The Science Fiction Hub: a subject portal for science fiction studies

The SF Hub is an online subject portal for science fiction studies. It aims to facilitate research into science fiction and its related literary genres.

The Project has three components: Indexing the contents of un-indexed periodicals and amateur publications; Compiling web guides; Integration of these resources with the existing catalogue of science fiction books.

The SF Hub is based on the research resources in the Science Fiction Collections of The University of Liverpool's Special Collections and Archives, including the Science Fiction Foundation Collection. Our advanced search tools enables cross searching of published and unpublished sources including books, journals, fiction magazines, fanzines, journal articles and archives at Liverpool University Library. Links to a selection of research tools and sites elsewhere on the Web are also featured.
