Garland Publishing, Inc, New York, is a US specialist publisher of a wide range of reference works and facsimile reprints, only some of which are related to sf. In 1975 G published the Garland Library of Science Fiction: 45 titles, selected by Lester del Rey, issued in durable editions. The series was criticized, partly for some idiosyncratic choices – unexceptional novels by Stanton A Coblentz, H Beam Piper and George O Smith – but chiefly for choosing inferior versions of the books to reproduce. Intended as an accompanying critical history by Del Rey was The World of Science Fiction: 1926-1976: The History of a Subculture (1979), which in the event appeared from Del Rey Books first and then from Garland in 1980. Among Garland's very occasional books of genre interest since that time have been The Literature of Fantasy: A Comprehensive, Annotated Bibliography of Modern Fantasy Fiction (1979) by Roger C Schlobin, Science Fiction and Fantasy Series and Sequels: A Bibliography, Volume 1: Books (1986) by Tim Cottrill, Martin H Greenberg and Charles G Waugh, and Horror Literature: A Reader's Guide (1990) and Fantasy Literature: A Reader's Guide (1990), both edited by Neil Barron.
