About Dawn Bovasso, the bibliographer.
When I began this project, I was a college librarian and English instructor, which is basically what motivates (and qualifies) me to do this project. I spent several years at the Boston Public Library in the Rare Books Department, and getting my hands dirty there was incredibly helpful for this kind of project. Now I’m on the digital side, in creating reading experiences for BN.com. You can look at my full CV and portfolio or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout my research, I have had the privilege of being a part of an incredible community of librarians and fans devoted to science fiction studies. This project would not have been possible without the amazing and generous help of the University of California, Riverside (Eaton Collection); University of Maryland, Baltimore County (Coslett/FAPA Collection); Temple University Special Collections; Boston University Archive Collections; New York Public Library; WorldCat/OCLC; Brendan Rapple, the catalyst for this idea; Elisabeth Waters for her careful analysis and corrections; and the original fans of sci-fi, particularly Robert Lichtman.
And my good friend Andrew, who every 6 months for 5 years asked, “Hey, how’s that bibliography?” Hey Andrew – it’s great. Here it is. Thank you.
