No longer for sale, but page retained for
its historical interest: SFVIEW.
The world's leading science fiction reference book, The
Encyclopedia of Science Fiction ed. John Clute and Peter Nicholls,
came out in a CD-ROM edition from Grolier in 1995 – with a truly
lousy interface. SFVIEW was produced as a much better Windows 95/98/XP
etc viewer that transforms, corrects, expands and adds essential
facilities to the user-hostile CD-ROM. It was eventually superseded by
the new (free) online
edition of the Encyclopedia launched in October 2011
and still being expanded.
