Save Sci-Fi! The Campaign To Convert Rare Novels To Ebooks

The campaign to convert rare novels into ebooks
Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library
From The Guardian:
A specialist New York bookshop [Singularity & Co] is aiming to rescue out-of-print books and provide them for free online.

The Save the Sci-Fi campaign aims to bring back in to print one cult SF novel each month and provide it online for free. And if anyone needed proof this is a popular idea, over $52,000 raised through crowdfunding goes some way to providing it.

Save the Sci-Fi isn't the only project attempting to preserve the heritage of science fiction. The excellent SF Gateway, founded by Gollancz books, Britain's oldest and most influential publisher of SF, brings some of the genre's classic texts back in to circulation as ebooks – the covers of which will be familiar to thousands of readers who remember the original Gollancz yellow-jackets.
