Amlit updates: Experimental Harriet Beecher Stowe bibliography

I’ll be updating the American lit site over the next few months, including the bibliographies. Since what I generally want to find is what’s new on an author, the Harriet Beecher Stowe bibliography is arranged by the newest material first.

It seems to me that since the combination of web and wordprocessing software provides multiple ways of changing and ordering texts, this would be a more efficient solution than putting the little “New” tag in as I have done in the past.

This is an experiment; the older bibliographies will be updated in the conventional way.

Let me know in the comments or by email ( if you have any thoughts/preferences.

Apprenticeship Writings of Frank Norris: Index of essays

If your research involves the work of Frank Norris, you’ve doubtless worked with Joseph R. McElrath and Douglas K. Burgess’s indispensable The Apprenticeship Writings of Frank Norris. It’s a superb volume, and it’s available free at Google Books.

The only thing lacking was an alphabetical list of essays. I made one several years ago and have posted it in .pdf form (typos and all) to the Frank Norris page at the Howells Society site and the American Authors site.
