The Big Sky Library is being developed on an ongoing basis as a directory of all speculative fiction available in English from and about Asia and the Asian diaspora. It is also a private library, currently based in Liverpool, England.

The library currently holds over 1,500 titles. While it functions as a private library, it is accessible for research purposes and enquiries are always welcome.
