(1941-)
   US bibliographer, Special Formats Librarian at Texas A \& M University Library. His useful series of BIBLIOGRAPHIES began with SFBRI: Science Fiction Book Review Index, 1970 (1971 chap), and volumes relating to each year have been published in each succeeding year up to Vol 15, 1984 (1985 chap); since then, each volume now titled Science Fiction andFantasy Book Review Index, there have been Vol 16, 1985 (1988 chap), Vol 17, 1986 (1988 chap) and Vol 18, 1987 1990 chap). Three retrospective books collecting and revising these are Science Fiction Book Review Index 1923-1973 (1975), Science Fiction Book Review Index 1974-1979 (1981) andScience Fiction and Fantasy Book Review Index 1980-1984 (1985), the last with Geraldine L. Hutchins. All are most useful to the researcher: comprehensive and accurate, they contain also a great deal of data about sf magazine publication. On this latter subject HWH has published A Checklist of Science Fiction Magazines (1972 chap) and The Science FictionMagazines: A Bibliographical Checklist of Titles and Issues through 1982 (1983 chap).A second series of reference works began with Science Fiction Research Index, Vol 1 (1979 chap) and Vol 2 (1982 chap), running to date to Vol 7 (1987) and Vol 8 (1990 chap). A collection of the first 6 vols plus additions is the monumental Science Fiction and Fantasy Reference Index, 1878-1985: An International Author and Subject Index to History andCriticism (2 vols 1987), to which vols 7 and 8, which bring the story up to 1987, are the initial supplements. Subsequent supplements are included in the annual bibliographies ed Charles N. BROWN and William G. CONTENTO: Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1988 (1989), 1989 (1990), 1990 (1991)and 1991 (1992). There are, of course, omissions - it is not possible to examine the review pages of every newspaper in the world - but these works are the best available for determining the location of reviews and articles on anything from CYBERPUNK through NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD to TOLKIEN.The continually expanding computer database in which HWH hasstored all this material also contains information on the location of important sf/fantasy book and magazine COLLECTIONS, and HWH has published various articles on this subject - one written with Neil BARRON in Anatomy of Wonder: A Critical Guide to Science Fiction, Third Edition (1987) ed Barron - and one book, Science/Fiction Collections: Fantasy, Supernatural\& Weird Tales (1983).HWH is on the editorial board of EXTRAPOLATION.
