- Zanzibar: Lardner's first play, produced in Niles, Michigan in 1903 when he was just 18. The program and play are re-produced in full.
- Lardner on Film: a listing of TV and movie adaptations of Lardner's stories. It also lists the movies in which Lardner appeared in person or as a character.
Lardner was a prolific and varied writer, churning out newspaper columns, short stories, humor, commentary, light verse, plays, songs, and even continuity for a comic strip.
Ring W. Lardner: A Bibliography by Bruccoli and Layman, an essential book for the Lardner collector or scholar, catalogs nearly all of Lardner's published work. The alpha-numeric code established in that book is used commonly among Lardner book sellers and buyers. It is very well organized, thoroughly researched, and usefully indexed.
As a complement to the Bruccoli and Layman's bibliography, I will publish on these pages:
- Updates and Corrections to the bibliography.
- Genre and subject listings. The bibliography lists only according to type of publication (books, magazines, newspapers, etc.), so I will include listings of short stories, of humor, of plays, of baseball stories, and the like. I have completed two such lists: the first lists his short stories in chronological order (published date); the second lists his short stories in alphabetical order.
Information about his theater work and his stories that were produced as movies is nearly completed.
I will also include excerpts from his work. If it is difficult to find, good, formerly published in book form, and no longer copyrighted, I will try to print it in full. Currently, I have excerpts from "Alibi Ike" (I know, it's easy to find), Bib Ballads, and The Young Immigrunts. Full-text is available for the essay "Sport and Play," and the books Own Your Own Home and Symptoms of Being 35. I am working on Regular Fellows I Have Met and "Phil and his 4D."
