Formerly, it was a monthly but is now coming out as a quarterly. George Orwell has returned to the BBC. Appropriately, the corner where the statue has been placed has been an unofficial smoking area: The statue comes with a plaque that reads: We sadly lost Clarke back in but had he lived he would have been on 16th December.
The anniversary was also marked with a screening of Plus the Clarke fiction Award people are Kick Starting an anthology An Odyssey in Words where each story is exactly 2, words long. Clarke was big on space travel and an active member of the British Interplanetary Space Society.
So to celebrate what would have been Clarke's th year why not spend a couple of minutes watching the classic docking scene from and keep an eye out for the pilot played by Ed Bishop who also was Ed Straker, the lead in U. Galaxies publishes its 50th issue or is it 92nd?
Galaxies is France's leading SF quarterly and bimonthly every other month since January It is just publishing its 50th edition under its fourth editor, the SF author Pierre Gevart. January sees Pierre's 50th issue though it will be the 92nd or is it 91st edition since the magazine was founded in under the editor of Stephanie Nicot.
Or is it the 91st issue? The issue number 41, was edited and was to be dedicated to Joelle Wintrebert, but it never saw print. Anyway, happy 50th Galaxies. Wells Society Timisoara publishes 45th anniversary edition of Paradox. A brief puff for Timisoara's SF society, the H.
Wells society whose magazine has just published its 45th edition. Formed decades before the end of communism, the SF society was named after H. Wells who was a known socialist, so as to escape censure of the authorities who could close down societies and terminate meetings on whim. It is likely that an on-line, digital version will be available shortly.
The paper edition was launched at the Carte de Nisip [Owls' Bookshop].
Diving into a new franchise often represents something of a commitment: However at this time January there are four good reasons you might want to consider trying out the Judge Dredd Megazine for at least a couple of issues: This year's Eastercon has been trailing no Progress Reports.
Sending printed Progress Report booklets to early registrants is one way of rewarding them for registering early: And this is important if you want to spend early registrants' money in promoting your convention beyond your usual crowd. Yet, the British Eastercon Britain's national convention is a variable feast depending on the organisers' abilities and time they can devote prior to the event making all sorts of things happen.
Consequently, numbers vary and in recent decades have ranged from a respectable to a staggering 2, which is large for a European residential event. However, if you are not going for the high end more typically a London based Eastercon but appealing to the core community of regulars, then are Progress Reports needed?
Follycon not to be confused with the original Follycon Eastercon in has decided to ditch full-blown Progress Reports in favour of single, double-sided fact sheets available as PDFs.
Registrants are e-mailed their roughly half-yearly fact sheet. So, has this worked? From an unscientific analysis of accounts, this system has worked. Of course, whether this will work for those aspiring for larger conventions remains to be seen? Yet, maybe here a significant number will be content with PDF progress reports on the grounds of environmental sustainability and lowering greenhouse emission through forgoing transporting bits of dead tree around the country.
No doubt the British SF community will continue to debate this move for a while to come.Michael Crichton's The Lost World is an interesting piece of work. On the one hand, it is an exciting, page-gripping, edge of the seat thriller reminiscent of the first Jurassic Park novel.
On the other hand, it is exactly that: reminiscent of the first Jurassic Park novel/5. Contact About Links: Search results Found matching titles: Homeward Songs by the Way A.E.
