About

Overview

In response to the escalating need for up-to-date information on writers, Contemporary Authors New Revision Series brings researchers the most recent data on the world's most popular authors. These exciting and unique author profiles are essential to your holdings because sketches are revised and up to date and replace the original Contemporary Authors entries.

Features and Benefits

  • All entries in this volume are updated versions of sketches that first appeared in the Contemporary Authors series (See Table of Contents for listing).
  • A softcover cumulative index published twice per year (included in subscription) contains references to all entries in the series as well as in other Gale literature reference works.

What's New

  • Sketches typically include personal information, contact information, career history, writings, adaptations, biographical and critical sources, and informative essays about authors' lives and works.
