News item dated 20 October 2014
The main SF Encyclopedia and SF Gateway sites are scheduled for downtime on Saturday 25 October, probably beginning at 9am BST and lasting for much of the day, while Hachette IT instals a server patch.
Pages and features hosted at the editors’ site [now incorporated into the main site] will remain available. These include What’s New, On This Day and the ever-growing Picture Gallery (now with well over 12,000 images), though their links to main-site entries will fail during the downtime period.
So far we’ve been building up the Gallery mostly from our own collections. But if you have a cover we’ve missed, we’ll be happy to include it with credit (“From the collection of YOUR NAME HERE”). Read more about our criteria here.
