Anglo-Indian Fiction: A Brief Outline undertakes to offer a concise account of the works of fiction written by Anglo-Indian writers – the British/European expatriates and their progeny who lived in India as part of the British colonial venture. This book covers a period from 1780 to 2011. Since Bhupal Singh’s Survey(1934) no sequential and/or comprehensive work on British India fiction has been attempted so far; albeit some colonial/postcolonial scholars have often frequented this sub-genre for critical studies on a few specific aspects. This outline has an introduction, six chapters, conclusion, appendices and a broad bibliography. Major individual writers are discussed under three heads –  biographical information,  treatment of major literary works and  key notes, etc.
