FYI -- There's a new James Branch Cabell website at
Aha - I like your tags (I'm much too lazy to do that)
But what about the "333" titles and the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award winners?

Nice favorites too - nice work! I enjoyed a dip into your library

You sure will be busy. There are many many books mentioned in this book that are seemingly mentioned nowhere else. Of course, you still won't be done with supernatural fiction even when you get through this. I am surprised at how often supernatural fiction turns up that isn't mentioned in any of the Bleiler references. Plus the timeframe covered is limited. Even so, the achievement this book represents staggers me. I don't know that I've ever seen a copy obtainable for less than three figures, so don't be glum. It is well worth it.
Cool, you nabbed the Bleiler Guide! Where and how?
