I know, I know – it’s such a cliché to say this, but it really does seem like it was just yesterday when Science Fiction Zone was brought into existence. And yet we’re one year old this month!
Before I begin, I just want to start off with a HUGE thank you to our readers, followers and fans. I seriously cannot thank you enough for your support and participation on this site, our Facebook page and our Twitter page. Without you, the site would have been a distant memory by now. You guys are AWESOME!
It’s amazing how many changes can take place in one calendar year. At the urging of two very good friends, I decided to launch SFZ. In those early days I remember feeling varying degrees of uncertainty, and how it was almost paralyzing at times. My biggest concern (aside from building and running the website with absolutely no experience whatsoever) was trying to captivate people’s interest by presenting ideas in an innovative and refreshing way. SFZ had to bring something new to the table; we needed to go beyond news. My goal was to discuss things that were different, controversial even – in the hopes that we could get a great debate going and get people really thinking about what they’re seeing/watching/reading in the genre.
I think we’ve achieved that. Yes, it’s only been our first year, but we’re continually growing and we’re stronger than ever. We’ve had some awesome guests share some really riveting articles, and we had the opportunity to interview some celebrities (such as Supernatural’s Jim Beaver , Doctor Who’s Noel Clarke, UFO Phil and Legend’s Marie Lu to name just a few). And there’s no stopping us now!
Continue to stay tuned to read even more interesting and thought-provoking articles related to science fiction, fantasy (and even sometimes horror).
And if you have ANY ideas at all for something you’d like to read, contact me at christine@theSFZ.com and I’ll review your suggestion.
Thanks once again for all of your support!
