This page will attempt to list notable updates to science fiction, fantasy, and horror electronic publications seen each week, as an electronic counterpart to the weekly-updated Magazines page.

These are listings, not reviews -- except occasionally as [indicated in brackets].

This page does not include e-books (novels); for now, book-length e-publications will be listed in Locus or on Locus Online, as books, only if hardcopy editions are sent to us.

Electronic/web publishers: updates on this page will be greatly facilitated if you can send Locus Online regular e-mail notifications of new content/editions. (Thanks to those who do so already.)
