This post is part of Sci-Fi Month 2016, a month long event to celebrate science fiction hosted by myself and Over the Effing Rainbow. You can view the schedule here, follow the event on Twitter via the official @SciFiMonth Twitter account, or with the hashtag #RRSciFiMonth.
IT IS FINALLY HERE! I’m pretty sure Sci-Fi Month creeps up on us sooner and sooner each year. I have been running Sci-Fi Month for four years now, and it still surprises me every year. Everyone is so eager and passionate, and I absolutely love it. When I first started the event, in 2013, I wasn’t expecting this kind of response at all. It just completely snowballed and we have so many different types of people taking part, even major publishers have noticed. What makes me happiest is that I now know that sci-fi isn’t a ‘niche’ genre. It is loved by so many people all over the world, for so many different reasons.
I’ll be aiming to post every couple of days this year, and have some exciting prizes provided by Angry Robot and Titan Books. I’ll also be sharing discussion questions every day at 6pm GMT on the official Twitter account, @SciFiMonth, so be sure to keep an eye out!
As with every year I will try to tweet about and comment on each post, or at least as many as possible – if I’ve missed one, please let me know!
