If you like my website, and/or if you've found it useful, please consider making a small donation to my Just Giving page, which I've set up just for this purpose. To begin with I'm collecting for a charity whose work I have benefitted from myself (and continue to do so): the British Heart Foundation. It would be great to raise £100 in the first month.

If you have already donated ... Thank You!

Authors: Science Fiction

This page lists science fiction books and their authors. It includes fantasy and horror.

Many science fiction books are listed in Authors: Series. Also, since there is obviously some subjectivity in the matter of what is science fiction and what isn't, you may find some in Authors: General that you think should be here. (Some are in both places.)
