General Fiction Index
Home Introduction List of Magazines Missing Issues Indexes

Introduction

As discussed in the section on the FictionMags Index Family, the FictionMags Index itself contains (or will contain) all the data from each of the genre-specific indexes discussed in that section, but, in addition to that, it also contains information on thousands of other magazines and issues from A. Lynes & Son’s Illustrated Magazine to Zoom. Much of this data is, of necessity, fragmented and incomplete, but it must be stressed there are also some very significant "general fiction" titles indexed, including, for example:

and so on, and so on.

To help put focus on these magazines (not least to identify missing issues) the General Fiction Index has been created to contain:

A list of all the magazines that are considered part of this index can be found here while a detailed list of the magazines and issues for which contents information is still needed can be found here.

If you think you can help with any of the above, or would just like more detail on the project, then please – all contributions are welcome, no matter how small!
