The Lost Worlds of 2001

Cover of the 1972 Signet book
The Lost Worlds of 2001 is a 1972 book by Arthur C. Clarke, published by Signet as an accompaniment to the novel 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The book itself consists in part of behind-the-scenes notes from Clarke concerning scriptwriting (and rewriting), as well as production issues. The core of the book, however, is contained in excerpts from the proto-novel and an early screenplay that did not make it into the final version.

Alternative settings for launch preparation, the EVA scene where astronaut Frank Poole is lost, and varying dialogues concerning the HAL 9000 unit are all featured in the book. Also included is the original short story "The Sentinel" upon which 2001 is loosely based.
