Description: From Library Journal
Public librarians Jacob and Apple list 1,257 series of English-language adult fiction, excluding mysteries, "that tell a continuing story or are united by a regional, social, or philosophical theme." For each novel in a series, they provide author, series title (if any), title, bibliographical information, brief plot summary, genre, and subject headings. This guide is comparable in content, scope, and price to Sequels (ALA, 1990. 2d ed.), which includes mysteries. Despite the overlap, the two works complement each other; for example, Sequels gives fuller listings for Balzac and Zola but omits R.S. Surtees and was published before Marion Z. Bradley's "Black Trillium" trilogy appeared. Errors creep into the current work: Arnold Bennett's The Roll Call is omitted from his "Clayhanger" series; first American edition dates for Surtees's Handley Cross (1930) and Jorrock's Jaunts and Jollities (1928) and for William Beckford's Vathek (1786) are off by decades. Still, this work provides a wealth of information that is not easily found elsewhere. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
