Weekend Reads - RAW 170616


The weekend is here and I hope you have some good reading lined up.

I'm currently working on a series of articles that I hope will help people new or unfamiliar with science fiction understand the genre better and want to read more of it. I'm hoping you can help. 

If you have any questions about science fiction (or fantasy) or have an idea for an article that you'd like to read (or video you'd like to watch) please let me know. I've love to hear from my readers about what you'd like to see more of.

You can comments on this blog, or contact me on Twitter or Facebook (details at the bottom of the page). Why not sign up for my newsletter too.

Anyway, when it's time to relax this weekend, grab your favourite beverage and have a read of the following articles.
