Subject:        World Shakespeare Bibliography

On 1 October, I'll close the files for the 1998 annual World Shakespeare
Bibliography (WSB). So that I don't inadvertently omit a book, article,
review (or anything else) that deals wholly or substantially with
Shakespeare, I ask that all SHAKSPERians send me a list of their 1998
and 1999 publications so that I can be certain they will be included in
the annual print and the cumulative electronic WSB. (You can assume that
journals devoted solely to Shakespeare-e.g., Shakespeare Quarterly,
Shakespeare Studies, Shakespeare Survey, Hamlet Studies, Upstart
Crow-will be covered by the WSB.)

A more important plea: when you receive offprints of an article/review,
send along a copy right away. Or, when you direct a production, send
along a copy of the program (and reviews). Or, when the advance copy of
your book arrives, send an email with publication details so that I can
order a copy.  Doing so will ease substantially our bibliographical
labors and allow us more time to track down elusive publications. And,
doing so will insure that we don't overlook something because an issue
of a journal was misshelved or never received, etc. Having publications
and production information in a timely manner is going to be even more
essential next year, since we will be moving the WSB to the Web (and
thus allow for more current coverage than we can now offer).

Keeping me informed about your publications and productions will mean
that you won't be disappointed when you look for your name in the index
of the annual print version in Shakespeare Quarterly or when you look
for yourself in the author field of the electronic version.
