From Fancyclopedia 3
Jump to navigation Jump to search

An online, quotation-based lexicon of stfnal words begun in 2001 as the Science Fiction Citations Project, a crowd-sourced effort of the Oxford English Dictionary, edited by then-OED staffer Jesse Sheidlower, and independently relaunched by him in 2021.

Many fans contributed citations. The dictionary is sanctioned by the OED, though it is no longer formally affiliated with it.

It includes about 1,800 separate entries, with display type in Sagittarius, a new typeface “for beauty, wellness, and galactic conquest” by type designer Jonathan Hoefler.
