About the Encyclopedia Galactica

The Good Doctor I'm an Asimov fanatic

The first Asimovian book I read was I, Robot.  I was introduced to it by a friend when I was thirteen which is now, gee, a quarter of a century ago.   I still have that original book in my collection.  (I'll give it him back one day).   Since then I've read every Asimov novel and short story - and I read them over and over and over and ...

The Galactic novels are my favourite.

For many years now I've wanted to do a chronology of the Asimovian Galaxy. 

There are chronologies on the web already but I wanted a little more detail than these provided so, 1n 1997, I embarked on my own.

(Un)fortunately it just grew and grew and I've decided to inflict the rest of the world with it.

Starship and Sun
I, Robot The Encyclopedia is a massive undertaking.   Even though, sadly, Asimov was taken from us before he completed it.
By it's very nature, the Encyclopedia Galactica is a developing work.  If you would like to be informed of updates consider joining the updates mailing list.
Isaac Asimov - for thinking the whole thing up in the first place.
Ann Kelly - for filling in the gaps in my collection.
Ed Seiler - For his monumental efforts in proof-reading the Encyclopedia.
Glebe Farm Public Library - for fulfilling my early insatiable appetite for all things Asimov.
