New up we have one of the Nature multidisciplinary science journal, one-page 'Futures' short stories that we consider among the best of the 51 published by Nature the previous year. See below... 'Most recently added'.
Message of the moment: We are now on Twitter.
Because we only have three major editions of news and reviews a year (spring, summer and autumn) and one short story in between, it is very easy to miss us. So you can be notified when we have a new posting we are now on Twitter at @SF2Concat. (We promise only to send clusters of tweets at these upload times.) Our site statistics 'unique visitors' jump by a few thousand the months of our seasonal uploads, but whether or not Twitter alerts are appropriate (or needed) remain to be seen. Anyway, do feel free to spread the word to your friends with SF interests: it would be appreciated. :-)
Your good deed... (possibly)
Mary Robinette Kowal has been running an on-line survey to find out more about the demographics of SF&F readers. (Let's hope once she has 10,000 responses she does a multivariate analysis.) This survey is a worthy venture and we hope that our site's visitors will support it with five minutes of their time. The survey can be found here. And if you have filled it in then have a gander at the results so far here.
If you are reading this in a non-English speaking country then you may care to note that we are on the lookout for non-UK-based national convention reviewers and non-British brief news reporters. Hope that some of you are up for it. We just need short, almost bullet-point messages and perhaps links, of news. See one of our news pages for the kind of small summaries of news we are after. Meanwhile enjoy the below.
There will be another best of 'Futures' mini-short story mid-December to tide you over the Christmas/New Year break. Mid-January and we will have our seasonal round-up of news and reviews together with our natcon and forthcoming film diary for 2014, plus possibly a convention report or two. Mid-March sees another one-page PDF 'Futures' short story. Spandancarous.
