In 1975 Peter Nichols, John Clute and Brian Stableford launched a project that would ultimately last for more than thirty six years, exceed four million words of careful scholarship, occupy at least three publishers, win many awards, and be recognised as the most important reference work in the science fiction: The Science Fiction Encyclopedia.

This week encyclopedist, writer, editor, and critic John Clute joined Gary and I to discuss the coming September launch of the third edition of the SFE, the history of the project, and the exciting SF Gateway project which is being launched by Gollancz at around the same time.

As always, we'd like to thank John for joining us, and hope you enjoy the podcast!
