Archive of Okrandian Canon

• Help

This is an attempt to collect all known Okrandian sources in one place. If you feel that anything is missing or inaccurate, please send us an email so that we may fix it.

This archive also contains the text of almost everyone of the sources (well, not exactly all of them, yet) and these may be searched using the form below (however keep in mind that the search engine is still in a beta-stage of development, and may contain oddities or even some ghewmey, should you spot any of those I would be delighted if you could tell me about it). For information on how to use the search engine, press »Help«.

I’m afraid you will find some weird stuff when searching through the archive using this engine. This is because the data files haven’t been fully organised into a single system/format yet. This is something I’m working on, but I though it better to offer the search facility to you now, than to wait for perfection (which might well take yet some time to achieve).

If you prefer, you may instead use the table below to browse through the sources in chronological order.

Titles given in italics are the names of a production (such as a movie or book) while titles surrounded by »angle quotation marks« are the names of articles etc. which are part of a larger publication. In most cases the text of the source in question is available; just follow the link »text«. In some cases some additional information is also available (such as where to buy the publication, or a description of its contents and/or form).
