SFF Stack Exchange is starting topic challenges

scifi.stackexchange.com logo

A new year is beginning, and 2021 brings new change to SFF Stack Exchange. The site turns one decade old this month, on 11 January 2021, and its eleventh year is being marked with a new program of monthly topic challenges.

First up is the famous sci-fi writer Isaac Asimov, the topic of the month for January 2021. SFF welcomes all (on-topic) questions about Asimov works during this month, and a list will be kept on meta. Bounties may be awarded at the end of the month.

For future months’ topics, a proposals thread is now open for suggestions on the meta site. Whichever answer gets most upvotes there by the end of January will become the February 2021 topic challenge.

All welcome to participate!
