The University of Liverpool houses the largest catalogued collection of science fiction in Europe, including the archives of John Wyndham, Brian Aldiss, Olaf Stapledon, Ellen Datlow, and many others. In this presentation, Science Fiction Librarian Dr. Phoenix Alexander will give an overview of the collections, talk about the work of acquiring, processing, cataloguing and exhibiting such materials, and present some highlights from the stacks. Including images of Arthur C. Clarke’s personal typewriter and Olaf Stapledon’s hand-drawn time charts (among other treasures), this presentation is unmissable for fans of sf’s history—and future!
