Related Materials

Additional science fiction material held by the Houghton Library can be found by searching HOLLIS Classic for "SF" as "Other call number". This will provide a list of all the material specifically in the Science Fiction Collection, but not all material by some science fiction authors in author collections. For this reason, it is often preferable to search by author or title. A finding aid is available for a separate collection of fanzines and prozines, SF 3133.
