th birthday, Escape Pod is crossing the streams and entering print for the first time. And thanks to Titan Books, I’ve got a copy to give away!
The engines are warming and the leisurely countdown has begun (we like plenty of time to be sure we don’t forget any books): the good ship SciFiMonth has booked its launch slot and is welcoming crew aboard. Time to talk crew’s quarters, navigation charts and the gorgeous 2020 design kit!
2020 may have lasted forever, but it’s time to set our sights on the future. SciFiMonth will be back this November for a month of exploring the coolest genre on or off-planet. Sign up is now open – if you’re interested in joining the finest crew of geeks as we discuss all things science fictional, jump aboard!
