The Big Sky Library is being developed on an ongoing basis as a bibliographic resource for all speculative fiction available in English from and about Asia and the Asian diaspora.

Based in Liverpool, England, the library currently holds well over 1,500 titles. While it functions as a private collection, it is accessible for research purposes and enquiries are always welcome.
