Book description
CONTENTS:  
NB:When I know that a story is in a series, I've noted that in brackets. I have created separate records for "stand-alone" titles so that they can be entered into the series. If I know that it has already been collected into a one-author anthology that is in the series, I don't create a separate record. I am gradually creating links to the individual records.
