By identifying similarities in various books, this annual selection guide helps readers to independently choose titles of interest published in the last year.
Each entry describes a separate book, listing everything readers need to know to make selections. Arranged by author within six genre sections, detailed entries provide:
Author, title, series, character name, character description, time period, geographic setting and genre/sub-genre indexes are included to facilitate research.
"Experts in their fields, chosen because of their experience, compile entries as well as essays preceding their respective genre sections, which discuss background and different perspectives. Entries include full bibliographic information, plot summaries, review locations, and alternative reading selections. Entries are also available online at GaleNet, which includes nonfiction and mainstream fiction. The online site is updated twice a year."
