Abstract/Summary This is an extract from The Bibliography of Australian Literature, F-J, (BAL) edited by John Arnold and John Hay. The Bibliography of Australian Literature F-J is the second of four planned volumes which aim to record details of all separately published creative literature by Australian writers from the late 18th century to the early 21st century. Volume one of BAL covering A-E authors was published in 2001. The entries are organised alphabetically by author name and provide brief biographical details - dates and places of birth and death, and any names the author is known by. Core genres covered in BAL are poetry, fiction, drama and children's writing. BAL has no canon, aiming to include all works by Australian authors regardless of perceived or accepted literary merit - the self-published book of verse is as relevant as prize-winning novels of internationally renowned Australian writers. Prolific writers of romance, science fiction and fantasy, crime novels and westerns - all generally categorised as pulp fiction - whose works are often excluded from mainstream bibliographies are included in BAL F-J. For each work in a core genre, details of the first edition and, where applicable, the first Australian, UK, US, Canadian and New Zealand editions are listed, as well as significant new or revised editions and translations. To ensure accuracy and to avoid the repetition of errors in earlier bibliographies and catalogues, we have endeavoured to physically examine all first editions, except pulp fiction. Awards won and additional information pertinent to an individual title or author is also included. Where an author has also published in non-fiction fields, titles are selectively listed under 'Other Works Include'. These works are not sighted, nor listed comprehensively. The indexes of titles and pseudonyms/variant writing names enhances the extensive alphabetical author listing and makes The Bibliography of Australian Literature an essential reference work for the reading, study and collecting of Australian literature. The Bibliography of Australian Literature is now compiled in and derived from AustLit: The Resource for Australian Literature (, a unique collaboration between eight Australian universities and the National Library of Australia, which is exploring and detailing Australia's literary heritage. BAL is compiled by the AustLit team. Two further volumes of BAL will be published by 2008. AustLit and BAL are led by The University of Queensland.
