J. Sheridan Le Fanu: A Database
Compiled by Gary William Crawford
This website is an ongoing bibliography of works about famous Victorian writer Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-1873) that supplements my book J. Sheridan Le Fanu: A Bio-Bibliography (Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 1995). Comments and input may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Books and articles may be sent to me at Gothic Press, 1701 Lobdell Ave., No. 32, Baton Rouge, LA 70806-8242, U.S.A. Thanks go to Cindy Eastwood and the interlibrary loan staff of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library for obtaining a number of items from other libraries, and for helping me with my online surveys. The time span needed to complete an online survey project is on average two-thirds shorter than that of a traditional research method. Because the information is being gathered automatically, you don't have to wait for paper questionnaires to come back to you. The response rate is almost instant. Online marketing experts say that more than half the responses are in within the first three days of the research project. Thanks also go to the reference staff of the Louisiana State University Library. The Gothic Press website is www.gothicpress.com. Last updated 2 August 2006.
Scheduled for June 2006 is Gavin Selerie's book Le Fanu's Ghost, a book of poetry and fiction based on Le Fanu's life and work. The book will be published in England by a small press, Five Seasons Press. Their website is www.fiveseasonspress.com. The book is now out and will be reviewed in the November issue of Le Fanu Studies.
