|As with so many projects, this one started off in one direction
and rapidly got diverted into a completely different one!
The web-site was originally dedicated to bibliographies, specifically those related to science fiction and fantasy authors, and introduced a list of fiction magazines (with particular emphasis on which had or had not been indexed) as a useful reference. However, this latter list grew and grew with time (particularly after I joined the Fictionmags mailing list) and it now occupies about 95% of the website (and 99% of the effort devoted to it!).
It is therefore divided into three (very unequal) sections:
|This section covers bibliographies devoted to a single author (or at most a small number of authors), concentrating on those who have devoted most of their output to the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres.|
|This is the section that attempts to document all known fiction magazines,
in varying levels of detail. As there are over 7500 of these, they
are also organised into various different subsets for those who, for instance,
are not wildly interested in 19th century magazines. A fuller description
of these can be found by following the link to the left, or for those who
want to jump straight to the chase, the following are the main subdivisions:
|This final section just contains any other bibliographies that seemed to be of passing relevance to the previous sections, not least bibliographies of bibliographies in those categories.|
This site is also the proud host of a number of other projects that I heartily recommend:
I am extremely interested to hear of any bibliographies or magazine indexes that are not listed herein, particularly if they are still available, or even to hear from anyone else who shares my obsession for bibliographies. Please note, however, that, with the exception of my own Galactic Central series of bibliographies, I cannot supply copies of any of the bibliographies mentioned herein. Similarly, in general, I cannot supply any of the magazines featured on this site (nor copies of items published therein).
I am also interested to hear from anyone who has any form of project related to SF/magazine bibliography/indexing that needs a home on the web.
Hoping to hear from you!
