I found nearly 20 books to add to my too read list, though granted, a few of them I'd already been considering reading.

OK, I wrote this so I'm not going to give it a star rating or tell you it's the best thing ever. But it is a good broad review of what was in print in fantasy in 2007. I also hope I succeeded in my goal to write it with a little more verve and humor than the average readers' advisory or reference book. I love the fantasy genre and I hope that comes through as well.

I'm a librarian in Williamsburg, Virginia, where I specialize in readers' advisory. I also write and blog, mostly about books. Lately, I've come to think of myself simply as a "bookman." It's a way of life.

My first book, Read On... Fantasy Fiction, came out in 2007, and my second, Fellowship in a Ring, a handbook for science fiction and fantasy book groups arrived in late 2009. I love speculative
