Mission Status Update: A successful landing!

The final week of this year’s SciFi Month is all but over, and the event as a whole has been a lovely success despite some final-stretch energy drains upon your nerdy hosts. Let’s look at the last round-up of reviews!

That’s it for my final Mission Status Update, and (save for the final posts in the Read-along for The Sparrow) that’s it for another SciFi Month for me! Don’t forget to keep an eye on There’s Always Room For One More for imyril’s last round-up as well, and I shall say it one more time for the road: a massive, delighted thank you to everybody who took part this year! Whether you were new to our nerd-fest or you returned for another journey with us, you are a valued member of our SciFi Month Fleet and we could literally not do this without you. So thank you all!

Now, let’s decompress. Enjoy the round-up, keep on reading on, and we’ll see you next time round…

… Or maybe sooner, when Wyrd & Wonder comes around again in May? We can’t go leaving fantasy out in the cold, now can we?
