Call for Contributions: Comics Through Time

Contributors are needed for an upcoming 4-volume historical encyclopedia of comics, to be entitled COMICS THROUGH TIME and to be published by Greenwood Press. Most entries have already been assigned to contributors, but numerous entries remain unassigned. A full list of the entries, including word lengths and due dates, can be found at https://spreadsheets1.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AnTUvZkxh2zZdGdyQWtFWThSd1hnX2tNaW4tLTlkMkE&hl=en_US#gid=0. 

Entries that do not include an author name have yet to be assigned.

A fuller description of this project can be found at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ewtr_YFt--VAtqnjEtvkdoQZNA2xRdfu-b27n2AbDDs/edit?hl=en_US.

Please contact the editor, M. Keith Booker, if you are interested in contributing entries to this project. Include a c.v. or other summary of your qualifications with your inquiry. All of those who contribute five or more entries will receive a free copy of the encyclopedia, likely to sell for hundreds of dollars. All contributors will receive free access to the electronic version of the encyclopedia.
