Tell me about Bluefarb.
An author’s name, title in
quotations, and page numbers is an
invitation to join the hunt.
Many long essays in books and
periodical articles may cover
several of a certain author’s stories.
To save space in their index, the
editors of Walker’s decided to give
the full citation only once.
Hence, when this type of citation is
found, you must hunt up the list to
find the first citation.
