To celebrate the upcoming CoNZealand 78th World Science Fiction Convention being held in New Zealand this year, Simon Litten and I have written a sixty page History of New Zealand Science Fiction and Fantasy. Simon is one of the leading experts in New Zealand science-fiction and fantasy, and was one of the founding members of the Phoenix Science Fiction Club in Wellington. I was thrilled when he asked to collaborate on this.
It is being published here – free – chapter by chapter, on the 15th and 30th of each month until July. Read Chapter 1: Here Be Utopias; Chapter 2: Science Fiction and Fantasy Reborn; Chapter 3: SF Cinema and Television Before the Ring Arrived.
