This advisory guide, published twice per year, helps readers to independently choose titles of interest from those published in the last year. Arranged by author within eight genre sections, detailed entries provide publisher and publication date, names and descriptions of characters, review citations, a brief plot summary, listings of other books by the author as well as recommended similar books by other authors and much more. Also available online within Books & Authors.
"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."
