Friends of the Archives are personalities who do us the great honor of supporting our missions in favor of science-fiction. They come from different backgrounds. Cinema, television, literature, comics, arts, sciences, press, industry, etc… What they have in common: their contribution to science-fiction or their passion for the genre. Robert Watts was the first Friend of the Archives and he is also ScienceFictionArchives.com Honorary President. We will introduce new Friends of the Archives here as they join us.
