With the good ship SciFiMonth confirmed for launch in November, we’re hunting out our interdimensional charts and multiple-timeline chronographs, and obsessing about which books and shows (and tea) to load. But first things first: SciFiMonth banners and buttons!
Autumn feels a long way away, but as the days shorten and the mercury drops, it’s time to start thinking ahead… to SciFiMonth. Sign up is now open – come geek out with the finest crew of genre lovers as we celebrate the joys and horrors of but what if? through the dark days of November.
It’s just over a month until Wyrd And Wonder, our month-long celebration of the fantasy genre – so it’s time to reveal the prompts for our annual challenge. Share photos, write a blog post (or several), express your response in sea shanties on TikTok – we can’t wait to see what you turn them into!
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?
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…
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!
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?
We’re nearly there: the countdown to SciFiMonth will start any day! Time to plot our course to far-flung star systems, parallel universes, possible futures and poorly-designed research labs full of dubious experiments (what can possibly go wrong?)
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?
A quiet beep. The light on the console pulses more brightly, each burst longer than the last. A low hum. More lights flick on one by one. Finally, a chatter of noise: there’s a message coming in. Time to wake the crew. SciFiMonth is coming! Will you join us?
