|Notes:||It was the best-seller encyclopedia before The Guide.|
The Encyclopedia Galactica is a respectable, but on the whole insignificant guide and sells rather less than the Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It is also more expensive and older than the Guide. It has also been criticised in some quarters for the lack of friendly advice on the cover, à la H2G2.
The Encyclopedia Galactica is mentioned in:
- The Douglas Adams book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
- The first episode of the The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy television series.
Behind the scenesEdit
A book called Encyclopedia Galactica first appeared in Isaac Asimov’s short story Foundation.
