I'm a member of the Science Fiction Collections Consortium. That's one of those old-fashioned email listservs you may have heard about, where we communicate with one another about who has what, who's getting what, and who may wish to be in touch with whom. :-) We offer each other duplicates, occasionally commiserate about lack of space, and work together as best we can to coordinate our collecting and curating of science fiction and fantasy literature for the ages.
Now we have something new! We have pooled our time and collection lists for one-stop shopping for author papers. If you want to know who holds what, BEHOLD: THE SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY SPECIAL COLLECTIONS WIKI.
Elspeth Healey did much of the work to physically set it up, and it is being slowly populated by a whole passel of curators! Hal Hall has graciously shared his AboutSF spreadsheet of collections with us, and the wiki will integrate that info, and help us to keep it up to date!
We like to share! Go check it out, and find out what you need to know. :-) (You're welcome).
So, another thing I didn't get a chance to note because we were in the hospital is that there are FIVE stories on the Locus Recommended Reading List that appeared in either Apex Magazine or Glitter & Mayhem. This list forms the basis for the annual Locus Poll and Survey. So, if you enjoyed them, go vote for them!
“Karina Who Kissed Spacetime”, Indrapramit Das (Apex 6/13)
“If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love”, Rachel Swirsky (Apex 3/13)
“Ilse, Who Saw Clearly”, E. Lily Yu (Apex 5/13)
“Such & Such Said to So & So”, Maria Dahvana Headley (Glitter & Mayhem)
I'm so very, very proud that we've had such a strong showing this year!
Hey, look! Rich Horton's Best SF/F of the year Table of Contents is out!
And they include stories from Apex Magazine and Glitter & Mayhem!!!
“Call Girl” by Tang Fei (Apex)
“Ilse, Who Saw Clearly” by E. Lily Yu (Apex)
“Such & Such Said to So & So” by Maria Dahvana Headley (Glitter & Mayhem)
