The Eaton Fanzine Collection

The Eaton Fanzine Collection, numbering more than 100,000 issues, grew out of the collections of four prominent fans: Terry Carr, Fred Patten, Bruce Pelz, and Rick Sneary. Other fans have also donated to this growing collection, including Richard Brown, Marty Cantor, Mike Glyer, William Haskell and David Langford. Part of The Eaton Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy, it is housed in the Special Collections Department of the University of California, Riverside Libraries, located on the fourth floor of the Tomás Rivera Library. The collection attracts fans and scholars from around the world.


In 1969, UC Riverside became the first academic institution to develop a dedicated science fiction and fantasy collection for the purposes of research and education. Since then, the Eaton Collection has grown to become an extraordinarily comprehensive, deep-rooted, rich collection of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and related genres in the literature of the fantastic.
