You may have read the recent article in the San Diego Union-Tribune about the world-class science fiction collection donated to the SDSU Library by Escondido resident Edward Marsh. If you haven’t, you should, because this is a pretty spectacular collection of rare books, art, and artifacts. Let’s just say that when I saw a fraction of it arranged on the tables in Special Collections, I felt like I was looking at the El Dorado of science fiction, comics, fantasy, and pulp fiction. It’s breathtaking. Most of the collection is from the golden age of science fiction, and most of the works and photographs are signed first editions.

Below are some of the photos I took when Special Collections held a preview.
