New Releases for June: an Explanation

The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed a large number of new books appearing on the SF Gateway today – 76 of them, in fact, and you can find them here. However, if you click through to any of them, you’ll find that the retailer you’ve chosen says the book is not on sale until Thursday 27th June.

This is correct, we’re afraid. The database system that produces the feed to power our website and send bibliographic information out into the world, is down for a few days for essential work, so in order to ensure that the information was actually sent to the website, we triggered the feed two days early.

Apologies for any inconvenience but at least you can pre-order them – and you’ll only have to wait another two days to read them.

Normal service will be resumed for July, just as soon as we are sure what is normal anyway.*
