Beacham's encyclopedia of popular fictionUser Review - Book Verdict
These three new volumes continue the 11-volume set published in 1996, which contained three volumes of author biographies and eight with analyses of specific works. In the introduction, the publisher announces plans to expand the series continually, not only with authors already included but also by broadening the scope to include world literature and writers from previous centuries. The wide range of authors covered suggests that "popular" literature might be a misnomer; the set seems to include any author whose work might be assigned to a student or chosen for a report. Arranged alphabetically by title, the volumes range from Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov through Stephen King's lesser-known titles to dated but perennial favories like Michael Crichton's The Andromeda Strain. Each title is examined under headings such as social concerns, themes, characters, techniques, related titles, adaptations, and ideas for group discussion, making it useful for teachers as well. At over $800 for the entire 14-volume set, it's an expensive purchase, but these three continuation volumes could stand alone and will be appreciated in general libraries frequented by students. [The publisher is offering a special discount of $650 for the 14-volume set.--Ed.]--Shelley Cox, Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale
