Back to the Future is one of the most successful and beloved film trilogies of all time. Starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, Tom Wilson and others, the movies have stood the test of time, remaining as entertaining, hilarious and exciting now as they were when theatrically released between 1985 and 1990. But if you've only watched the films, you've only seen part of the story. A Matter of Time: The Back to the Future Lexicon brings fans the entire franchise: every character, place and object ever featured in the BTTF mythos, from not only the films, but also the screenplays, cartoons, novels, video games, card game, amusement-park ride, music videos and more.
Every McFly, Brown, Tannen, Parker, Clayton and Strickland... every eccentric invention... every Hill Valley business--past, present and future... A Matter of Time covers it all. This staggeringly complete (and unofficial) encyclopedia, written by Rich Handley, the author of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes: The Definitive Unauthorized Chronology and Lexicon of the Planet of the Apes: The Comprehensive Unauthorized Encyclopedia, contains:
