The previous edition of this massive reference work was praised by everyone who reviewed it and it was featured on Booklist'slist of the Best Books of the 1980s. Now expanded and updated through 1990, this unparalleled work has two new features.

The second new feature in this completely revised edition is a bibliographical listing of individual short stories from more than 4,000 story collections. The only comprehensive work in the field, this volume covers books published in English the world over from Australia to Singapore to Canada. It provides the author, title, U.S., and British publisher and date, for all volumes (except anthologies) intended for adults or featuring an adult protagonist, organized alphabetically by author. A special section features 4,500 series characters and the stories in which they appear; another identifies more than 340 settings and offers extensive lists of books featuring those settings. Indexes are provided to titles, settings, series characters, movies, movie directors, and screenwriters.
