Downtime and Sponsorshop
17 April 2021
Problems with the Hachette web server made SFE access
difficult or impossible from 9 April to 13 April; our thanks to
Mike Webb of Hachette IT for carrying out the traditional ritual of
poking the server with a big stick.
The news that Orion/Gollancz and the SFE will be
parting amicably in October 2021 has already led to offers of help
and sponsorship. We are grateful to acknowledge significant
donations from Andy Richards of Cold Tonnage Books (a
long-time supporter of this project), Joe Haldeman and David J Lally, while
the Dublin 2019 Worldcon
committee and Handheld
Press have offered further support.
David Langford has very nearly finished creating the alternative
SFE site (looking closely similar to this one, but with several
improvements) which will be officially unveiled in October.
