BIBLIOGRAPHY

This isn’t a complete listing of my output.  At this stage I’m indexing only a selection of the short stories I’ve had published, and I’ve not included various non-fiction books and reference works I’ve contributed to.  Nor is there a listing of my journalism, or material published under pseudonyms.  I hope to add those sections at a later date.  My books are listed with the latest first.
