How to Use This Book

Jen Stevens, Series Editor

This volume is aimed at a variety of audiences and needs.


Fans (and Other Readers)

You can browse through to scope out potentially interesting authors and books to read. If you’d like to find out more about an author, check the “Biographies and Interviews.” Interviews can be an especially fascinating way to get to know your favorite authors. You might also want to check the “Web Sites” section since many authors have their own Web sites and blogs.

For a more in-depth look at a particular novel or story, consult the “Criticism and Readers’ Guides.” And finally, if you’d like to get a larger perspective on the Fantasy genre, check the “General Bibliography”—the names of major fan and writer organizations are included, as well as general encyclopedias on fantasy. You may also want to consult the “Awards” section at the back of the book.


Students

You can browse through the book to get ideas for authors to use for your projects and papers. The “Major Works” section will give you a quick idea of what they’ve published and when.

To find out more about an author’s life, check the “Biographies and Interviews.” They might include interviews with the author, books and articles about the author’s life, or collected letters to or by the author. Some authors have even written autobiographies. There are a number of author Web sites and blogs included under “Web Sites,” which can give you even more information about an author (and their opinions!).
