Introduction and Acknowledgements

Welcome to Daughter of the Night: an Annotated Tanith Lee Bibliography. This is hypertext version of a bibliography first published (on paper) in an edition of 100 copies in the summer of 1993. It is revised and updated on a regular basis to reflect new publications.

The purpose of this bibliography is to list all English language publications in both England and the United States of all books and stories by Tanith Lee. The listings are divided into several sections. The content and format of each are described below.

Separate Publications

This section contains a listing of all published books by Tanith Lee, arranged alphabetically by title. Within each title, editions are listed chronologically. To make navigation a little easier, this section has been split up into a series of relatively small pages. To help you find the book you're looking for, the Table of Contents shows the titles of the first and last item on each page.

For the first edition of each title, as well as the first hardcover edition in those cases where the work was published originally in paperback, the listings in this section have the following format:

Place of publication, publisher and year of publication are transcribed as they appear on the title page of the book. If they were determined from some other source, typically the copyright page, they will be placed within square brackets. If the price appears within square brackets, this indicates that there was no price printed on the book itself. Note that if a certain item is omitted from the entry, it is because it doesn’t apply to that particular edition.

Later editions are described as follows:

The term "mass-market paperback" is used to refer to a book that is perfect bound in stiff paper wrappers measuring approximately 4.25 inches x 7 inches (10.8 cm x 17.8 cm). Mass-market paperbacks are available in a variety of locations such as newsstands and supermarkets, as well as bookstores. A "trade paperback," also known as a quality paperback, is somewhat larger in size than a mass-market paperback, and can usually be purchased only in bookstores.

Later printings of a book from the same publisher are not noted, unless something about the book changed, such as its price, ISBN, or catalog number.

Cover images for the first edition of all books described in this bibliography, as well as a selection of later editions and printings, may be viewed by clicking on the which appears at the end of the listing.

Whenever possible, we have tried to base the information in each listing on our examination of an actual copy of the book. Since we were not always able to do this, we have been forced to rely upon secondary sources for some of the details. We have indicated each of these unseen items with an asterisk at the end of the listing, and would be particularly grateful if anyone could provide either confirmation or additional information for these entries.

Properly speaking, one of the titles we have included in this section does not belong here. Night Visions 1 is actually an anthology, not a separate publication consisting entirely of material by Tanith Lee. However, since the book contains a significant amount of new material by the author, and since it was published in a signed-and-numbered limited issue, we felt that it was of considerably more interest than other anthologies. As a result, we chose to describe the book fully in this section, rather than to simply list its contents in Contributions to Books and Periodicals.

Contributions to Books and Periodicals

This section lists all stories and poems that were published in a magazine, an anthology, or in one of the author's short story collections. Arrangement is once again alphabetical by title, with publications listed chronologically within title. This section has also been split up into a series of relatively small pages. As with the previous section, the Table of Contents shows the titles of the first and last item on each page.

If the story appeared in a magazine, the format of the listing is:

For appearances in an anthology, the following format is used:

Only the first edition of an anthology will be listed. A "reprint anthology" is one in which most if not all of the material has been reprinted from previous publications. An "original anthology" is one consisting primarily of previously unpublished material. An "original/reprint anthology" is one that contains significant amounts of both new and reprint material.

For appearances in collections already described fully in Separate Publications, the following format is used:

Pagination will be given for the first appearance of a particular story. Only pages which contain some text will be cited. Pages which consist entirely of an illustration will not be noted.

Story lengths are indicated by the following standard terms:

Word counts are approximations only.


Translations are being added gradually to the bibliography. Daughter Of The Night aims to be as comprehensive a bibliography as possible and will strive to show the extent of the popularity and belovedness of the author in non-anglophone countries. Please note that this is a work in progress and must, for all practical purposes, take a back seat to forthcoming and current English language publications being added to the bibliography.

Any reader or fan out there with access to any translations of material in non-western languages is asked to email the webmistress of the site. Any contributions are greatfully acknowledged and appreciated.
