This is not exactly a site redesign, but the default page at news.ansible.co.uk has changed as of March 2009 from this former "front page" to the more useful and frequently updated Links page. A bad idea? If you think so, please tell the editor.
Ansible is David Langford's infamous British SF/fan newsletter, published since 1979. The current series (from 1991) was hosted for many years at Glasgow University, but the primary site is now news.ansible.co.uk, which also archives the first series (1979-1987).
The Runcible Ansible was a regular preview column in Eileen Gunn's webzine The Infinite Matrix, updated weekly until this sitebecame static at the end of 2005. (One last instalment appeared as part of a surprise site update in April 2006.) A printed digest of Ansible appears as "Ansible Link" in the now bimonthly Interzone.
The links in the right-hand panel will tell you more about Ansible than you could possibly wish to know.
The UK print edition is normally produced by Kall Kwik, St Mary's Butts, Reading; or, in times of haste or difficulty, on the Ansible HQ laser printer. But if I'm visiting London I go to – and highly recommend – The Print Centre in Store Street, off the Tottenham Court Road.
Times Literary Supplement readers who followed the link from this article may wish to search on "As Others" (in quotes) using the search box in the right-hand column – or to try the "As Others See Us" random selection page for this Ansible department.
