Ever wanted to read some classic Science Fiction yet been unable to find a copy of your favourite author’s work? I myself have been fruitlessly looking for a copy of E. E. “Doc” Smith’s Lensmen series for a while now. Or, say you’re a fan of Murray Leinster. His works are out there, but few and far between.
Well, someone’s decided to make sure that visions of future past don’t disappear into history. The good people over at engadget have a nice little profile of a bookstore in New York (Brooklyn to be specific) whose proprietors have dedicated themselves to bringing lost and out of copyright Science Fiction back into the mainstream.
Singularity&Co have dedicated themselves to:
Save the SCIFI!
Singularity&Co. is a team of time traveling archivists longing for futures past.
Each month, our subscribers help us choose a vintage, out of print scifi book to rescue (with the rightsholders’ permission). We’re bringing forgotten 20th century scifi into the 21st.
They’ve dedicated themselves to scanning rare and classic Science Fiction books into a digital format and then releasing them as ebooks. If you’re an aficionado of classic SciFi, these are the people to watch!
