Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997) conflates this writer and Rosemary (Rosie) Jackson (entry by John Clute) [CORRECTED prior to 2017-11-28]
Result of that 2017 correction: Encyclopedia of Fantasy (online, corrected) contains a biographical entry for Rosemary (Rosie) Jackson --known here as a writer of nonfiction about fantasy literature-- and no entry for R. E. Jackson --known here as a writer of children's novels, including some fantasy fiction. --Pwendt|talk 15:21, 19 February 2020 (EST)
