This wiki, Clockworks 2: The Supplement, is a continuation of Clockworks: A Multimedia Bibliography of Works Useful for the Study of the Human/Machine Interface in SF, compiled by Richard D. Erlich and Thomas P. Dunn et al., Greenwood Press, 1993. When Greenwood Press can no longer make money off of Clockworks (1), they will release the rights to Dunn and Erlich, and Erlich will have Clockworks 1 put on line. Until then, users who want complete lists will have to consult Clockworks 1 in a library, or purchase a copy from Greenwood:

For technical information of a biblio-, filmo-, video-, and discographic nature, see the Introduction.

For advice and frequently asked questions (FAQs) on how to use the wiki, see the section How to Use This Wiki.

Abbreviations in our annotations use initials for the names of authors and the titles of the works cited in that entry: e.g., Frederik Pohl's story "The Midas Plague" would be FP's "TMP"; Frederik Pohl's Man Plus would be FP's MP. We use only initials for first names of most other authors mentioned in annotations.

Anthologies and Collections listed in the second section of Clockworks 1 and 2 are, ordinarily, alphabetized in that section by titles and authors respectively. (If told to see an anthology under Anthologies and Collections, look for it first by title; if told to see a collection, look for it first by author's name.)

Authors and works referred to frequently in our annotations by last name only (e.g. Cox and Libby, Johnson, Naha, Orth, Sobchack, Warrick, Wolfe) are cited in the first section of the Clockworks 1 List, Reference Works.

Episodes of TV shows are listed under Drama.

The format, with only minor exceptions, follows the Modern Language Association format for lists of works cited, most conveniently promulgated in Joseph Gibaldi and Walter S. Achtert, MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (New York: MLA, 1988), section 4. Quotation marks around titles indicate a short story, poem, song, or other short work. Underlined or italicized titles indicate books, films, paintings. Film listings are by title, with other information following.
