In the same way that Iron Man upgrades his armour to tackle new challenges, every website needs the occasional update to keep it relevant. I’ve overhauled my blog this week, introducing a number of changes which signal a new direction for the site.
Not only has the design been upgraded, but you may notice that the title Science-fictionality has been changed to Andrew R. Cameron. This isn’t just a vain moment of self-aggrandizement (although I won’t deny that may be a factor), but it’s also a chance to broaden my focus into other topics. My tastes are evolving as I get older – although science fiction will always be my grand passion, many of the books that I am reading come from an increasing diversity of genres. I’ve developed a macabre craving for horror in the past couple of months, perhaps fuelled by the sheer amount of Lovecraft that I’ve been reading this year. I’ve been exploring a lot of other works too, from erotic fiction to crime noir. And I’m itching to write about them. I want my blog to reflect this diversifying taste in books and movies, to promote discussion on a number of different topics.
I hope you enjoy the new design. I hope you enjoy the broader focus. I’m looking forward to engaging with new readers in the coming year!
