You are here

Welcome!

You have arrived at the Canadian SF Works Database, a collaborative storehouse of knowledge about the world of professional Canadian science fiction and fantasy writing, publishing, and art founded June 6, 2007, by Marcel Gagné and Robert J. Sawyer, who continue to administer the site.

Why did we create this? Every year, usually at awards time, a few people scramble madly to assemble lists of the works published in the previous year. These lists help determine works that are eligible for those awards. Sometimes the lists are reasonably complete and accurate, sometimes they aren't, and sometimes they are just plain unavailable thereby leaving your favourite SF story in no-award purgatory. Oh, the humanity! Who knows what to do? Who can help?

You do and you can! Here's how: Register, log in, and help us build a comprehensive list of Canadian science fiction and fantasy fiction and art published each year.
