Hooray for Hollywood: A Cultural Encyclopedia of America’s Dream Factory, edited by Bob Batchelor, Norma Jones, and Kathleen Turner 

Hollywood has long influenced popular culture, both as a source of entertainment and as the subject of legends.

Entries will focus on individuals (actors, directors, writers, and producers), films, television shows, technologies, and issues surrounding contemporary Hollywood.

We need writers RIGHT NOW!

We also have compensation for some of the entries!

The Lost Generation: An Encyclopedia brings to life the Jazz Age and the artists, writers, and influential figures that made it one of the nation’s most interesting and compelling periods. Since commentators often use the Lost Generation in comparison with our own age, the reference work enables readers and researchers engaged with the topic a means of understanding the comparison, as well as the contrasting ideas driving that era and our own.
