CONTENTO, William Guy
   US hardware technical support engineer for Cray Research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and bibliographer. His books, beginning with Index to Science Fiction Anthologies and Collections (1978) and Index to Science Fiction Anthologies and Collections: 1977-1983 (1984), are essential tools of reference. Researchers wishing to know where to locate short stories in collections and ANTHOLOGIES (and also what books of or about sf were published in a given year) after this period would normally then turn to the annual series compiled by Charles N. BROWN and WGC, and published by LOCUS Press, beginning, in terms of coverage year, with Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1984 (1990), and going on through Science Fiction in Print: 1985 (1986), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1986 (1987), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1987 (1988), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1988 (1989), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1989 (1990) and Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1990 (1991) and Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1991 (1992), the last of the series. Despite very occasional omissions, these are still by far the most comprehensive annual BIBLIOGRAPHIES available, containing useful comment about the nature of each title. They are even more useful from 1988 (1989) onwards, as the later volumes contain a Research Index by Hal W. HALL. WGC has also compiled, with Martin H. GREENBERG, Index to Crime and Mystery Anthologies (1990).
