Signing off for Christmas
What a year it’s been: full of events and, sadly, many more of them bad than good (any year that starts off with the death of David Bowie has really not got off on the best foot). To be honest, we’re quite glad it’s over; we could do with a drink. Before we sign off, […]
The Return of the Gateway Christmas Sale!
Remember back in June, before the world went completely mad, we announced the Gateway Essentials initiative?** We’ve been delighted by the response to the Essentials, with many on social media complimenting the new covers (with one or two exceptions; you know who you are – and you’re off our Christmas card list!). So, for the […]
Gateway Essentials: James Blish
As we’re sure you know, yesterday we announced the creation of the Gateway Essentials list. Its continuing mission: to make it easier for us to make it easier for you to find your way through the 3,000-plus titles and 300-plus authors currently on the Gateway.

Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2016. Read more books. Starting now. Well, maybe not right now – wait until you’ve worked off all the festive good will (and the painkillers have started to kick in . . .). Happy New Year.
Mulled wine! Roast Turkey! Bing Crosby! Human sacrifice! OK, maybe not that last one. The point is it’s the Festive Season and SF Gateway is now closed for the duration. You’ll still be able to buy all of your favourite classic SF&F from your preferred retailer, but we won’t be talking about them here until […]
Explaining the New Cover Style
Eagle-eyed readers will have spotted a new cover style appearing on some recent Gateway titles; for instance: So, what gives? Well, a couple of things. Firstly, we’ve published a lot of titles over the last three-and-a-bit years and now, inevitably, the production line is slowing down, as ‘new’ titles are becoming harder to find. So […]
Marion Zimmer Bradley Titles
The estate of author Marion Zimmer Bradley has decided not to renew our licence to publish her titles – which include The Mists of Avalon and the Darkover series – which expired on April 26th, 2015. Therefore, effective immediately, Marion Zimmer Bradley books will not be available in Gateway editions from any retailers. At the […]
Clearing the Air
Given the amount of correspondence of a remarkably similar nature, which we’ve received over the last month or so, it seemed like a good time for us to clear the air and debunk what seems to be a popular myth: namely, that if an author doesn’t currently appear on SF Gateway, it means that we […]
