Big Sky: The SF Masterworks project

Since 1999, Millenium and, subsequently, Gollancz has been publishing the very best science fiction novels in the SF Masterworks series, starting with Joe Haldeman's The Forever War (1975), right up to the latest addition of Arkady and Boris Strugatsky's Monday Begins on Saturday (1965) and stopping off at other science fiction greats like Phillip K Dick (multiple times), Robert Silverbert, HG Wells, Frederik Pohl, James Blish, Poul Anderson, Greg Bear, Arthur C Clarke on the way.

It's a fantastic series of 'must reads' for anyone who loves SF. As part of the LonCon3 celebrations, science fiction enthusiast Peter Young has put together a beautiful two-volume fanzine containing over 250 reviews of all the SF Masterworks published to date. It's an amazing achievement and I'm proud to say my review of Christopher Priest's mind-bending Inverted World is included in the second volume.

The collected reviews appear in Big Sky #3 and Big Sky #4, which you can download for free right now at http://efanzines.com/bigsky/index.htm.
