My Dark Masters at Gollancz have unveiled an interesting project – they’re using the latest digital e-book-ification technology to make available the entire backlists of various past (and in some cases current) giants of the genre, some of which are available dead tree style on their Science Fiction and Fantasy Masterworks lists, but a lot of which have been long out of print. All this will be index linked to a new e-edition of The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction along with all sorts of other of your twenty-first century network social hubbery antics.
The Gateway does not open for a couple of months (see what I did there?), but I and a few other current authors are on their front page talking about some of our favourite titles on the list. For me it’s Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser stories. Mmmmm, definitive.
