Fellow readers of Dickens!

     In the pre-computer age, it may have been easier "by
indirections [to] find directions out."  But when an electronic
system is slightly modified and one's information about it is
not up to date, directions (on how to call up files, for example)
are not readily found out, if at all.

    This is to say, indirectly of course, that information on
files coming from me lately has been of little use.  Here are
needed corrections and up-dating.

    You may remember that DICKNS-L has stored
        a) useful bibliographies for four of the novels,
        b) bibliographies of periodical articles on Dickens for
            the years 1989 to 1993, inclusive,
        c) articles from DICKENS WORLD, a journal that publishes
            a selection of papers originally delivered at the
            Dickens Winter Conference at Riverside,
        d) monthly files of its own messages.

How to transfer them to your own computer:
