Garland Publishing, Inc., New York, is a US specialist publisher of a wide range of reference works and facsimile reprints, only some of which are related to sf. In 1975 G published the Garland Library of Science Fiction: 45 titles, selected by Lester DEL REY, issued in durableeditions. The series was criticized, partly for some idiosyncratic choices-unexceptional novels by Stanton A. COBLENTZ, H. Beam PIPER and George O. SMITH - but chiefly for choosing inferior versions of the booksto reproduce. Intended as an accompanying critical history by Del Rey was The World of Science Fiction: 1926-1976: The History of a Subculture(1979), which in the event appeared from DEL REY BOOKS first and then from G in 1980. Among G's very occasional books of genre interest since that time have been The Literature of Fantasy: A Comprehensive, Annotated Bibliography of Modern Fantasy Fiction (1979) by Roger C. SCHLOBIN,Science Fiction and Fantasy Series and Sequels: A Bibliography, Volume 1: Books (1986) by Tim Cottrill, Martin H. GREENBERG and Charles D. WAUGH, and Horror Literature: A Reader's Guide (1990) and Fantasy Literature: A Reader's Guide (1990), both ed Neil BARRON.
