The Inevitable Editorial

Gil Williamson

Mercifully short.

Anxious readers will have observed that this edition of Mythaxis is at least one month, perhaps two months, late.

It is, however, well worth the wait, in my opinion, especially since we have made important changes to the website, both here, in the magazine, and in the forum, which has been rebuilt using a different mechanism.

The forum is still a lonely place, due to the fact that, when I last encouraged people to join in, the forum was ignoring sign-up requests. Give it another try, and if it fails again, run screaming to me and I'll make it all right.

Over the course of my travels around the web, I have discovered quite a lot of free-to-download sf, some of it, I'm afraid, extremely dire or old or both, but much of a high quality. Although I feel that online reading is best served by short stories, there are quite a few modern sf novels available for download. In the last couple of years, I have read

  • Charles Stross's Accelerando;
  • Cory Doctorow's Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom;
  • Rudy Rucker's Postsingular
Links to all of these are in the right-hand sidebar here.

Meanwhile, enjoy the new fantasy and sf in this issue of Mythaxis, link to us in your blogs and tell your friends about us.

And I cannot say goodbye without Liam's latest scientific in-joke:
