About the Museum of Science Fiction

The nonprofit Museum of Science Fiction (http://www.museumofsciencefiction.org/) will be the world’s first comprehensive science fiction museum, covering the history of the genre across the arts and providing a narrative on its relationship to

the real world. The Museum will show how science fiction continually inspires individuals, influences cultures, and impacts societies. Also serving as an educational catalyst to expand interest in the science,

technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) areas, the Museum uses tools such as mobile applications and wifi-enabled display objects to engage and entertain.

MOSF Journal of Science Fiction seeks to uphold the spirit of educated inquiry and speculation through the publication of peer-reviewed, academic articles, essays and book reviews exploring the myriad facets of science fiction. The journal welcomes unsolicited, original submissions from academics around the world, with an emphasis on the interdisciplinary and innovative history of science fiction. Issues are published three times a year and each issue will feature 8 to 12 academic articles.

    There seems to be a glitch in this website today. Every time I log in under Disqus, it tells me I have 2 new messages. I check them and the 2 goes away, but the next time I log in the 2 is back, and it’s the same 2 messages.
