Author Index |  Title Index |  First Year (1942) |  Prior Year (1982) |  Next Year (1984) |  Last Year (1999)
The printing company used for the Detective Book Club wemt out of business at the start of the year. No volumes were issued (according to Cook) from January to April. Though October, when Cook's listing comes to an end, there are regular monthly issues and , bimonthly, two issues for the inner circle, i.e. an average of 2 volumes per month. After October, when original publication date is used to assign a volume to a year, there are 10 more volumes listed for 1983. Some of these almost certainly where really issued for 1984, and got caught in a backup when Black's publisher failed.
