  1. It consists of cheratps that were originally written for the book, but were not used. Also included are occasional musings by Clarke on the making of the book, and behind-the-scenes glimpses at the making of the movie. He kept a journal during the entire 4-year process of the making of the works, and some of them are excerpted here. It’s interesting to see some of the ideas that were thought up, but abandoned. For instance, what became HAL was originally a walking robot; the initial Dawn of Man scenes involved an actual alien, and there are numerous alternate endings (all of them every bit as ornate as the one we’re all familar with.) This is sort of the literary equivalent of the movie industry’s The Making of Kubrick’s 2001 (which I also reccommend.) A highly worthy buy for the fan.

  2. Perhaps you haven’t used any terrible books, or peprhas you are too generous: A book can be useful but still cost ten times the time and effort to glean the same value of another book. Oct 15 ’10 at 8:17
