  Omit cross-reference entries  

News item dated 9 May 2024

To quote John Clute on Facebook, reacting to our site update of 6 May: "Another periodic ruthless blurb. We've just gone over 7,000,000 words, almost ten times the length of the 1979 edition, more than five times longer than 1993. We're still a dozen short of 20,000 entries but hey. Have also reached 34,000 scans in the Picture Gallery, most of them of first editions (but also retitlings and revisions). We are homing in on 250,000 internal hyperlinks, way better than double the 2011 figure, when we went online with Gollancz.

"– We'll never change our title, which has been in our bones early and late, but our entries today do reflect the fact that genre sf is now a large raft in a huger flood...."

(A little later in May the SFE entry count passed 20,000 and the hyperlink count 250,000.)
