Biographical Sources for Short Story Writers

  • Literature Resource Center
    Offers a wealth of critical and biographical information. Search for authors as "Person By or About" and select "Biographies" tab. LRC contains the text (without illustrations) of the bio-critical essays from the Dictionary of Literary Biography (Davis Reference, Row12, PS21 .D5185).
  • Literature Online (LION)
    LION now provides links to many author biographies, and these are no longer limited solely to English-language authors. Do a Quick Search for an Author and select "Biography" (where available).
  • Literary Reference Center Plus
    For author biographies, use Advanced Search and search for the author (e.g., William Faulkner) as "Subject Author" and limit Document Type to "Biography."
