Dave Dobbyn Bibliography

This list is by no means exhaustive, nor have the latest round of Islander articles been added. If you have any information to contribute, please e-mail me. I'm also interested in obtaining copies of the following articles which are titled in red. I own those which have blue titles, and green underlined titles mean the story is on-line, so click it to view.

Most of this bibliography was generated by searching for "Dave Dobbyn" on the INNZ Index New Zealand directory.

Titles are currently sorted by date. I may get around to sorting by publication one day. Don't hold your breath. I am slowly trying to contact some of the authors of the blue titled articles to seek permission to put their work up on this site.
