Summary
  • "Like genre fiction, genre authors often don't get the respect of authors with literary credentials, despite their immense popularity. Genre fans, however, hunger for information about their favorite writers. This compilation focuses exclusively on genre fiction authors, profiling representatives from all major genres - mystery/detective, crime, adventure/suspense, thriller, horror, fantasy, science fiction, Western, historical, women's and romance. While the emphasis is on contemporary authors - such as Julia Alvarez, Maeve Binchy, Cliye Cussler, Fay Kellerman, Dean Koontz, Terry McMillan, Anne Rice, Nora Robers, and Scott Turow - those classics such as J. R. R. Tolkien, who are still in print and widely read, are also included. In addition to information about the personal and writing lives of this fascinating and diverse group, users will find a complete list of the authors' published fiction and nonfiction works, Author photos' accompany many of the profiles
  • This reference can be used by adult and teen readers seeking information about their favorite writers, and is a useful source for student reports and research papers."--BOOK JACKET
