While some other things are still too much in the pending stage, we’re pleased to announce that due to such great response so far, we’re going to move to a full e-zine format a little ahead of schedule. To that end, we’ve started tracking down some articles, reviews, and interviews to include in BULL SPEC #1 in January, and we’re even more pleased to announce that our first interview will be of Jennifer Bedell & Zachary Boyd of Durham’s Sci-Fi Genre Comics & Games.
Having recently celebrated the 3rd anniversary of their brick-and-mortar store (ScifiGenre.com went online in 2003) great things are always afoot at a place which is near and dear to the hearts of speculative fiction fans in Durham and beyond. We look forward to taking you a bit “behind the scenes” at Sci-Fi Genre, and helping you get to know Jennifer and Zachary a little better in the process as well.
