This is a research project by Kevin I. Slaughter of Underworld Amusements.

If you’ve found yourself here, presumably you were searching for information on Benjamin DeCasseres. As I find more information, I will be adding it as a research as time permits. There is not a proper biography of DeCasseres, and the few article-length ones that exist seem to leave out important details.

This site’s main goal is to produce and make available a comprehensive bibliography of the works of DeCasseres. This will not only include his books, but his magazine articles and newspaper work as well, though the latter two will be the most difficult and voluminous.

You’ll find information in various states of completion. Some of it will be unintentionally false, as I’m working from a number of primary and secondary sources to collect this data. Your input is appreciated! If you have information that can elaborate or correct anything on this site, please get in touch.

Various bits of information will be posted on the “Blog” page, when they don’t fit elsewhere.
