It’s almost here! Sci-Fi Month is about to begin, so it’s high time I formally announced my various plans for it. Robots, genetically engineered soldiers and drug induced virtual reality craziness are all present and correct – read on to find out the rest!
It will come as no surprise to regular readers to learn that I have been eagerly awaiting the start of Sci-Fi Month since I found out it existed. Sci-fi Month is a celebration of all things science fiction, whether that be books, films, games, TV series, or anything in between. It’s run by Lisa (@deargeekplace) and imyril (@imyril), who are also responsible for the excellent Wyrd & Wonder.
Whilst I claim that this site covers all things speculative, it’s difficult to deny that there is definitely a clear bias towards science fiction. Well, be prepared for that bias to get a whole lot worse come November, as every single post will be tied to Sci-Fi Month! There’ll be the usual weekly reviews, all for science fiction books, as well as some other fun bits too. Check out the full schedule below:
The Infinite Speculation Sci-Fi Month Schedule
3rd November: Top Ten Tuesday: Sci-fi Goes to the Movies
5th November: Book Review: Refraction, by Christopher Hinz
9th November: Music Monday: Vurt, by Jeff Noon
12th November: Book Review: The Rush’s Edge, by Ginger Smith
19th November: Book Review: Sea of Rust, by C. Robert Cargill
23rd November: Music Monday: Girlfriend in a Coma, by Douglas Coupland
26th November: Book Review: Radicalized, by Cory Doctorow
30th November: Music Monday: The Left Hand of Darkness, by Ursula K. Le Guin
There’s even a small possibility that I might be able to fit some more posts in there, but we shall see how we go. Keep an eye on my Instagram (infinite_speculation), as there will be accompanying posts on there too, many of which will hopefully tie in with the fun daily prompts!
That’s everything that I have planned for Sci-fi Month. What about you? Are you joining in the fun with some posts of your own? Make sure you use the hashtag #SciFiMonth if you do, so everyone can find all the fantastic content that’s bound to come out of this event!
