Hello. This is the newly-established blog for the editorial team of the third edition of the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. My name’s Graham Sleight, and I’m helping the editors John Clute, David Langford, and Peter Nicholls with the work on the project. (Believe me, there’s a lot of work…) The Encyclopedia will be launching later this year, and we already have a Twitter feed and a Facebook page. The new edition will be online in the first instance at www.sf-encyclopedia.com, published by our friends at Gollancz along with their “Gateway” e-books project. You can read more about our plans at this press release (PDF). There’s also information about the history of the Encyclopedia at Wikipedia.
We’ll be using this blog to talk in more detail about our plans as we approach the launch of the site, and then to answer comments and host discussions after we launch. For the moment, though, a general question. What would you like to know about the SFE? Leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to answer it. (And yes, this is partly to help me write an FAQ page for the website in the next few weeks…)
