After six years, The HMSS Weblog has a new logo reflecting how it is now, formally, a stand-alone entity.
That’s because the Her Majesty’s Secret Servant, the e-magazine website, has gone offline after 17 years.
The HMSS Weblog was started in 2008. The original intent was for Her Majesty’s Secret Servant to have an Internet presence between issues.
Over time, The HMSS Weblog developed its own identity and voice while Her Majesty’s Secret Servant was published less often.
The last new issue of Her Majesty’s Secret Servant came out in the fall of 2011. An attempt was made to come out with an issue in late 2012 for reviews of Skyfall.
For a variety of real-life reasons, that never came about. Reviews were written but remained unpublished. They eventually ran in in May 2013 in The HMSS Weblog. It would be the last hurrah for Her Majesty’s Secret Servant.
Fan sites come and go. Her Majesty’s Secret Servant had a long run. For those who were contributors, there are a lot of good memories. Meanwhile, the publishers have their reasons for moving on.
Meanwhile, The HMSS Weblog will continue. The new logo only reflects what the blog has been for some time.
The HMSS Weblog will publish a mix of news and commentary about the world of James Bond and other spies. The latter category includes The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie that’s coming out next year as well as classic spy shows of yesteryear. The blog will also publish the occasional guest column. Onwards and upwards.
