Science Fiction Foundation

The Science Fiction Foundation is a science fiction and bring together those who read, write, study, teach, research or archive science fiction in Britain and the rest of the world." Science fiction writers Arthur C. Clarke and Ursula K. Le Guin were founding patrons; current patrons are Le Guin, Neil Gaiman and Professor David Southwood.[1]

Through 1995 the Foundation was based in the North East London Polytechnic in Barking, Essex, UK (now the University of East London). For much of this period the Director of the Foundation was Malcolm Edwards, who later moved to Gollancz, and then Orion.


SFF publishes the journal Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction three times a year and occasional critical works under the general title Foundation Studies in Science Fiction. It owns and supports the Science Fiction Foundation Collection, a research library that is currently one of the special collections at the Sidney Jones Library of the University of Liverpool.[1]
