We are proud to present the first issue of Fafnir – Nordic Journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy Research in the year 2016!
This first issue of Fafnir’s third year concentrates on science fiction and the concepts and discussions around it, such as William Gibson’s long expected return to the genre of science fiction, the novel The Peripheral. Furthermore, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek franchise with an essay on the remixing of two separate physical individuals in three episodes of the franchise.
In addition to this, the issue includes includes a book review on James Burton’s ambitious work The Philosophy of Science Fiction, Henri Bergson, and the Fabulations of Philip K. Dick, and a report from the conference (or Academic Track) of Archipelacon, the Nordic science fiction and fantasy convention that was held in Mariehamn, Åland in June 2015.
Please do remember that Fafnir welcomes submissions of research articles, short overviews, academic book reviews, essays, opinion pieces and the like.
The next issue is scheduled for June 2016. In the meantime, live long and prosper, dear readers!
