THE STEVE RASNIC TEM & MELANIE TEM

COLLECTION AT TEXAS A&M

           

So what’s happening here? This month I removed all the contributor’s copies from my and Melanie’s lawyer’s bookcases; emptied the manuscripts, correspondence, contracts and notes from our filing cabinets; removed over half the awards from our trophy case, boxed it all up, and shipped it to Texas A&M’s Cushing Library where it will become The Steve Rasnic Tem and Melanie Tem Collection (over 1000 items), part of their Fantasy & Science Fiction Research Archives (along with similar collections from Michael Moorcock, Howard Waldrop, Andre Norton, Lisa Tuttle, George RR Martin, etc and our old friend Ed Bryant). I even threw in my runs of Ghosts & Scholars and All Hallows. There our archives will be available to scholars for years to come. Thanks to curator Jeremy Brett for making all this possible.

About Steve

Steve Rasnic Tem's short fiction has been compared to the work of Franz Kafka, Dino Buzzati, Ray Bradbury, and Raymond Carver, but to quote Joe R. Lansdale: "Steve Rasnic Tem is a school of writing unto himself." His 470 plus published stories, sixteen collections, and eight novels have garnered him the British Fantasy Award, the World Fantasy Award, two International Horror Guild Awards, and four Bram Stoker Awards.
