Canadian SF Works Database

Wikitastic!

Marcel Gagné and Robert J. Sawyer have launched a new wiki for the Canadian SF community just in time for the Prix Aurora Awards season–the Canadian SF Works Database.

The Canadian SF Works Database is meant to be:

a collaborative storehouse of knowledge about everything that is Canadian SF. The raison d’être of the Canadian SF Works Database is to provide a collaborative storehouse of knowledge about everything that is Canadian SF. Why? Every year, usually at awards time, a few people scramble madly to assemble a list of the works published for that 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 if you have the time and the information, help us build a comprehensive list of Canadian science fiction (and fantasy) published by year.

So don’t forget to update as you read!

For more on the genesis of the wiki, see Rob’s blog post here.

PS: I love the logo 🙂
