The Dalek Pocketbook and Space Travellers Guide, published in 1965, was an early Doctor Who spin-off book written by Terry Nation and featuring his creations, the Daleks. The book was written in two parts: the first half was an in-universe guide to the Daleks, while the second half was a non-fiction section about astronomy. Many of the informational features about Daleks were reprinted from The Dalek Book.
