Merry Christmas!

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 January. However, we wouldn’t leave you high and dry, with nothing to distract you over the holidays, so for the week between Christmas and New Year, we’ll be re-pulishing a few of our favourite posts from the archive. Maybe you missed them first time round? If so, here’s looking at you, kid . . .

We’d also like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to our many readers for supporting us over the year and helping to keep great classic SF alive and read! We wish you all a Merry Christmas or whichever religious of secular end-of-year festival you choose to observe, and hope you have a happy and safe holiday – full of lots of awesome spaceships and robots, of course.

See you in 2016.
