Scope and Contents

In 1982 the Ransom Center acquired the 3,500-volume Science Fiction and Fantasy Collection formed by the specialist bookseller and bibliographer L. W. Currey. The Currey book collection emphasizes classic science fiction from 1818 (the publication date of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein) to 1919, especially American and British interplanetary fiction (1827-1914), and American utopian fiction (1888-1900). In addition to the book collection, the Ransom Center acquired Currey's manuscript collection of major 20th-century science fiction and fantasy writers.

The collection is organized into three series: I. Anthologies (4 boxes, 1 galley file), in alphabetical order by name of editor; II. Works (24 boxes, 1 oversize box, 2 galley files) in alphabetical order by name of author; and III. Indexes (1 box), which consists of Currey's detailed indexes to the book and manuscript collections.

The bulk of the manuscript collection consists of unmarked galleys or page proofs of science fiction anthologies and books, although it does contain a few items of correspondence and manuscript fragments, most notably a typed draft of Ray Bradbury's short story "The Terrible Conflagration Up at the Place." Other authors represented include Brian Aldiss, Isaac Asimov, L. Sprague de Camp, Ron Goulart, Frank Herbert, H. P. Lovecraft, Michael Moorcock, Mike Resnick, Robert E. Vardman with Victor Milan, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
