Anyone interested in writing an entry should contact me and include a brief
cv either in the e-mail message or as an attachment in RTF (Rich Text Fort).
Writers will have six months to complete the entry. Publication will occur
sometime in late 2002.

If you have any questions about the DLB, I’ll be happy to address them. You
can also consult the reference section of your library for hard copies or
online for electronic versions. Currently there are well over 200 volumes of
the DLB in print with many more in press. You may access the publisher's web
site at and then follow the links for the DLB. You will
find both a style guide for editors and authors as well as a sample entry.
Review the style guide carefully. Read the sample entry. Please be sure you
can work within the parameters of series. If you are still interested after
reviewing both the style guide and the sample entry, please contact me so
that we can agree upon an author and schedule.
