Front cover story, Ardmore Chronicle – Volume XXVII, No. 43, Saturday, July 29, 1916

The wait is over; this week the last 5 binders of the digitized Edward T. LeBlanc Dime Novel Memorial Bibliography files were added, making the entire work now accessible to scholars and researchers. Meanwhile, work continues at Dimenovels.org on transforming, verifying, linking, and adding to these entries to complete the largest and most complete bibliography of Dime Novels broadly considered to include story papers, thick backs, nickel and dime weeklies, non-fiction works, both in the domestic US, as well with selective international coverage. A host of other new materials join these LeBlanc files, including the integrated complete Audiobook version of the podcast reading of the Bride of the Tomb. Joining this podcast is another audio offering, this from 1979, the Tin Whistle Workshop, from the Philadelphia Ceili Group. As well, check out some of the other newspaper issues, and storypaper and dime novels available. We haven’t jumped the shark just yet!
