Re: dating Eberhart stories
Rick Cypert sent me a 7-page "Select Bibliography of Short Stories and
Serialized Novels by Mignon Good Eberhart," listing periodical
appearances (where known) and book editions -- though for some reason
it doesn't crosslist with CASES OF SUSAN DARE. I can post it to this
main GAD site -- ahven't had time to figure out the WIKI yet.
