Bibliographical Origins of the Avram Davidson Website

I first read a tattered paperback copy of The Enquiries of Doctor Eszterhazy in early 1993 and it opened doors for me in my own reading and writing. I started looking for more : when Avram Davidson died in May 1993, there were only two books in print, and so I started making a list. One thing led to another . . . In September 1995, my file of notes became the first version of the Avram Davidson Website ; this bibliographical core is found the Title Index ; the Website has continued to evolve.

The bibliographic material in this original file was published in expanded form and with extensive annotations) in the Bulletin of Bibliography, as a two-part article, A Preliminary Annotated Checklist of the Writings of Avram Davidson (Vol.53, no.1 & Vol.53, no.2, March & June 1996). Publisher : Greenwood Press, Inc., 88 Post Rd. W., Box 5007, Westport, CT 06881-5007.
