It’s a New Year for Lytherus, which means great things are coming!


As I’m sure you’ve noticed, it’s 2012 now. As scifi fans, we chuckle at the notion that the world will end in 2012 — but hey, we might as well live the year as if it’s our last! … Which means we’re going to have one rockin’ year for our visitors, filled with even better news coverage, more stellar fantasy, scifi, and horror reviews, and an incredible line-up of original content, including editorials, “Lytherus Static Pages” (coming soon), partnerships, and more. We’ll also be launching a new weekly giveaway platform on Lytherus, where visitors will have an opportunity to win incredible books, movies, and more THREE TIMES per week during 2012!

Suffice to say, we have a lot planned for the coming year and are incredibly excited to be sharing this with you. We also want to thank each and every one of you for your support over the past year as Lytherus continues to grow and evolve into one of the internet’s best fantasy, scifi, and horror news, review, and information sources.

As a reminder, Lytherus is always looking for new writers to join our growing team of fantasy/scifi/horror contributors. We have a massive amount of open slots ready to be filled with passionate and dedicated writers, and if you feel that you fit the bill, we’d love to hear from you. Don’t tell anyone, but we heard that Lytherus offers some stellar perks to its writers, including press access to events and conventions, advance copies of books, comics, and movies, and much more…

As a thank you for your readership over the past year, here’s a preview of what’s to come on Lytherus in 2012:

  • A complete re-design!
  • “Lytherus Static” — Ultimate destinations for your favorite topics (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, The Hobbit, etc.). These pages will feature a whole host of topic-specific content, including trailers, images, summaries, news collections, and more. Our goal is to make navigating Lytherus’ content as easy as possible. With Lytherus Static, you’ll be able to visit Lytherus to quickly check news on a specific topic (or multiple topics) on days where you may not have enough time to check out the full news feed
  • Reviews archive — We’ve heard you loud and clear: you’d love a way to better browse our incredible library of book, movie, game, comics, and anime reviews. It’s coming soon!
  • Interview archive — We’re incredibly proud of the collection of interviews we’ve hosted over the past year and will be working hard to better feature these on the website
  • Partnerships — Can’t say much… but we can tell you that we have a number of incredible partnerships in the works with some top-notch internet destinations!
  • We’ve heard word of a Lytherus Podcast in the works…

We’re also always looking to hear from our visitors on ways to improve Lytherus! We have a number of improvements coming over the next few months, some of which we are excited to share with you, but we also know there’s more we can do to help Lytherus grow and evolve into the ultimate destination for fans of the three best genres out there. If you have ideas, please share them either by emailing us or leaving a comment

We thank you for sharing an incredible 2011 with us and are excited to journey into 2012 with you!
