A World Of Science Fiction

February 26, 2008

The Internet Speculative Fiction Database is hosted by The Cushing Library Science Fiction and Fantasy Research Collection and Institute for Scientific Computation at Texas A&M University. The ISFDB is a community effort to catalog works of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. It links together various types of bibliographic data: author bibliographies, publication bibliographies, award listings, magazine content listings, anthology and collection content listings, and forthcoming books. It also has a list of top 100 science fiction novels as voted by users.


The Baen Books (publisher of many popular science fiction authors) website allows users to read sample chapters, figure out the order of books in a series and when the next book in a series is due out.

And finally, io9.com is a blog about everything science fiction including books and movies. It’s written and maintained by people who are definitely, happily, obsessed with science fiction. Reminder: Don’t be shy about letting us at the Library know if there are any sci-fi materials you’d enjoy borrowing. E-mail us at: staff@essexlib.org
