The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

Headwords from the First Edition

The first edition of The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction edited by Peter Nicholls (and others credited on the title page) appeared in 1979. This headwords list was constructed for comparison with the second edition headwords, to clarify just which 1979 entries were cut during the editing of the second edition (Clute & Nicholls, 1993) and should perhaps be reinstated in the third.

Entries which are primarily cross-references are marked >. Entries not carried over to the second edition are asterisked and shown in red.

All thanks for rekeying work to Catherine Crockett for B and C, and Mark Yon for D to R inclusive.
