At long last, welcome to the semi-stable online home of...

Now that I have a web page under my direct control, maybe this one won't disappear!

Nova Express is a Hugo-nominated science fiction critical magazine featuring interviews, articles, criticism, and reviews. It was founded in 1987 and has so far published a total of 22 issues. It's published on an irregular basis.

Please note that the print edition of Nova Express has been on hiatus since 2002, and will probably be reborn as some sort of multi-user blog. But back issues are still available.

This web site will show what's in past and present issues and what's coming up next. We'll also start putting up content from out-of-print issues, but there's not a lot up here yet.

Part of Volume 5, Issue 1 is now online, including an interview with Gene Wolfe.
