    Great post by Molly Young on SF:
    "When you read about things like photosynthesis (prion diseases are another good one) it is not hard to feel the threads of fact and fiction twirl together in an infinite regress of whoa-dude moments. And in these moments you must remind yourself that science fiction is one way, the easiest and funnest way, to reconcile the two."

    Kindle Releases at SciFan
    While earlier ebook readers left us (and most readers) wanting, it seems Amazon.com has a winner with its Kindle wireless device. Sales are apparently higher than anyone expected, and releases compatible with the device abound. If you look at our ongoing coverage of new sf&f publications and sort it by format, you'll see that we already have extensive coverage of Kindle ISBNs. Sophie here at SciFan is really thinking of buying one in the months to come.

    In Six Words: Scifan Keeps Growing
    These last six months have been quite busy for us. Among other things, we've moved from Portugal to Chile where we're now nicely settling down. Here's a treat you might enjoy: very short stories (33 writers. 5 designers. 6-word science fiction.)

    They Live!
    When all but our most hardcore fans were probably giving up on us, we've finally fixed our new & forthcoming section. Thanks to the people who kept supporting us, you can now enjoy again our database in all its freshness (we kept the database up to date all along, it's just the presentation in the news section that didn't work anymore).

    (Yes, we admit to being fans of John Carpenter's 1988 movie They Live - come on, it's fun!)
