  2. The “Encyclopaedia Galactica” is referenced in all these.

    HHGTTG frequently contasts Galactics..Cosmos uses galactica

    All of these books have their story around a fictional inter-galactic space/universe.

  6. Is it the Encyclopedia Galactica…first used by Asmiov in his book of short stories Foundation…Carl Sagan in his 1980 book Cosmos, and his documentary series of the same name, referred to a text where hypothetical future civilizations could store all of their information and knowledge…probably on these lines….
    And Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series frequently contrasted the Galactica with the apparently more popular Guide…


  7. Vinod

    The connect is that these books tell the story or plot is woven with a single central character viz;
    Hari Seldon for the “Foundation Series”
    Carl Sagan himself for “Cosmos”
    Douglas Adams himself for “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”


  8. Sharath

    The common link is ‘Encyclopedia Galactica’
    Encyclopedia Galactica was first used by ASIMOV in FOUNDATION and later by both Carl Sagan and Douglas Adams in COSMOS and HITCHIKERS.. respectively.
    The Encyclopedia Galactica is an Encyclopedia of the inter-galactic civilizations comprising all the knowledge of the universe.

    Nice cover images. I guess the books have a reference chain (depending on who wrote first, of course). Or perhaps all mention Marvin.
