For his 263rd column, Steve revisits and rewrites one of his first “new” columns for Amazing, six years ago. If you missed it, now’s your chance to catch up!
Steve takes it easy this week with short reviews, award news and singing the blues. Okay, we’re kidding about the blues.
This week Steve talks about some filk, some fan musicians, and even a movie! Yes, the sequel to Jurassic World is up… will it be a drubbing or roses and a bottle of champagne? Read it and see!
This week Steve reviews three newer books: one is outstanding and the other two are worth reading. What’re the odds on that?
This week, Steve says goodbye to another old friend, reviews the March/April F&SF, and tells—and shows!—a bit about the Northwest’s biggest fan-run convention: Norwescon 40!
Steve reviews the current F&SF. It’s still a great magazine! Get it now while it’s still on the stands!
Steve talks about the late Sir Terry Pratchett, and his last book–last DISCWORLD book, too!–which just came out. A new Pratchett is usually a joyous occasion, but this book brings mixed emotions.
Steve talks about artists and their Christmas cards. (Only a day late, right?) Merry Christmas!
Steve’s (NOT R. Graeme Cameron’s) report on last weeks VCON 39/Canvention 34!
Robocop 2014: better than the original? Or worse?
Receiving zines in the mail used to be almost an everyday thing for me back in “The Day,” but sadly, it’s an unusual occurrence these days.
I found out just yesterday from the Internet Speculative Fiction Database that November 1979 marks the first fan column I ever published in Amazing magazine, the print version. My column was titled “Fans, Prose and Cons”—a somewhat obvious three-way pun. That means it’s been 34 years since I started writing for this magazine.
