When Teixcalaan requests a new ambassador from Lsel Station and refuses to say why, the Council assume the worst. But it’s far worse than that…
From the ground, we stand; From our ships, we live; By the stars, we hope
Welcome to the Exodan Fleet.
30 years ago, the Society of Jesus sent a ship to Alpha Centauri to make first contact with alien singers. Only one man survived, rescued and returned to Earth a physical and emotional wreck amidst rumours of murder and sin. But what really happened to Father Emilio Sandoz on Rakhat?
Welcome to our biggest SciFiMonth yet! Our mentions exploded on November 1st, and the comm hasn’t stopped pinging since – we love you people ❤️
Nobody expected a meteorite to wipe out the Eastern Seaboard, but we had as little chance as the dinosaurs of surviving the ensuing climate catastrophe. There was only one way out: the space program.
The mercury is dropping. The clocks are going back (that counts as time travel, right?). And aboard the good ship SciFiMonth, the engines are roaring for lift off. Winter starts here: time for your favourite month-long geek-out over all things science fictional!
When SETI decode a mysterious signal to hear gorgeous singing, the world’s governments bicker over how to respond. The Jesuits don’t hesitate. They have the means and the will to build a spacecraft and send a team to make contact. After all, surely only children of God could make such beautiful music… right?
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?
Blink and before you know it you’re nearly three-quarters of the way through the year. That means we’re at the point that I should probably start worrying about filling my dance card, doesn’t it? Let’s take a look…
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?
Another exhilarating year of Subjective Chaos has come to an end: in amongst the many events at Dublincon, we announced our 2019 winners – and celebrated as our 2019 Fantasy winner took home the Campbell for Best New Writer (don’t say we didn’t tell you). Enormous congratulations to Jeannette Ng!
Summer is well and truly here, time to slow down and read all the books. It’s also time for one last round of fantasy suggestions to help those taking part in Annemieke’s Dancing with Fantasy and Sci-Fi reading challenge!
Two forces compete for control of the future. Their agents do battle through time to nudge every possible world towards the outcomes they need. But now two of their best have made direct contact. Now the war is for their hearts and minds.
