Science fiction and fantasy : an examination of Swedish publishers publication and four public libraries´ acquisitions during the timeperiod 1989 to 1994 (English)
Abstract [en]

Publication of science fiction has a tradition in Sweden. Adult-fantasy does not. In recent years, the 1980's, Swedish publishers have realised how profitable fantasy is. Of the total publication of the two genres between 1989 and 1994, 54% was science fiction and 46% was fantasy. The reason for this even balance is that fantasy-books get reprinted more frequently than science fiction-books. However, there are more science fiction-titles published than fantasy-titles. The four public libraries that I have examined have similar methods of acquiring books. They have all, just about, acquired the same titles of fantasy while the science fiction acquired differs to a large degree. The four libraries • acquisitions are similar to those of the libraries connected to Bibliotekstjänst's database BURK. The differences between the four libraries lie in the number of science fiction and fantasy-books and the distribution of different languages the books were originally published in.
