Addenda to the 2015 Revised Edition.


      If you are a first time visitor, you are encouraged to read the introduction to this Addenda before continuing further.  Otherwise, welcome back, and please stop by often.  Thanks to the assistance of Steve Lewis, who is maintaining this website, new information is constantly being added.  Your suggestions and comments are always welcome.  My email address can be found at the bottom of this page.   [AJH] 

     The 2015 Revised Edition of Crime Fiction IV is now available on CD-Rom.  The price remains the same as for previous editions, $49.95, and can be ordered from Bill Contento through the Locus Magazine website. Unfortunately this will be the last CD-Rom edition of Crime Fiction IV.  All future changes and additions will be listed only on this website through a continuing series of addendas.

     These addendas have been appearing on this website for the past 10 years, but since all of that information is now included in the 2015 Revised Edition, it will no longer be directly accessible from this starting page.  Below is Part 1 of these new addendas. Links will be added for Parts 2 and on as they are created.

      To SEARCH for a specific author, title or phrase anywhere in the various parts of this Addenda, there two ways to most effectively use Google: (1)  Do a normal search on Google but add crimefictioniv (or crimefictioniv.com) as one of the words sought.  If searching for an author’s name, it is suggested that you do not use quotes.  (2) Go to the Advanced Google search page and procede as directed, but be sure to include crimefictioniv.com in the box provided for the domain to be searched.

Most of these entries represent new information, and such entries contain additional information to provide some bibliographic context. Those entries below that are also included in the CD-ROM do not generally provide the context information. I thank John Herrington in England, as a great deal of the new information has been provided through his industrious and ingenious researches.
