'Outposts of Wonder' - Australian science fiction statistics

These tables provide an overview of the statistics for Australian SF and related speculative fiction for the past five decades, emphasising professionally published fiction in print and online, and including statistics for Australia's Ditmar Awards. It does not include figures for SF in film, television, comics, games, etc.

Please note that some of this data differs slightly from the statistics quoted in my history of Australian Science Fiction, OUTPOST OF WONDER. This is because of new data being added, roundings and interpretations being modified to be more consistent, and typos being corrected since the manuscript was finalised. If any errors have survived my best efforts to nail them down, please accept my apologies. Note also that after 2008, the figures used are from the eligibility statistics for the year before, but the award statistics are for that year. This is to try to keep the statistics and dates consistent with the published databases.
