Description
With hundreds of thousands of books being published each year, it is difficult to keep abreast of current genre fiction and popular reading tastes. This classic guide helps. By defining genres, describing their features and characteristics, and grouping titles by genre, subgenre, and theme, the book helps those who work with readers understand distinct patterns in reading habits and book selection; and allows users to identify "read-alikes" and other titles their patrons will enjoy.
Description
In addition, more than 5,000 titles-approximately one-third new to this edition-are classified, focusing on titles published since the last edition along with perennial classics and benchmark titles. The popular feature "D's Picks" identifies new and noteworthy titles in the genre, while features new to this edition include: Lists of selected "classic" authors and titles in each of the genres, Chapters on Christian fiction and emerging genres (women's fiction and "chick lit"), Sections on "genreblends" in those areas where they occur (e.g., horror/humor, mystery/romance), Three new essays by genre experts and the foremost proponents of readers' advisory that shed further insight into the nature and importance of this field.
