I am currently seeking contributors for a new volume in the Dictionary of Literary Biography series, 20th Century American Gothic and Romance Writers, to be published by Bruccoli Clark Layman, Inc. in 2006.

The entries vary in length from 3,000-12,000 words, but each entry should combine a biographical/bibliographical narrative with a critical assessment of the author's works.

Please send a letter of interest and brief CV (no attachments please) via e-mail to haley.f.fishburn_at_ttu.edu or by post to:
Haley F. Fishburn

If you are unfamiliar with DLB format, see http://www.bcl-manly.com for a sample entry and style guidelines, or consult your library reference section for examples of previous volumes in the series.

Completed essays are due by December 30, 2004, and authors of published entries receive a small honorarium. A list of available authors (with essay lengths) follows.
