Unreality SF is a website about tie-in (or “expanded universe”) fiction.

We love TV shows and films, especially sci-fi (hence “SF”) and fantasy (hence “unreality”). (We also quite like hyphens, hence the hyphen. Look it seemed like a good idea at the time, shush.)

But we also like it when the characters and concepts from those films and TV shows cross over into other mediums. Brilliant, legendary shows like Doctor Who and Star Trek, for example, have thrived for decades in books, comics, and audios.

And that’s what Unreality SF is about — those tie-in stories that expand our favourite fictional universes. We post reviews of new and old releases, and sometimes also interviews and features.

Occasionally, we also branch out to cover other things that interest us — including tie-ins based on other media (like Warhammer), original series spun off from tie-ins (like Bernice Summerfield), classic retro sci-fi (like Journey into Space), and original projects from creators who make tie-ins we love (like ATA Girl).

We’re based in the UK, and have been online as Unreality SF since March 2008. (We were preceded by a couple of Star Trek book review sites written by our contributors — namely BookTrek, which launched in April 2004, and the LiveJournal version of Defcon’s Treklit, which launched in November 2004 — and incorporated some of their content when we launched.)

On our first four birthdays as Unreality SF, we ran the “Top of the Pulps” award. On our fifth, we celebrated tie-ins.
