The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 18.0781 Wednesday, 28 November 2007

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.
