Far Beyond Reality is one year old today! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a full year since I finally worked up the gumption to set up a central spot for my scattered reviews and other miscellaneous SF&F-related ramblings. In that time, I’ve learned a lot, tried some new ideas, even stuck with one or two of them, and made a bunch of new friends. I posted almost seventy reviews and a bunch of other things including mini-reviews, news roundups, giveaways, and some very successful interviews.
It’s been a good experience so far, and I look forward to keeping the site going for a long time. I’d like to thank everyone who’s followed or subscribed to the site in one way or another, as well as all the others who’ve found FBR through some random web search and occasionally drop by. I value and appreciate all my readers, and welcome all your feedback and comments.
On a personal note, I definitely hoped to post much more content here than I actually have. Unfortunately, my health took a drastic turn for the worse last year. I won’t go into detail about this, but let’s just say I’m far from being out of the woods yet. Because of this, my usual reading/reviewing/writing pace has slowed down considerably. I’ve not been myself, basically, but I hope to get fixed up and back in the swing of things this year. When that happens, I plan to bring back some of the regular, recurring features I started last year, as well as post more reviews, more interviews, and more SF&F coverage. Here’s to a healthier, happier 2013!
