2014

2014 — May 18th

Sevagram updated:

  • A new Article has been added, "A.E. van Vogt: Science Fiction, Phase Two" by Donald A. Ketchek. Donald previously contributed another fine article, "E. Mayne Hull: Another View," and it's a genuine pleasure to again be treated to his unique insight into van Vogt's work.
  • I've become rather bogged down in a huge backlog of new material for the Bibliography. I will try to add this new material in a piecemeal fashion over the coming weeks. In the meantime, my thanks and apologies to all those who have sent in material over the last several months and have been kept waiting (Lledó, Ben, and Yutaka in particular).

2013

2013 — November 6th

Sevagram updated:

  • New Article added, "Random Musings on van Vogt" by Daniele Bitossi (offered with my sincerest public apologies to Daniele for taking so ridiculously long to get it ready for publication!)
  • All of the images displayed within the Bibliography pages are now separate thumbnail files rather than just the full-size images scaled down. This dramatically reduces the time it takes to load a page, and makes page-scrolling more responsive. (See here for a good example.) Clicking on a thumbnail will, of course, still open the full-size version in a new tab.

    • — New covers, wallpapers, and illustrations sent in by Lledó. (Lledó was previously credited as "José." All his prior contributions have been updated with his preferred name.)
    • — Numerous ebook editions added.

2013 — October 5th

Sevagram updated:

  • Bibliography updated — a few new covers and illustrations sent in by visitors, as well as a handful of corrections. (Next month I plan on adding a few new bibliographic entries, along with more detailed descriptions for existing ones.)
  • Changelog page added — this keeps detailed track of all changes made to the bibliography, and will ensure the regular Site Updates page (the page you're looking at right now) remains clutter-free. To make things even easier, each update will also include a link to download all new images added on that date.
  • Downloads page updated — I've gathered together a few more files previously scattered across the Sevagram site, and now list them on the Downloads page for easier reference.
  • Links page updated — Yutaka Morita's van Vogt site has been redesigned, updated, and moved to a new URL.

  • minor decorative tweaks and technical improvements

Sevagram updated:

  • The new A.E. van Vogt bibliography, the Sevagram Index, is now online. Although it is already far larger than the old PDF Storysource bibliography, I will continue to add even more information, covers, illustrations, and foreign editions as well as creating additional indices as time permits.
  • Downloads page added. From here you can download all of the cover images and illustrations featured in the new bibliography with a single click. Also available for download are the old Earthlink version of the site, as well as an archived version of Magnus' Weird Worlds site for offline viewing. And, previously, various PDF files were linked to throughout the site. This single page makes it easier to find them all without wading through endless pages.
  • A short illustrated article has been added which discusses the Hoffman Electronics ads from 1962.
  • 2 photos added (both from the back cover of the 1948 edition of Out of the Unknown).
