Valar Morghulis!

Another message from our Fanzine Editor Thom

The next issue of the fanzine, Metamorphoses, is now open for submissions! The deadline will be Sunday 16th November, so we can publish it before the end of term and you can all read it as procrastination from deadlines. We’re looking for any and all sci-fi and fantasy writing – book/TV/film reviews (of any kind- if you want to rip apart the science of a blockbuster, or question the literary merit of a classic, it’s all good!), fanfics, original short stories, poetry, and artwork are also very welcome, the latter particularly for the cover.

Send all submissions and queries to Thom at!

Don’t worry if you’re a novice writer- if you need any advice I’ll be happy to provide it!

Meeting Wednesday 15th October


This weeks meeting will be held on Wednesday 15th October at 6:30pm in ER141.

6:30pm – Once Upon A Time

For Emma Swan, life’s been anything but a happy ending. But on her 28th birthday, one wish changes everything. The son she gave up for adoption ten years ago shows up on her doorstep, convinced that she comes from an alternate world and that her parents are Snow White and Prince Charming, who sent her away so she would be protected from a curse enacted by the Evil Queen.

7:30pm – Noon (Short)

A mining disaster has caused damage to the Earth’s core with devastating consequences. Half of the Earth’s population was killed and for the remainder they find a world thrown off its axis and, as a result the position of the sun in the sky is fixed, Antarctica is continual darkness and the Arctic is in constant daylight. A city has been established in the latter and the city is called Noon. In this short film we join one of many transport vehicles moving people into the city through the strict (and corrupt) security controls.

7:45pm – Ender’s Game

The Earth was ravaged by the Formics, an alien race seemingly determined to destroy humanity. Seventy years later, the people of Earth remain banded together to prevent their own annihilation from this technologically superior alien species. Ender Wiggin, a quiet but brilliant boy, may become the savior of the human race. He is separated from his beloved sister and his terrifying brother and brought to battle school in orbit around earth. He will be tested and honed into an empathetic killer who begins to despise what he does as he learns to fight in hopes of saving Earth and his family.

9:20pm – Pub!
