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!
As the month ended, the adventurers gathered in the inn once more to share their exploits. It had been an epic season of Wyrd and Wonder, made delightful by friends well-met and tales well-told. While all good things proverbially come to end, there was comfort in knowing this was less an ending than a hiatus.
Can you believe how far our Wyrd and Wonder journey has taken us? What a few weeks it’s been – this fourth round-up of your adventures is as epic as any that have gone before! Before we tackle the last week, let’s take a moment to take a look back at the chatter along the road.
Week after week, the adventurers sent word back of their travels: venturing into uncharted subgenres, updates to follow. Taking tea with dragons, see you next week. Beset by TBRs, send aid! That last was the most common, but the TBRs proved friendly as a rule – just given to multiplying at alarming rates.
Out across the wild worlds of fantasy, the adventurers went in search of adventures. Some went alone. Some went with buddies. Some traversed the same worlds by different paths. And from time to time, they gathered back at the tavern to hear the bards sing the news of their journeying.
They gathered at the tavern. Some came alone, some came with friends; all came with books. Many called out happy greetings to familiar faces. New faces were welcomed with a smile and found a seat. Soon all were deep in discussions of other worlds and fantastic beasts. And so it began.
Summon your friends! Stock up your book bags of holding! Fear no creaking TBR! It’s May the 1st and you know what that means: it’s the start of an epic month of celebrating the fantastic with Wyrd and Wonder.
It’s just ten days to go until a month of Wyrd and Wonder! I’ll once again be spending May celebrating the fantastic with a band of like-minded dreamers. I can’t resist starting to plan what I’ll be reading, and if you fancy a challenge I have some suggestions for you…
Wyrd and Wonder is back this May for another month of celebrating the fantastic! We’ll be reading, watching, listening and gaming our way through every nook and cranny of the fantasy genre, and sharing our enthusiasm online through our blogs and social media feeds.
A dark corridor stretches before you. You strain to make out the faint sounds echoing off its walls. Are there voices in the distance? Yes! There is a flicker of light ahead. Getting closer, the excited chatter becomes distinct. It is a group of adventurers. Wait, are they clutching book bags?
Welcome to final SciFiMonth Mission Status for this year. What a month it’s been: over 330 blog posts plus a treasure trove of tweets, pictures and comments! Thank you all so much for making it our most epic SciFiMonth yet.
Welcome to half of the weekly SciFiMonth Mission Status log! I’ll be covering the week’s reviews and read-alongs again this week – hop over to Dear Geek Place for a round-up of the week’s discussions and other comms chatter.
We’ve just passed the halfway point on our journey, and the reports are coming in thick and fast from the ground crews and the wider Fleet. Adventure has been found in deep space, on other planets, in other times and dimensions and (of course) in a galaxy far, far away. Let’s take a look…
We’re all settled in for the journey now. The TBRs are stashed, the reading has begun in earnest, and there’s a media catalogue big enough to keep Murderbot happy. Maybe. Let’s look back at the last week’s activity…
