G’day to you from 480 million light years hence in the direction of the constellation of Leo. That’s it, close to Denebola. There are seven of us grouped out here, and I think we were first spotted by our namesake astronomer observed at Birr Castle in the field of view of the 72-inch "Leviathan of Parsonstown", the biggest telescope in the world back in 1845. Irish and all.

Top o the cosmos to you. Welcome all sentients. This is the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Copeland’s Septet.

Hi, I’m Nuke, your host and editor. Thanks for joining me. Stick around for the next twenty minutes or so for two stories from the pages of the longest running online speculative magazine down under. Issue 215 is out now. Go read it. But not right now. Stick around for Psychology 102. That’s two stories, a recent one about positive intervention, and a flashback to the AntiSF in year 2000 for some forgiveness.
