Yet Another Fund Drive, by Niall Harrison (11/26/12)
The LA Review of Books has a fund drive on this week, which I mention for two reasons: one, they've established themselves as a source of good-quality, in-depth criticism and essays -- including for sf -- and that's worth supporting....

45 minutes to go!, by Niall Harrison (11/04/12)
Your final, final reminder: less than an hour left in this year's fund drive. Looks like overnight donations have taken us about $9,400, which is pretty amazing. Why not add to that?  ...

Meet the Editors, by Niall Harrison (11/03/12)

Closer and closer ..., by Niall Harrison (11/02/12)
