X-Post: Liverpool University Press Free Content

Dear colleagues

Liverpool University Press is one of the UK’s oldest scholarly publishers and one of its youngest, being both 115 years old and 10 years old in April 2014.

The latter anniversary marks the relaunch and rebirth of the Press, an event that it is celebrating by making all of its journal content, including Extrapolation and Science Fiction Film and Television, available for free online during the month of April.

Extrapolation was founded in 1959 by Thomas D. Clareson and was the first journal to publish academic work on science fiction and fantasy; it continues to be a leading international journal in that specialized genre in the literature of popular culture.
