In Clarke's own words, an overview of the writing of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Clarke talks about the writing process and challenges, and about working with Stanley Kubrick. Also included are several additional scenes and characters, as well as some altenate endings.
The paperback edition contains images taken from the film, pictures of characters including the voice actors who played HAL and the NASA ground controller, and scenes from the filming. Look closely: Dr. Strangelove may make an appearance.
2001 is a seminal film for the science fiction genre and others. Lost Worlds gives a great insight into how it all came about.
