I am currently seeking contributors for a new volume in the Dictionary of Literary Biography series, 20th Century British Gothic and Romance Writers, to be published by Bruccoli Clark Layman, Inc. in 2007.

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 <mailto:haley.f.fishburn_at_ttu.edu> or by post to:

In the letter of interest, please provide full mailing address and indicate preferred entry/ies. Assignment of entries will begin on June 15, 2004.
