This Week Through the Gateway

Welcome to your weekly round-up of what’s been happening over at the SF Gateway, our sister site devoted to classic science fiction.

This week’s spotlights are . . .

Author of the Week is the wonderful Nicola Griffith, winner of the Nebula, Tiptree and World Fantasy Awards among many others.

The New Book of the Week,

‘I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe . . .’ ~ SF Masterwork of the Week can only be the influential Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

And this week’s Editors’ Choice is Pat Cadigan’s brilliant story collection Patterns.


Meanwhile, over at the blog . . .

We started the week in sombre tone, paying our respects to the recently departed Sir Patrick Moore.

On Tuesday we wished SF Fandom a happy 83rd birthday.

On Wednesday we reminded you all about the massive SF Gateway end-of-year sale.

Thursday was all about Patterns – Pat Cadigan’s awesome story collection, which this week’s Editors’ Choice (as noted a mere 50 words ago – don’t tell me you’ve forgotten already?).

And finally, on Friday, we commended your eyes and ereaders to seek out our Author of the Week, the award-winning Nicola Griffith.


And that was the penultimate working week of the year over at SF Gateway.


Mind-controlling aliens are telepathically commanding us to remind you that you can subscribe to the SF Gateway blog here or follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest. No, really.


I’m Gollancz’s Digital Publisher. People ask me what that means and, upon comparing answers, find that I’ve told everyone something different. That’s because it’s the future and it’s changing all the time; at least, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. When I’m not digitising thousands of classics for our fabulous SF Gateway project, I like to bore people rigid about SF & Fantasy, comics, cricket, football and Belgian beer. This can only be prevented by bringing me drinks.
