The best book of this type I've come across is Writng A to Z, edited by
Kirk Polking and published by Writer's Digest Books. It's just that, a
500+ page encyclopedia of writing information, with articles listed
alphabetically. Like all encyclopedias, you'll find a few mistakes, but
overall it's very well done.

Eternal indebtedness I don't really need -- send a check. <g>
