Space Odyssey: Stanley Kubrick, Arthur C. Clarke, and the Making of a Masterpiece

Interesting read so far. It's a very good timeline of the inception and production of the movie. Lot's of interesting background and insights into how Kubrick thinks. Here's something interesting I just read today: Kubrick had been so worried when NASA’s unmanned Mariner 4 spacecraft had flown by Ma...
