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.
