    1. "It's alive, it's alive!"That Dr. Frankenstein quotation and thousands of other well-known quotations from the world of sci-fi and fantasy are included in this fun read. Also included are more formalized rules, such as Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics, and Star Trek's Prime Directive.The quotes are from books, movies, and TV series. Arranged conveniently by topic from Actions to Work, this is a fun read to scan for topics of interest. Also has indices by author and title of work.

    2. Hard to say I 'read' this book of quotations when it wasn't thoroughly, front-to-back. Quotes grouped by theme. Wish I had a hard copy of this for reference.
