Unavailable since 1980, this edition is updated to include works published in the last ten years and is divided into five parts, each focusing on a major subgrouping of the genre. It encompasses novels, short stories, plays, collections, anthologies, magazines, studies and histories of the genre, and lives of writers. It contains some 5,000 entries and a detailed index. But the chief delight is the writing: subjective, witty, idiosyncratic, always engaging. A model of what bibliography should be (and seldom is).
