A number of things have happened since I last posted. Let me see..
1. The SF Encyclopedia has continued to accrete updates – several hundred thousand words since we launched. Here, for instance, is the entry on John Christopher updated to reflect his recent death. (And if you’d like to see how you can support us, click here.)
2. Both the SFE and The Unsilent Library (the book of essays on Doctor Who that I edited with Simon Bradshaw and Tony Keen) have been nominated for the BSFA non-fiction award. This is very flattering of course – especially in the former case, since the SFE is not yet complete.
4. The new SF Masterworks edition of Budrys’s Rogue Moon has come out, with intro by me. Adam Roberts has done a fascinating introduction to the new Masterworks edition of Dangerous Visions, which also has a terrific cover by Vincent Chong.
5. I will be at Olympus, the UK Eastercon in April this year – at which, among other things, the BSFA Awards will be presented.
6. And, sadly, I won’t be at the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts this year, though I very much hope to be back there in 2013.
I think that’s enough for the moment…
