Greetings! Selected Readings is compiled and edited by Kevin Berland (C18-L's Dogsbody and Factotum), with the generous assistance of the Volunteer Fire Brigade, viz., Amy Haley, Jack Lynch, P. Singletree, Mark G.Spencer, Scarlett Townsend, Simon Varey, and A.J. Wright, not to mention the ever-present company of the Man in the Funny Hat, the Operator of the Moderately Elegant Machines, and the Secret Admirer. Welcome to Mr. Geoffrey Fuzzyblazer, and, as always, a tip of the Hat to the Chair of the Irony Board.

What kinds of things make it into this bibliography? Good question! Please see the explanations and caveats on the Selected Readings Modus Operandi Page. All links given in this issue were operational on date this issue was published; if you're visiting in the future (relatively speaking) we cannot ensure the links will still be up. Contributions of new bibliographical materials are always welcome - see the C18-L list of journals we'd like to have reviewed; we would also be grateful for listings of new monographs and contents of essay collections. Individuals, presses and journal editors are welcome to send tables of contents via email.
