Regular SF Encyclopedia updates continue; there is
still much work to be done. The 2 May presentation of the Arthur C Clarke Award to
The Testament of Jessie Lamb by Jane Rogers naturally led to a new entry
for this author. The BSFA Award, James Tiptree Jr Award, Philip K Dick Award and Pilgrim Award articles have also
been updated with the 2012 winners, with more to come as this
year's award season continues.
One award that gave us great pleasure was the European SF Award
as Best Promoter (of the sf genre), presented to the SF
Encyclopedia at the recent Eurocon in Zagreb and accepted on
behalf of the editors by Martin Hoare.
Later. We've been talking for some weeks about having
nearly three and a half million words of SF
Encyclopedia text on line; this threshold was actually passed
with the 16 May 2012 update.
