It looks like the return to Troon is fairly permanent. Peter, Alan and half a dozen of their local SF enthusiasts in the new Northumberland Heath SF group (Face Book page here) in December held the group's first anniversary meeting.The problem is that his collection of books and writing is now at the University of Cork. December also saw several of the group see the new Star Wars film including a party of four members.The paper edition was launched at the Carte de Nisip [Owls' Bookshop].Judge Dredd Megazine Now is a good time to try out this monthly.
Roberto then left for an SF writers convention in Italy (the nation's only long-lived SF writers convention as other Italian cons have either a broader or a different genre focus) after which he went on to Genoa. Meanwhile one of our book review panel members, Duncan Lunan, has had an abortive move to Ireland and is now back in Troon albeit at a different address.
Robert Cargill (SF adventure) The House of Binding Thorns by Aliette de Bodard (fantasy/urban fantasy) The Stone Sky by N. Jemisin (fantasy) New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson (near-future SF) Artemis by Andy Weir (hard SF) Last year's Best SF novels here. Possibilities include:- Blade Runner 2049 (Trailer here) Ghost in the Shell (Trailer here) Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Trailer here) Wonder Woman (Trailer here) Expect Blade Runner 2049 to be short-listed for the Hugo because it is a brilliant SF offering that treats its source material with respect.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is also likely to do well in the Hugos and possibly be short-listed due to the Carrie Fisher effect.
However, many (including notably Brian Aldiss) consider the novel Mary Shelly's Frankenstein -- with a scientist as a protagonist and the use of technology at the story's core -- to be the first true work of modern SF.
It will be interesting to see how the SF community and its various conventions marks this anniversary.
