Subject:	Shakespeare and Science Fiction

Having been asked to talk on the topic "Shakespeare and Science Fiction" 
to an Honors Seminar, I have attempted to compile an applicable 
bibliography to distribute to those attending. I have checked the 
Shaksper archives, searched the Internet, and spoken with science 
fiction buffs (I have able to acquire most everything listed in the 
bibliography). The bibliography appears below. If I have omitted works 
of which list members are aware, I would appreciate people emailing me 
to let me know what work(s) I have missed.

In the list below, I have not included Shakespearean references found in 
Star Trek or any of the original series' spin-offs; those are readily 
found at any number of sites on the Internet (I will include them in my 
final bibliography). I have also left off a theatrical piece title 
RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET: SHAKESPEARE'S LOST ROCK AND ROLL 
MUSICAL, for while I was able to find the lyrics, I have been unable to 
find the script.

Thank you, in advance, for any help.
