“Gollancz, the SF and Fantasy imprint of the Orion Publishing Group, announces the launch of the worldâ€™s largest digital SFF library, the SF Gateway, which aims to make thousands of out-of-print titles by classic genre authors available as eBooks.
Building on the remarkable success of Gollanczâ€™s Masterworks series, the SF Gateway has launched with more than a thousand titles by close to a hundred authors. It will build to 3,000 titles by the end of 2012, and 5,000 or more by 2014. Wherever possible, the SF Gateway will offer the complete backlist of the authors included.
The Gateway site is designed to act as a major community hub and social network for SF readers across the world, allowing them to interact with each other and recommend titles and authors. The site will include forums, blogs, regular promotions, and is envisaged to become the natural home on the net for anyone with an interest in classic SFF.
Authors featured in the launch include such names as Marion Zimmer Bradley, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick, Frank Herbert, Alice B. Sheldon (James Tiptree, Jr), Robert Silverberg, Kate Wilhelm and Connie Willis.”
