Donald H. Tuck, 1922-2010

Australian bibliographer Donald H. Tuck, 89, died October 11, 2010 in Melbourne.

Tuck was born in Launceston, Tasmania on December 3, 1922. His comprehensive and exhaustive bibliographic work began with A Handbook of Science Fiction and Fantasy (1954; expanded and revised in 1959); the second edition received a Worldcon special award in 1962. His most significant work was The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction and Fantasy through 1968: A Bibliographic Survey of the Fields of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Weird Fiction through 1968 in three volumes, published in 1974, 1978, and 1983. The third volume won a Hugo Award, and the work remains valuable to SF scholars and historians.

See Tuck’s SF Encyclopedia entry for more details.
