The Science Fiction collection at Liverpool University

This week Roy Gray and I were lucky enough to visit Liverpool University’s staggering collection of over 35,000 books and 2,500 periodicals. The Science Fiction collections in the University Library’s Special Collections & Archives comprise Europe’s largest catalogued collection of SF material, including the Science Fiction Foundation Collection and a wealth of literary archives.

Andy Sawyer , who manages this treasure trove, based in the Sydney Jones Library, was very generous with his time and encyclopaedic knowledge.

My own personal highlight was seeing the manuscript for John Wyndham’s  The Day of the Triffids.

Thanks again to both Roy and Andy!

    Roy’s chappbook, The Joy of Technology, is in the archive and is available from Pendragon Press.
