SFX "Langford" Column Index

SFX, avowedly the world's bestselling magazine about SF , was launched in June 1995. Every issue from #1 to #274 contains at least one Langford column. If you enjoy the samples linked from this page, I urge you to buy the First Collected Edition: The SEX Column and other misprints. This is complete to March 2005 (columns #1-#128), with many added corrections, comments, afterthoughts, additional SFX features and even an index in the print edition. The sequence of columns continues (#129-#183), along with masses of non-SFX essays, reviews, etc (and, again, an index) in the also highly desirable collection Starcombing (2009). Both these collections are also available as ebooks. The final round-up (#184-#274), taking the column to its farewell instalment in the July 2016 issue and again including some extras to swell the total to 100 items, is in preparation as The Last SFX Visions. Keep watching the skies! David Langford

PS: No, I didn't want to stop writing for SFX just yet. In March 2016 the editor told me very nicely that a budget cut imposed by high-ups at Future Publishing meant that the magazine couldn't afford me (or my regular illustrator Andy Watt) any more; see also the first item in Ansible 345. My Future commissions for three further columns after the July 2016 issue turned out to be not worth the electrons they were printed on. So it goes.
