Europa SF, the “Pan-European Speculative Fiction Portal,” announced that it will shut down effective December 20, 2019 after seven years of providing English-language news and information covering European fandom. In a Facebook announcement, they cited hosting costs and portal maintenance as the main reasons, and are asking for anyone interested in taking over the portal and domain name to contact them.
[via File770. Edited 12/19/2019 to add the following:]
Cristian Tamas announced that new management has been found and Europa SF will relaunch in 2020 with a few changes. (See comment below.) The new management currently prefers to remain anonymous. Europa SF’s website and Facebook page will not experience any interruption in service during the transition period.
