The Masback Science Fiction Collection is housed in Library 3rd floor Reading Room.
The Masback Science Fiction Collection contains paperback copies of science fiction, fantasy, and horror novels and short story collections. There are more than 3000 titles in the collection. All volumes are fully cataloged in COAST, the library's online catalog and are available for loan.
The collection, a memorial to Charles E. Masback, CSULB graduate, was established by his father Frederic J. Masback, Professor Emeritus of English, and his late wife Leona. Dr. Masback and his family and friends continue to support the collection's maintenance and growth.
Books are also added to the Masback Science Fiction Collection through gifts and other donations. Persons who wish to donate to this collection should contact Cathrine Lewis-Ida by voice mail at (562) 985-7828 or by email.
