Groan. It had to happen - a dedicated mobile phone service for science fiction fans.

A new phone service is now available, aimed exclusively at sci-fi, fantasy and horror fans. The service is the first in Europe to offer only genre material and offers a range of downloadable items starting from 25p.

Called SCIFISMS, the service has been launched by a conventions organiser, which "saw a gap in the market and created a special site". Hmmm.

'There just isn't a dedicated service like this,' says Robert Dyer, head of UK Conventions. 'I feel this is just what sci-fi, fantasy and horror fans have been looking for.' There may be a reason for that, Rob!

The service includes news and gossip from television shows like Buffy/Angel, Star Trek: Enterprise, Farscape, Doctor Who & Red Dwarf plus forthcoming movie, gaming and home entertainment releases.

Visitors can access downloadable wallpapers and a variety of other services including sci-fi news sent daily, direct to mobiles, plus sci-fi jokes and poems. Check em out at your peril at
