     The editors of the **Encyclopedia of Popular Fiction, forthcoming in
2008 from Facts on File, are seeking contributors. We encourage prospective
authors to consult our website (see below) for available entries. ****
     Our encyclopedia is intended as a guide to bestselling contemporary
fiction, covering those works typically neglected by more "literary"
guides. **We include entries on authors whose work has reached, or
consistently come very close to, the annual "top 10" list of bestsellers
during roughly the past 25 years (1980 to the present), along with entries
on a representative selection of individual works which have reached "top
10" bestseller status in a particular year during this period. Some works
from the 1970s which have enjoyed continuing popularity since their initial
publication (such as Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Fear of
Flying) have also been included. Works typically categorized as "literary"
rather than "popular" have been excluded.
     C**ontributors to our encyclopedia will receive a byline in the
finished book, identifying them as the author of their entry. In certain
cases, those authors contributing multiple entries will receive a
complimentary copy of the encyclopedia upon its publication. **

P**lease consult our list
