The Traveller Bibliography

Watermarked PDF

Massively expanded from the previous edition, this (the 3rd edition) contains nearly 2,000 items and every era of Traveller, alternate universes and even Cepheus Engine. Detailing books, supplements, fiction, miniatures and memorabilia from the first 40 years of Traveller, this bibliography contains every item known to the grand librarian of Traveller, Timothy Collinson.

It has four indexes (author, date, publisher & title) and in the future we hope to bring you even more detailed subject indexes (although this PDF is, of course, fully searchable). Hopefully it will help fans know what’s out there (albeit some items are long out of print), which books connect with others, and where to find those obscure references to ships, worlds or adventures.

Included are:

  • Title
  • Author, Publisher and Date
  • Size (pages), format and content type (e.g. maps, tables, diagrams, illustrations, glossary, etc.)
  • A bulleted list of the main contents (separate components, as well as what's in the main publication, including rules, ships, main characters, etc.)
  • A text description of the item, often personalised by Timothy Collinson

We hope this will be a valuable addition to every Traveller's bookshelf, whether you want to find the origin of an obscure Traveller text, learn what freebie was distributed at the UK TravCon convention in 2010, or search for which book has the details of a particular world or subsector.

Happy Travelling!

This is amazing. Thanks so much for all of the effort that went into designing, type-setting, and researching for this volume. The foundation to correct a lot of misconceptions about Traveller's history

In case the follow has not yet been noted: (1). The information on Deluxe Traveller is at variance with what is available on Drivethru. Instead of the Starter booklet are the three little black books, the 1981 second edition. Also, (2). the two editions of Traveller, 1977 and 1981, are not noted. (3). The substantive differences between the two editions, as well as The Traveller Book, are discussed in CCSS4 Lost Rules of Traveller.

Greetings from the chuffed small publisher.

So, on page 91 under H200-H201 HERALD CLASS STARSHIPS it should be Thornwood-Daarnulud LLC as that is the registered name. No real biggie, but on page 92 H901 TRAVELLER5 CHARACTER RECORD, the actual designer of that particular character sheet is Bill Barbre.

Otherwise, wow! This is hella complete book and neat, I dig the layout and entry style. Nice work.

Corrections noted. Although I should say I don't ordinarily include GmBH, Inc and the like in company names. But as you bothered to care... :-) Thank you.

Great, now I feel like a butt-munch. :( But on the other hand, awesome and thanks. It is quite an awesome piece of work and now that Don's gone we do need another Chief Archivist. :D

Any chance of making this POD?

Hi Thomas - we've normally left people to print their own copies of our products, but we appreciate this is a bit thicker than our usual "101" product series, so I'll see if I can get the PDFs in the right format for doing POD; check back at the end of January and hopefully I'll have it done by then.

I have an earlier draft from TravCon and it is a thing of dedicated beauty and comprehensiveness. If you are a Traveller completist who wants to know both if they have everything, and then where to find anything in their collection, this is their ultimate index.

Thank you Steve - needless to say, Timothy has ploughed an enormous amount of time into this (as well as acquiring a huge range of the products) and appreciates your feedback.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
