Who Are You?
My name is Eoghann Irving (it’s Gaelic) and I’m a lifelong science fiction and fantasy fan. I’m a compulsive reader and viewer of the genres. I take what I think is a very positive view of the subject. I prefer to look at the good rather than picking endlessly at the bad.
What Is Solar Flare
Solar Flare is a blog that covers the worlds of fantasy and science fiction and offers news, reviews and opinions. In taking on a blog format I have chosen to emphasize my opinions and tastes over an agnostic reporting style. My aim is to provide an overview of what is happening throughout the fantasy and science fiction genres rather than detailing every single event. In doing so I dip into all media from television, to movies, to books, to comics.
Why Solar Flare?
Solar Flare was originally launched as my personal website some time around 1997 (the original site and template are long since lost). At that time it was not exclusively a Sci-Fi site, but simply covered all my interests.
When the site moved to the sflare.com domain in 1999 I decided to focus my attention on science fiction and fantasy exclusively. If you are curious what the site used to look like, check out the records.
Ove the years Solar Flare has taken on many different forms. I moved to the blog format in late 2003 and have stuck to that since then (though with several theme changes).
I hope to take Solar Flare to greater heights. In addition to resuming my own blogging recently I am actively seeking additional contributors so that Solar Flare can better cover the whole range of science fiction.
