Anthony Burgess - a bibliography

Many thanks to the International Anthony Burgess Foundation for the use of their Bibliography

Anthony Burgess had an immense literary output. The bibliography below includes all of his works published in book-length form and some of the works of other writers whom he edited (such as Joyce and Maugham), but does not include his uncollected writings; nor does it identify all the introductions and prefaces he contributed to other writers' works. Also, in most cases this listing only identifies British first editions; American first editions were usually published after the British ones, and are only included here if the title was different from the British version. In most cases, subsequent editions of Burgess's works are also not listed, unless, as is the case with the Malayan Trilogy (1964) or The Complete Enderby (1995), the new edition assumes a different form from the original. For a more complete bibliography of Burgess's writings, please refer to the bibliographic sources provided at the end of this section.
