Space Mythos: Science Fiction is a March 2020 OER designed to accompany other novels in an introductory science fiction course. The Lumen course shell is adapted from my American Literature 1 OER, which in turn was created from materials originally developed by the State Board of Community Technical Colleges (SBCTC) of Washington State. So this is a modified version of the Lumen American Literature I text. The original version of this book was released under a CC-BY license and is copyrighted by Lumen Learning.
