Great improvements, Scot.  

Regarding the ToC's of Anthologies: 

Are you asking for contributions of typed lists for these or individual
author collections, and if so, what format, which authors, etc.

> *Home page has been somewhat restructured into more meaningful categories:

> 
> * Searching the DJ database by author has been changed to a single 
> continuous list instead of 26 separate ones:
> http://www.dogeared.com/Identifiers/titleIndexAuthors.html
> This does away with certain problems of location ("Where do I find De 
> Quincy?") since you can search all the authors' names at once using 
> your browser's Search tool (Find: Quincy)
> 
> * An introductory article has been added explaining what's in the 
> database and how to get around in it:
> http://www.dogeared.com/Identifiers/djAuthors.html
> Parts have been taken from other articles and new tables constructed 
> making things clearer.
> 
> * An article has been added describing the four ongoing projects 
> (dust jackets, blurbs, book notes, anthology tables of contents) and 
> how to contribute - even if you don't have a scanner:
