THE CHECKLIST OF SCIENCE-FICTION AND SUPERNATURAL FICTION. Glen Rock, New Jersey: Firebell Books, . Octavo, pp. [1-6] i-xxii [xxiii-xxiv] 1-266 [267-271: ads] [272: blank], cloth. Second edition, revised and expanded. An extensive revision and enlargement of the 1948 checklist recording about 5600 titles. For this edition, Bleiler eliminated some 600 marginal works and added more than 1150 titles overlooked during the compilation of the 1948 edition. Bleiler re-examined each retained title for accuracy of bibliographical data and supplied first edition citations for most books. While a few juveniles, plays, poetry, and important early works of adult fiction are included, "the fundamental purpose of this bibliography is to provide first edition and subject matter information on adult, English-language fantastic fiction (including translations) from 1800 to 1948." An essential source of bibliographical information for books published during this period. Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 7-1. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 6-1. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 6-1.
