The SF Gateway is an initiative of the Orion Publishing Group,
home to the UK's oldest science fiction publisher, Gollancz.
As an imprint, SF Gateway is an eBook publisher of classic SF
and Fantasy. It is a sister imprint to Gollancz that, as a rule,
focuses on SF's past, while Gollancz looks to its future.
As a website, SF Gateway is part catalogue site, highlighting
and promoting the thousands of eBooks the imprint publishes; it is
part gateway (pardon the inevitable pun) to the online retailers
from whom these eBooks can be bought; part social network for
readers who wish to discuss and recommend authors and books with
their fellow enthusiasts; and part commentary/blog site.
As an ethos, SF Gateway is the attempt by a company with
tremendous respect for the history of the field to ensure that the
great works of SF & Fantasy's heritage are not lost to the
harsh economic realities of modern commercial print publishing.
The SF Gateway Advisory Board
Established to coincide with the launch of the SF Gateway
website, the Advisory Board was empanelled to act as ambassadors
for the project and to be a forum for the discussion of ways
in which we can promote the eBooks, the site and its content, while
remaining true to the spirit of project: to make available for the
modern reader, the vast numbers of hitherto out-of-print works that
are the heritage of the genre.
The SF Gateway Advisory Board is comprised of:
- Stephen Baxter, Philip K. Dick & John W. Campbell Memorial
Award-winning author, and president of the British Science Fiction
- Pat Cadigan, two-time Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning
- Malcolm Edwards, Deputy CEO and Publisher, Orion Publishing
- Nicola Griffith, James Tiptree, Jr & Nebula Award-winning
- Darren Nash, Digital Publisher, Gollancz
- Robert Silverberg, multiple Hugo & Nebula Award-winning
author and SFWA Grand Master
Queries for the Advisory Board should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The SF Gateway website is administered by Digital Publisher
Darren Nash, Marketing Executive Jennifer McMenemy, Senior
Publicity Manager Jonathan Weir, and such members of Orion staff as
they might from time to time direct.
In addition to those listed above, a number of community members
have been appointed to act as moderators to the forum. While we
hope and trust that all posters to the forum will comport
themselves according to the community guidelines, we recognise
that there may occasionally be need for comments and/or behaviour
to be moderated.
