Editorial – Dec 2020:  Don’t stop alternative solutions.

Hello everyone, With the end of the year looming and the fact that our reality has turned ever more into a Science Fiction reality, it does raise an interesting question as to whether we anticipate future consequences before they happen.

Editorial – Nov 2020: Cuddle Your Safety Blanket And Touch Your Fingertips.

Hello everyone, We all have a safety blanket. Not in the literal sense, unless you’re really very young but we don’t appear to catch many in that age group. In case you don’t know, in context, a safety blanket is a generic term for something we regularly use to get away from the troubles of […]

What To Do When The World Isn’t Watching: an article by: GF Willmetts.

Occasionally I like to speculate about our own world and oddly how it will affect our own genre in the covid-19 situation, although I doubt if people will want to read SF versions of what is going on now. I mean, what can they do but speculate on an inoculation or cure and I suspect […]

Aliens In Isolation: an article by: GF Willmetts (article).

Ever since the finale of the 1953 film version of HG Wells’ ‘War Of The Worlds’, aliens on Earth could fall foul to the simplest Earth infections. Saying that, no author as far as I can recall has gone that way again lest they draw comparison to Wells’ Martians, even as we know there is […]
