The Silver Stallion: The James Branch Cabell Website

An Illustrated Bibliography of Works by and about James Branch Cabell
by John Thorne & Bill Lloyd

Our aim at The Silver Stallion is to provide an on-line meeting place for scholars, fans and collectors of the work of James Branch Cabell (1879-1958).  Cabell has been many things to many people: a crafter of magazine stories, a purveyor of ribald fantasies, a polemical belle-lettrist, a historical novelist, and a derided has-been; a constructor of dream-narratives, a revisionist historian, a memoirist; and a collector's dream -- and after his death a Southern allegorist, an also-ran Tolkien, and a literary suicide. He was brilliant and infuriating, versatile and repetitive, courtly and waspish,  eloquent and grandiloquent.

On our website you'll find reflections of all these aspects of Cabell -- and more...  We offer reviews and essays, notes and queries; and a discussion group (Cabell's sources? Cabell's anagrams? Cabell's heirs? -- lets talk!) We've compiled a list of dozens of links to other Cabell and Cabell-related material on the internet.  We have pictures and biographical material. We plan to reprint choice pieces from the archives of the classic Cabell journals "Kalki" and "The Cabellian." And the crown jewels of The Silver Stallion are our series of Cabell bibliographies (still under construction, as, at the moment, is the whole site), profusely illustrated with hundreds of images, both rare and common, with comments on each book, including collecting 'points'.  Which Cabell do you favor? He's in here somewhere...

Like the Star Wars movies, or the Chronicles of Narnia, the proper order of Cabell's work is a matter of dispute. Read more about Cabell's bibliographers and their ordering systems on either the Brewer order page or Chronological order page.

The Silver Stallion is a collaborative effort that depends heavily on the comments and contributions of our readers. We want and need your input. If you have information, photographs, or other data that you'd like to share, or if you have comments, questions or suggestions, please contact us at Webmaster.
