Space Odyssey Reading Order

What’s on the Space Odyssey Reading Order?

The Space Odyssey reading order takes the series written by Arthur C. Clarke and places each of the books in chronological order. This includes the film that was produced at the same time as the book. This timeline does not include the comics that were produced shortly after the release of the film.

This timeline also includes the Time Odyssey series which were described by Clarke as being “neither a sequel nor a prequel.” Instead the series is more of a spiritual successor to the original series, taking place in a parallel universe of sorts. Because of their thematic relationship, the two series are both included on this list.
