From Barbarella to Blade Runner, from Solaris to Star Wars, and from 1984 to 2001, Sci-Fi Chronicles seeks out the greatest galactic creations. With an arresting blend of incisive text, infographic timelines, and stunning photographs, the book illustrates how world-conquering works emerged and evolved. Each chronologically-arranged entry charts the development of a much-loved sci-fi title - from book to movie to television series, for example. Other key media - comics, graphic novels, video games, manga - are included where appropriate. Entries are enticingly embellished with film and television stills, book and comic covers, and other archive material. Expert text gives an entertaining overview, and color-coded timelines provide an at-a-glance guide to key publication, release, and broadcast dates. Larger franchises - such as Doctor Who and The War of the Worlds - feature a lavish spread of photographs, illustrating how they have evolved from black-and-white beginnings to big-budget blockbusters. And seminal sagas like Star Wars and Star Trek enjoy not only a “real world” timeline of film releases and TV broadcasts, but also a fascinating spread detailing how each work fits into the series’ fictional universe. Sci-Fi Chronicles is perfect for dipping into, while its memory-jogging mentions and illustrations make it impossible to put down. It will delight long-standing sci-fi aficionados yet also entrance a younger generation, with its scope extending from vintage volumes to amazing anime.
