Editorial Reviews

Review

"That infectious pleasure in discovering interesting books and sharing them with readers is one of the deepest satisfactions of readers' advisory work. My goal with this book is that it might provide enough background in a genre to give a glimpse of what it is about those authors and their books that fans love." --Joyce G. Saricks, from Chapter One

This book is brilliant, accessible, and quite useful ... for librarians and readers alike. --American Reference Books Annual
