General Resources

The Internet Speculative Fiction Database: Contains a fairly comprehensive history of publication for many -- if not most -- science fiction and fantasy books and magazines. Extremely useful if trying to identify bibliographic information for older works, or past editions of reprinted works.

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Research Database: Run by Texas A&M's University Library, this database allows scholars to search for critical works that have been published on certain sf authors or topics. This database indexes works published in scholarly journals as well as reviews of sf books.
