NOTE: as is the case with all bibliographies, this one is far from comprehensive. New books are being published all the time, and because many haiku collections are or have been published by micro-presses in impossibly small print runs, assembling a truly comprehensive haiku bibliography is perhaps impossible. That being said, we will add books, and also articles, essys, etc., to this bibliography as we discover them. In the interest of helping readers locate the books included here we have listed along with the standard bibliographic information the Library of Congress classification information (where applicable). —TH
