Happy Birthday, William Hawkins! 74 years old today!
In honour, I am attaching a bibliography that I have been compiling gradually over the last few years. It expands on the descriptive bibliography published through Apt. 9 Press a few years ago. This includes a number of individual items not included in that first effort, as well as a comprehensive bibliography of magazine publications (well, “comprehensive”; undoubtedly things are missing).
Bill’s bibliography is rich with interesting visuals. To expand a bit on the file posted above, I am including photographs of a number of these items below.
