Statistics : 2022

(i) The Lancer Archives

In 2022, the two Lancer archives – LancerLovers and Lancer FanFiction (aka the new old Peter Brown archive!) – have gone from strength to strength. Over the entire year, through accessing the archives via the Lancer Fiction Gateway:

we had 105,164 visits by readers

from these 15 countries:

United Kingdom
United States)

viewing 764,143 pages

(where each page is a story written by…)

and leaving 5,396 comments to let Lancer authors know how much they’re appreciated



(ii) The Lancer Fiction Gateway

The Gateway is the directory of stories on LancerLovers and LancerFanFiction (as well as stories on external archives such as fanfiction-dot-net or AO3), the repository of our Resources section—which is really worth a look if you’re interested in writing westerns—and the place where we publish our monthly updates. The Gateway, then, is usually a place that people just pass through on their way to the author or story they want. 

However, until December 2022, it also hosted our collection of round robin stories, which we have just moved to a different subsite. So visitor numbers for this site will encompass readers of the round robins.

So, in 2022, the Gateway had

27,509 visitors

(from all the countries listed above)

viewing 234,022 pages

and leaving 23 comments



All the figures for the Gateway and the two archives are taken from:
– the number of views (that is, pages looked at);
– individual visitors recorded at the sites (most of them repeat visitors, of course, coming to read the stories);
– the country where they live;
– and number of comments left

All compiled automatically by between 01 January – 31 December 2022.

The numbers of authors and stories are compiled manually by Sandy.

  1. Wauw, what a lot of work ! Thank for doing what you all do for this GREAT site. It’s nice to know the countries where the readers are from.


  2. Fascinating statistics ladies!! And I love the way they’re presented. Isn’t it amazing to see so many countries represented. It just goes to show, that good taste is universal. 😉


    1. I certainly had a lot of fun putting it together this year! I was struck by the countries, too. The US, I expected. But Switzerland, Peru and Finland are very intriguing. I’d love to know if our readers there are regulars and how they got into Lancer.



  3. This is terrific information. I knew we had some Australia, UK, Germany, US, and South American countries but had no idea how vast our readership reach was growing.


  4. Isn’t it great to know that our beloved Lancer is still growing? Think back to 1968- who would have dreamed that 55 years later, it would be as popular as it is today? Long Live Lancer!


  5. Thank you to you all at Lancer Fiction Gateway. I love love love reading the stories, and find the articles in your Resources section very interesting. Lancer Lives On. Love from England.


  6. Jimminy Cricket and Shut the Door! You ladies have done a ton of work editing, posting, archiving, and on and on. We appreciate you VERY much!
