Want to read some FANTASTIC FICTION?

It is unlikely you endfantastic fiction up a librarian without an underlying love of all things written (well most things written). So my inner geek was more than a little excited about the Fantastic Fiction website. This great resource gives you access to bibliographies for over 30,000 authors and information on over 350,000 books. You can see summaries on each book, check what else your favourite author was written, or use the links to find similar authors or stories. This is a brilliant way to browse what you want to read next. There are even handy links on each page to Amazon on other online sellers if you are tempted by any.  I would recommend you would head for your nearest library though but perhaps I am a little biased.
