As we look back on 2012, others are looking ahead to what 2013 may have to offer fans of speculative fiction, film and television.
At the Guardian, Damien Walter offers his predictions about the year's big stories - the resurgence of serial fiction and space-set stories, M. John Harrison's prominence in this year's awards, Neil Gaiman's American Gods making it big on TV, and a higher speculative fiction profile in the mainstream.
Meanwhile, the writers at Hero Complex offer a list of thirteen "must see" movies due out between ow and December 31, 2013 - essentially a round-up of the big-budget would-be blockbusters scheduled for release this year. (More on this later.)
