Judith Proctor maintains Blake's 7: Judith Proctor's pages, usually referred to as Hermit.org.

It claims to be "The Largest Blake's 7 Site on the Web". The site contains extensive zine lists, the Hermit Library fanfiction archive, essays, fanzine reviews, the online Sevencyclopaedia, episode guide and scripts, as well as information on the careers of the Blake's 7 cast.

It archives a comprehensive index to every Blake's 7 fanzine published, with complete table of contents, full author names and publisher information, originally compiled by Sarah Thompson.

Before the site's launch in the late 1990s, print fanzine indexes existed, but Hermit.org may have been the first—and is certainly the most detailed—online fanzine listing in any fandom. Because the index was so far ahead of the online fandom curve, it is no surprise that not all the contributors knew that their information was going to be posted online and on Google searchable and indexed website. The site's information has proven invaluable to tracing the fandom's early print history.

The site was founded in May 1996. Judith announced on 31 May 2015 that site would be closing "soon".[1]
