Tate, a self-described freelance editor who holds a master's degree in English, first published this work under the title F. Scott Fitzgerald A to Z(Facts On File, 1998). Her new edition converts the book's single alphabetical sequence into two sequences-one for "Works" and a second for "Related People, Places, and Topics." Other changes, though fairly minor, are good: an enlarged biographical essay, the addition of several hundred-word "Critical Commentaries" for five of Fitzgerald's novels and 19 of his stories, and updated critical bibliographies. Though the publisher's web site refers to this edition as "revised, reorganized, and fully updated," this reviewer found very few differences between their entries (there are approximately 2000 in each). Further, many of the illustrations appearing in the first edition are missing here. A chronology of Fitzgerald's life completes the book.
