Omissions, corrections and/or additions to items published/released before 01/01/2008? Please email me - it would help if you made SURFING the first word on your subject line.

Please note that these lists will not include any items published/released after 01/01/2008 until further notice.

The reason is that I simply don't have the time to keep maintaining these web pages for the foreseeable future.

This list is sorted alphabetically by author's name(s).

The reason is that I simply don't have the time to keep maintaining these web pages for the foreseeable future.
