Television Series

by Alan Morton

1st ed 1997 out of print
2nd edition delayed indefinitely

Years in the making, The Complete Directory to Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Television Series - A Comprehensive Guide to the First 50 Years 1946 to 1996, gives episode guides to over 360 TV series in the science fiction genre from the very first (Lights Out in 1946) all the way to the end of the 1995-1996 television season, covering a total of 15,000 episodes in all! Not only extremely popular series such as Doctor Who, Babylon 5 and Bewitched are covered, but also obscure series such as Out There, Snakes & Ladders and R3.

At 982 pages in length the book attempts to include all English language genre series from: the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia/New Zealand. There is an overview of each series, including a list of all the series regulars, and then for each individual episode is given the title, plot synopsis, guest cast, original broadcast date, writer and director, in a format similar to that used by epguides.com. A complete list follows, with a few of the show names linked to sample entries from the book.

The following series which were included in the first edition have had additional episodes broadcast since publication of the first edition. The new episodes have been added to the second edition.

/ Are You Afraid of the Dark? / Babylon 5 / Bugs / Goodnight Sweetheart / Goosebumps / Hercules the Legendary Journeys / Highlander / Lois and Clark the New Adventures of Superman / Masked Rider / Mission Top Secret / Ocean Girl / The Outer Limits (1995) / Poltergeist the Legacy / Power Rangers Zeo / Power Rangers Turbo / Power Rangers in Outer Space / Red Dwarf / The Secret World of Alex Mack / The Sentinel / Sliders / Space Cases / Star Trek Deep Space Nine / Star Trek Voyager / 3rd Rock from the Sun / Touched by an Angel / Viper / The X-Files / Xena Warrior Princess

The following are older series which were not included in the first edition of the book but are in the second. Most are somewhat obscure foreign programmes unknown to the author when the first edition was compiled. The remainder are borderline genre series whose inclusion was requested by readers of the first edition, plus a couple of old American series which were produced about 40 years ago but never broadcast.

Chocky / A Ghost Story for Christmas / The Gnomes of Dulwich / Highcliffe Manor / Interpretaris / Jamie / The Lost Islands / Luna / The Man and the Challenge / The Magic Boomerang / Miraculous Mellops / Pardon My Genie / Photon / Rentaghost / Round the Twist / The Silver Swan / Steam Video Company / The Stranger / Supergran / 13 Demon Street / Thriller (UK 1973) / Turn Out the Lights / Vega 4 / The Veil

In addition to the new programmes and previously unchronicled ones listed above, a fair number of the older series covered in the book have had additional information added to their entries. This involved filling in some of the inevitable "holes" one encounters, mostly on older series, and gathering information on secondary guest stars for episodes which were not previously available to the author for viewing.
