Subject: Bibliography Of Archaeology-Related Novels

[ AzTeC / SWA SASIG ] :

From: Allen Dart

Tucson's Old Pueblo Archaeology Center, a nonprofit
educational and research corporation, is compiling
a bibliography of archaeology-related novels,
including novels about archaeologists, and novels
about prehistoric cultures (such as Adolph
Bandelier's "The Delight Makers"). If you know of
any such materials, we would appreciate you
sending us as much of the following information as
you can for each entry, via e-mail or U.S. mail
(we're willing to do some research to tie down
loose ends if you don't know all the details):

- full title
- author's (or authors') full name(s)
- publisher and place of publication
- copyright date
- year of publication
- ISBN no.
- price
- a one- or two-sentence summary of the story

If you provide the story summary, please also
include your written (or e-mailed) permission to
reproduce your summary in any listings of
archaeological novels that we provide to the
public either by direct distribution or in
publications. All contributors of titles that we
don't already know about, and of summaries that
we include in our listings, will be acknowledged
in any lists or publications of the bibliography
that we produce.

Many thanks,

Allen Dart

I have already compiled such a list and you can
find it at Archaeology in Fiction.

It is annotated and in the process of being
updated. I covered the last hundred years or
so of fiction, and plan to cover a great deal
more shortly.
