Coming Soon: The Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly


Exciting news! The Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly is a digital magazine devoted to all things science fiction romance. The first issue will launch November 15, 2013. Each edition will cover a three month period.
 
Content you'll discover includes the following:

* topical columns on a variety of SFR-related subjects
* book reviews
* information about new science fiction romance releases
* an exclusive, original sci-fi romance short story!

The team behind the Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly is K.S. Augustin, Grand Poo-Bah & Editor-in-Chief, Diane Dooley, Fiction Editor Extraordinaire, and me, Heather Massey, explorer of science fiction romance (and owner of The Galaxy Express).

Here's some interesting trivia: The Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly may be new, but the concept isn't. 

The current venture reinvents The Science Fiction Romance Newsletter, a previous print magazine run in successive order by Jennifer Dunne, Jody Wallace, and Joyce Ellen Armond
