All Things Twain: An Encyclopedia of Mark Twain’s World, ABC-CLIO / Greenwood.
A reference work illuminating the historical, social, political, and cultural context of the 19th- and early 20th-centuries, with a special focus on those aspects that are pertinent to understanding the works and life of Mark Twain. The manuscript is in process, and I have openings for contributors. Experience with using primary historical and literary sources is a must, and a strong interest in Twain is welcome. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include a statement of your specific interests and experience, and attach a CV or resume.
