The Database

We are developing an online database of Anglophone sources. These will be of three kinds:

i) Science Fiction: creative works with medical themes (novels, short stories, motion pictures, television, and so on).
ii) Science Faction: (bio)medical sources that are non-fictional, but which borrow the conventions and style of science fiction. These may be in many different media: (non-fiction) books, newspaper and magazine articles; documentary motion pictures and television; websites; promotional material; and so forth.
iii) Critical Sources: scholarly or other informed analysis of medical science fiction and/or faction.

The database will be publically searchable, and be seeded initially by the project team, but then opened to public contributions. We hope it will prove valuable as a resource for future research in the area.
