In Q&A format, 14 writers in a variety of genres and with varying degrees of technical know-how talk about how they use the Internet to gather facts, communicate with sources and other writers, reach their readers, and publish and sell their work. Those interviewed include novelists, playwrights, journalists, and the researcher who does the legwork for best-selling mystery writer Elmore Leonard. They cover topics such as favorite search engines, the accuracy of what they find online, and finding reference sources and articles. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
