What is this Site?
These pages contain details of the contents of the magazines published by
the B.S.F.A. since it's foundation in 1959. They do not contain the
actual text of the articles and reviews that are listed here.
Why not? For reasons of:-
- permissions - too complex to obtain,
- time - how long would it take to scan over 500 magazines?,
- availability - I don't have all the issues,
- disk space - my free web space is limited.
What is the B.S.F.A.?
The B.S.F.A. is the British Science Fiction Association, which
was established in 1958 by a group of leading authors, readers,
publishers and booksellers, including Brian Aldiss who was the
first President of the BSFA and Edmund Crispin who became the
second President. The current President is
Arthur C. Clarke.
The official B.S.F.A. web site is at www.bsfa.co.uk.
