Links to Bibliography Pages
SFandFantasy.co.uk is a collection of bibliographies listing Science Fiction and Fantasy books and magazines. Originally set up as a home for the Richard C. Meredith pages, the site has grown to be a record of the reading habits of a teenager in the 1980s and early 1990s. The long-term aim of the site is to include illustrated listings for a wide range of authors, artists and series.
The site currently includes listings for:
Richard C. Meredith (1937-1979) wrote science fiction novels and short stories in the 1960s and 70s. Never a prolific author, his unexpected death in 1979, at the age of just 41, came just as his writing career was beginning to flourish, with the publication of The Timeliner Trilogy by Playboy Press and an expansion of his repertoire into ghost stories.
Philip E. High (1914-2006) began to write science fiction short stories in the mid-50s, and was still writing when he died over fifty years later. His long writing career resulted in an extensive list of short stories published in magazines such as Nebula, New Worlds and Fantasy Adventures, as well as 17 novels and anthologies.
Eddie Jones (1935-1999) was a British science fiction illustrator. Initially known as a fan-artist, he later worked as a professional freelancer producing cover artwork for book and magazine publishers in Britain, Europe and the United States. Although probably best known for his Star Trek covers for Bantam Books, much of his output was for German publishers, including 103 covers for Bastei Lübbe's science fiction imprint and over 530 for Terra Astra magazine.
Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke and Robert A. Heinlein are informally known as the "Big Three" - the best known members of the group of authors who brought science fiction into a Golden Age in the middle years of the twentieth century.
Alan Dean Foster is the author of the Humanx Commonwealth and Spellsinger series of novels and also of a large number of standalone novels and film screenplay novelizations.
Patrick Moore was an English astronomer, writer, researcher, radio commentator and television presenter. In addition to many popular science books, he also wrote numerous works of science fiction.
J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973) is best known as the author of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. After his death, Tolkien's son Christopher edited many of his father's manuscripts for publication.
Fighting Fantasy is a series of single-player roleplay game-books created by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone. Puffin Books published the series between 1982 and 1995, when they allowed the books to go out of print. Wizard Books revived the series in 2002 when they began to reissue selected books from the original series along with a handful of new titles.
Nebula Science Fiction was British magazine edited by Peter Hamilton and published between 1952 and 1959. Its 41 issues included stories by authors including Robert Silverberg, Robert A. Heinlein, Brian Aldiss, Philip E. High, E.C. Tubb and Kenneth Bulmer.
Science Fiction Book Series currently includes bibliographies of four series of SF&F novels and collections.
