‘It’s life Jimmy, but not as we know it’ – Science Fiction in Scotland

Visited the new Treasures exhibition at the NLS today, featuring Science Fiction from Scotland.  I think the Curator’s had a lot of fun putting this selection together. On the one hand, examples of the earliest ‘science-fiction’ with Conan Doyle’s the Lost World and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Jekyll and Hyde, on the other the contribution of Scottish authors to modern sci fi phenomenons – I particularly liked the Doctor Who Annual along with mini-statue of a Weeping Angel. A bright spot to retreat to on a cold rainy day. Treasures at the National Library of Scotland.
