Ground-breaking US Latinx Science Fiction Collection Opens

Share This:

University Archives and Special Collections In the Pollak Library at Cal State Fullerton announced the founding of the first collection of U.S. Latinx science fiction.

At the opening event on April 26, writers and editors Sarah Rafael García, Diana Burbano, and Rachelle Cruz will read from their work and answer questions on diverse futurisms. The event will be held in PLN-130 (in the Pollak Library), from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Works from the collection will also be on display.

A project website outlines related events, offers a “secret history” of U.S. Latinx science fiction, and much more. See

Not only is the collection groundbreaking and long overdue, but it builds on CSUF’s already strong holdings in Special Collections of science fiction (including the Philip K. Dick papers, the papers of Frank Herbert, rare Star Trek materials, and historic science fiction zines and pulp magazines). The project is made possible by grants from the Patrons of the Library, the Pollak Library, the Emeriti, and the English and anthropology departments of CSUF, as well as SFWA (the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association).
