A Reference Guide to Modern Fantasy for Children
A very thorough guide to the fantasies and fantasists selected, this is unlike any other guide to the genre. Only English and American authors of full-length fantasies are included, just 36, with entries for titles, characters, places, and magical objects, and of course the authors. Authors' entries describe major themes of all their full-length works, following biographical notes. Book-title entries give plot synopses and information about the first editions of the books. People who remember something of a fantasy sequence and want to find it again will find this the most helpful guide to fantasies. Choice
