Description: From School Library Journal

This useful book begins by providing a definition of fantasy and a history of the genre. Subsequent chapters provide descriptions and annotated lists of titles in various subgenres including "Sword and Sorcery," "Saga, Myth, and Legend," "Alternate and Parallel Worlds," and "Graphic Novels." The selected titles come from many sources, including library and bookstore patrons, award winners, and reader polls. There is also a chapter on resources such as bibliographies, biographies, atlases, online resources, organizations and conventions, and awards. A glossary of common fantasy vocabulary, the "YALSA-BK Best Fantasy for YA List," and a recommended core collection are appended.-Marlyn K. Roberts, Codman Square Library, Dorchester, MA
