The Free Searchable Science Fiction Encyclopedia that You Can Read Right Now

Illustration for article titled The Free Searchable Science Fiction Encyclopedia that You Can Read Right Now

Back in July, we reported that the Science Fiction Encyclopedia would be going online as a free, searchable resource — with 3.2 million words, as opposed to the 1.3 million words the Hugo-winning second edition had in 1993. Now it's up, and it's a pretty neat resource. It's especially good for some writers who are underrepresented elsewhere online — the entry on the massively underrated William Barton is pretty extensive, for example. The editors hope to expand the encyclopedia to over 4 million words, but it's already pretty darn handy. [SF Encyclopedia via JS Online]

DISCUSSION

Hey, CJA, thanks for the W. Barton mention. I absolutely LOVE that author, I count his works as high literature, transcending the genre. I've read everything he's done.
