Coming Up In The SFX Book Club

We discuss the SF classics every month in the magazine and here's what you should be reading next

Read the classics of SF and fantasy literature along with us! The SFX Book Club is open to all, and it doesn't cost anything. Here’s how it works: every month we pick a classic SF, horror or fantasy book. You read it and send us your comments, then we run a feature in which a top-class writer discusses what the book means to them, with a selection of your remarks running down the side. It's easy and fun and you might find yourself rediscovering some of the classics of our genre that you'd forgotten about.
