Science Fiction Quotations: From the Inner Mind to the Outer Limits. Edited by Gary Westfahl. Foreword by Arthur C. Clarke. New Haven, Connecticut: Yale University Press, 2005. 461 pp.
For more information about this book, you can visit the Yale University Press website which includes its Table of Contents, my introduction, and the author and title indexes.

I also wrote an article about the book for Locus Online which features lists of most frequently quoted works, most frequently quoted authors, and most popular topics. However, I limited the lists to the top fifteen in each category. Presented here for the first time are the complete versions of the lists I compiled, with all works that were quoted at least ten times, all authors who were quoted at least 15 times, and all topics that included at least 25 quotations.
