Matrix is the news and media reviews organ of the British Science
Fiction Association. Here you will find news on the latest releases at the
cinema, what's happening on the small screen, the music scene, the world of
comics and beyond.
In addition, Matrix contains cutting-edge features and interviews with
authors and other industry professionals, as well as news of Science Fiction and
speculative fiction events throughout the UK.
In September 2007, the former editorial team of Tom Hunter and Claire Weaver
stepped down, to be replaced by Ian Whates, Kim Lakin-Smith and Del
Lakin-Smith. As well as assisting Ian in his editorial duties, Del and Kim
provide the magazine's layout and design.
From # 187 (March 2008), Matrix abandoned its former hard copy format and became
an online magazine, which has allowed it to be far more up-to-date and reactive
with regard to news and reviews. In this new incarnation, the expectation is
that the magazine's main content -- features, articles and interviews -- will be
updated quarterly, but the more time-sensitive elements -- reviews and news --
will change more frequently and so will remain more current.
Welcome to the new age of Matrix Online.
