SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY AUTHORS: A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF FIRST PRINTINGS OF THEIR FICTION AND SELECTED NON-FICTION.

Boston, MA: G.K. Hall & Co., [1979]. Octavo, cloth. First edition. This copy signed by Currey on the title page. Invaluable reference tool. Quasi-descriptive bibliography compiled to meet the need for a single volume bibliography providing comprehensive and accurate checklists of all book fiction by major authors identified with the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres from the late nineteenth-century through the 1970s. This work, loosely modeled on Merle Johnson's classic American First Editions, provides the first comprehensive listing of book fiction by 215 authors highly regarded for their writings in the science fiction, fantasy and horror fields. The bibliography is intended for those who wish to identify first and significant later printings and editions of books by these authors. The checklists are designed to provide listings of all book fiction for each author through 1977 in a compact, but comprehensive and coherent format and to provide descriptions that will enable the reader to identify first and other significant printings and editions. To aid researchers and collectors, in addition to describing the first printing, the hardcover printing of any book preceded by a paperback printing (or printings) is described Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 7-7. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 6-2. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 6-2. Burgess, Reference Guide to Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror 210. Upper front corner bumped, spine ends rubbed, a nearly fine copy. No dust jacket as issued. (26426). Item #26426
