NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2012—After many months of anticipation, Hasslein Books today announced the release of its latest science fiction encyclopedia from author Rich Handley—and it's heavy, Doc.
A Matter of Time: The Unauthorized Back to the Future Lexicon is now available at Amazon.com, CreateSpace.com and BTTF.com (the official Back to the Future Web site), as well as via retail store special-orders and wholesale. With the Christmas shopping season upon us, the time is right to take your favorite sci-fi fan's gift list back to the future.
When it comes to science fiction comedies, Back to the Future is at the top of the list. Together, the movie and its sequels comprise one of the most successful and beloved trilogies of all time. Starring Christopher Lloyd, Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Tom Wilson, Crispin Glover and others, the movies remain as exciting now as they were in theaters—but if you've only seen the films, then you've missed a lot.
Thankfully, A Matter of Time: The Back to the Future Lexicon brings you every character, place and thing from the BTTF franchise, not only from the film trilogy, but also from the animated series, video games, novels, scripts, theme-park ride, card game and more. Every McFly, Brown, Tannen, Strickland, Clayton and Parker... every Hill Valley business... every one of Doc Brown's eccentric inventions... A Matter of Time covers it all. This book, written by the author of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes: The Definitive Chronology and Lexicon of the Planet of the Apes: The Comprehensive Encyclopedia, contains:
• Nearly 3,000 alphabetical entries detailing every character, device, location and more
• A foreword by noted Back to the Future expert Stephen Clark, of BTTF.com
• Stunning exclusive artwork by artist Pat Carbajal
• An episode guide to the expansive Back to the Future universe, beyond just the films
• A list of the characters' known descendants, ancestors and aliases
• A breakdown of Doc Brown's hundreds of wacky inventions
• And an extensive gallery featuring 160 home-video, book and video game covers
Great Scott, not even Grays Sports Almanac is this complete! Beautifully designed by Paul C. Giachetti—and intended for both casual viewers and those who know Jennifer Parker's middle name—A Matter of Time is your complete guide to Hill Valley past, present and future. So make like a tree... and place your order today!
