Noew, readers will be happy that the soon-to-be-released second edition has added 1,600 new books and 400 new series. To Be Continued, Second Edition, maintians the first volume's successful formula that featured concise A-to-Z entries packed with useful information, including titles, publishers, publication dates, genre categories, annotations, and subject terms. Among the genre categories that can be found in To Be Continued are romance, science fiction, crime novel, horror, adventure, fantasy, humor, western, war, Christian fiction, and others.
Book News Annotation:
Illinois librarians Jacob and Apple provide readers with a guide for finding subsequent books by a particular author that use the same character, plot lines, and themes as one they just read and enjoyed. They mention no date for the first edition, but the second is enlarged to cite over 1,700 series. They do not include mysteries, which they say are connected only by character. The main listing is by author, and indices are by title, genre, subjects and literary forms, and time and place.
