The new-look SFX tra mailout launches today...

Friday afternoons are a drag. It's one of those sad facts of life that the time between 2pm and 5.30pm gets warped and stretched so much that the seconds feel like minutes, the minutes feel like hours, the hours feel like days... Okay, so that last one was a slight exaggeration, but that doesn't mean we don't understand how waiting for the weekend to get started can get rather tedious.

Luckily, SFX is here to heal your pain. If you sign up to the new-look SFX tra newsletter , your end-of-the-week woes will be alleviated by a concentrated dose of sci-fi goodness delivered straight to your inbox.You'll find a round-up of the week's hottest SF and fantasy news, newsletter-exclusive competitions, a glimpse into the future via our calendar of next week's sci-fi happenings, weblinks to waste some Friday afternoon work time, and plenty more besides. Best of all, it's entirely free.

We don't want to boast or anything, but it'll make you wish that every day was Friday, so why not make your inbox happy?
