The Silver Stallion

Changes and Additions to James Hall's Bibliography

As we have said before, this website and our on-line bibliographies wouldn't exist without James Hall and his 1974 James Branch Cabell: A Complete Bibliography. Part of our mission is to help keep Hall's work current by adding to it as new editions are published, and by additions and corrections to Hall's efforts when we find them. The list below summarizes the changes and additions that The Silver Stallion has made to A Complete Biliography.
