The main SF Encyclopedia and SF Gateway sites are scheduled for downtime from Saturday 4 July to an expected 6pm BST on Sunday 5 July, while Hachette IT prises the massive cowling off its Babbage server and cleans out the card-punch chads. Pages and features hosted here at the "Editorial Home" will remain available. These include What's New, On This Day, Recent Deaths, Timeline, the 1997 Encyclopedia of Fantasy and the ever-growing Picture Gallery, though their links to main-site entries will not work during the downtime period.
Bar charts irregularly updated from the Statistics page.
