This is a community service announcement. Thanks to our recent integration of classic SFF titles from across the Hachette Group of publishers, a number of our authors’ offerings have increased their score on the Classic SF Awesomeness scale. (What? It’s a thing. It’s absolutely a thing.)
And who, exactly, are these authors? We’re glad you asked. Four is the number of the authors, and the number of the authors shall be four. Three is not the number of authors, unless it is understood that you shall then proceed to four. Five is right out. Etc. etc.
Over the course of this week, we’ll be shining the spotlight on these four titans of SF, beginning (in alphabetical order) with geostationary satellite-inventing scourge of distinguished-but-elderly scientists, Sir Arthur C. Clarke. Gateway already had a goodly number of Arthur C. Clarke‘s works before our sister companies’ titles were integrated, but it is with unalloyed delight that we add the seminal 2001: A Space Odyssey to the site. Hurrah!
