Science Fiction

The UT Libraries Science Fiction collection has been built intentionally since the 1970s, when Harold W. Billings, the director of the Libraries from 1972-2003, personally curated and donated science fiction novels for the Perry-Castañeda Library. We continue to build the collection with: 

  • Award winners, including annual Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards 
  • Scholarly criticism of science fiction books, film, and television 
  • Notable films 
  • Graphic novels and comic books
  • Works by authors from diverse and marginalized backgrounds 
  • Works in translation and in languages other than English
