Fellow Dickensians!

        Here, in a somewhat modified form, is the bibliography
for _The Mystery of Edwin Drood_ that has been distributed to
participants in this summer's Dickens Universe meeting at UC
Santa Cruz.  It is, as previously explained, not exhaustive but
rather is meant to serve as a checklist for people about to study
the novel intensively.  The list has been checked and updated, but
there are surely errors as well as omissions.  John Jordan, who
supervised the making of the list, and I (who have checked it
out) would be glad to learn of any corrections and additions that
subscribers to DICKNS-L would like to point out.  We will pass
them along.  Meanwhile we hope you find it useful.  Cheers!
