Locked in the back room of a research institute where little work is ever done, Cabinet 13 holds secret files documenting cases of spontaneous evolution. When a bored office assistant picks the lock, his understanding of the world changes – but how will forbidden knowledge transform him?
If love does not pin you down, if love is not heavy enough to keep you in place, what on earth could be? If love is not enough then guilt cannot be enough, duty cannot be enough. But what do they weigh?
I have a modest list of eagerly-awaited releases for October, but don’t worry the much-threatened book shortage hasn’t hit yet! There are plenty of titles heading our way that may delight you. If there’s always room for one more, these are the ones I’m considering…
This year’s Subjective Chaos Kind of Awards had what may be the strongest line-up of novella nominees yet. It’s been an absolute pleasure to read them, and a nightmare to try and choose between them to select our finalists. Today I’m looking back briefly at them all, because hell yes you should read them. All of them.
2020 was challenging in many ways, but one thing it had in spades was a glut of really damn good SFF releases. The brave panellists for the 2021 Subjective Chaos Kind of Awards have been screaming through the summer as we winnowed down our epic shortlists to find our finalists. Drumroll, please…
September is always a big month in publishing, and this year is no exception. If there’s always room for one more, these are the titles making my TBR squeak like a force-grown rhubarb.

“Mad” Malago Browne has retired with a saddle-bag full of stolen gold, but she can’t resist a cry for help from across the border. Is she right to suspect the West is beginning to turn against the Capitol and its repressive regime?
What do you do with a holiday weekend and various stages of lockdown? Read all the things! The SciFiMonth crew have been celebrating with a low-key weekend catching up on our SFnal TBRs. Time for a quick round-up of my reads and of posts from my crewmates before we call it a day…
Just one week to go until the start of our new SciFiMonth spring reading weekender, so I thought I’d rummage through my TBR and pick out a flight of books that look like tempting candidates. Will you be reading scifi with us next weekend?
A year is a long time between flights, so Team SciFiMonth is excited to announce our new spring weekender! All Systems Read* is a casual 4-day readathon across Easter weekend for you to catch up on your SFnal TBRs and gossip on Twitter with a like-minded crew.
Welcome to 2021: more subjective and more chaotic (yes I mean later) than ever – but we’re still giving out some kind of awards! Our shortlists are as enticing as ever, and we have a new category added to our roster this year: along with Short Stories (returning from last year) we’ll be picking a Best Debut in addition to the usual genre, series and novellas categories.
60-some years after the mysterious Hyvönen Anomaly was first spotted, it looms on Earth’s doorstep. Some worship it; others fear it; only a select few have any idea what it’s capable of. Tomas Hyvönen’s crew have just 4 years left to figure out how to deal with the enigma before it envelops the planet – unless it consumes them first…
Orphan Black is one of my all-time favourite TV shows, a complete tale well-told in five seasons. Imagine my surprise and delight when Serial Box announced they had cooked up a sequel – narrated by none other than Clone Queen Tatiana Maslany herself.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It’s all about books, lists and sharing the love we have of both with our bookish friends. This week is a Thanksgiving freebie, so I’m sort of cheating as I want to talk about apocalypse novels for SciFiMonth – but I am thankful it’s not the end of the world, so only sort of.
