This is the single most complete and useful source for locating secondary materials pertaining to Shirley Jackson and her work. It includes both reviews from the time of publication and critical works. The annotations and introduction contribute to Jackson scholarship by arguing that some of her fiction has been misread and mislabeled due to the perceived meaning of the signifier ‘Shirley Jackson’. No previously published study catalogs the texts which include stories by Jackson. Includes a list of anthologies, and the comments editors make about the stories and Jackson herself, a section on Jackson’s work in textbooks, and a section on adaptations of her work.
