Hello all,
 
At the suggestion of several contributors to this bibliography, here is
a post of collected titles dealing with exploitation cinema.
 
This list is undoubtedly incomplete, and represents the efforts of
myself and others over a two week period.  Further contributions are
always welcome, and as I continue my search I will post my findings
periodically.
