We’re here to continue our original mission and SAVE MORE SCI FI! But we can’t do it without YOUR HELP!
We’ve seen too many sci fi books that are out of print, out of circulation, and, worst of all (given the subject matter) unavailable in any digital format. Meaning, as of now, these books may never be seen in the future imagined in their pages. That’s just not right.
Here’s what we’re doing about it: Each month we choose one great classic, obscure or otherwise fascinating sci-fi book that’s no longer in print and not available online, track down the copyright holder and/or author (if they’re still around), acquire or otherwise clear the copyright, and publish the title as an e-book, for little or no cost. Our supporters and followers help us find titles they remember and love, and we share the stories behind the stories, including in each e-book what we learned about the novel, the author and their history along the way.
This is part adventure, part detective story, and part story about the intersection of the past and the future. So as we dig into a particular book, and pull on the various threads that we need to to make sure we can share it without taking something that isn’t ours, we end uncovering the story of that book. We plan on sharing that story, telling you what we learn about the books, their authors, their histories, and the adventures we had bringing it to you.
Rescuing beloved, forgotten, fondly remembered, out-of-print and otherwise lost sci-fi books by bringing them into the digital domain is more than a labor of love – it’s our way of celebrating visions of futures past that shaped the way we live now. But while it’s all in a day’s work for your average, ordinary, time-traveling bookshop, WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP!
