The SF Encyclopedia Picture Gallery has been growing steadily since its launch in May 2013, with most of the cover images coming from John Clute’s collection and most of the uploading and captioning being handled by Roger Robinson. As well as our usual front cover scan, several hundred of these images also offer an “alternative view” below the main one, usually showing a wraparound cover at full width. Don’t forget to click on any Gallery image to see it at maximum size.
Today’s round-number landmark: there are now more than 15,000 images in the Gallery and more than 500 additional wraparound views. The 15,000th cover and 500th wrap both show an important book whose cover is mostly plain text: Katherine Burdekin’s Swastika Night (1937) as by Murray Constantine, in the famous Gollancz yellow-jacket format.
