  Discussion of written science fiction and fantasy.

  A group for discussing the general SF which is seen by its audience in
  written form, whether printed or online.  Note that many more specific
  groups in rec.arts.sf.* exist to pull some traffic from this group,
  but in general, this is where new releases are discussed, informal
  reviews given, continuity topics discussed, authors compared, and is
  the starting point for many threads which should eventually be moved
  to more appropriate groups.  (Please cooperate when the call is put
  forward to move a discussion to a more specific group.)
