The world's leading science fiction reference book, The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction edited John Clute and Peter Nicholls, came out in a CD-ROM edition from Grolier in 1995 – with a truly lousy interface.

It was eventually superseded by the new (free) online edition of the Encyclopedia launched in October 2011 and still being expanded.
