Overview

Readers' Advisory Guide To Horror, The, 2nd Ed. by Becky Siegel Spratford

Vampires, zombies, ghosts, and ghoulies: there are more things going bump in the night than ever. So how do you wend your way through all of them to find the ones that interest a particular reader? RA expert Spratford updates her advisory to include the latest in monsters and the macabre, including

• Lists of recommended titles, authors, and sub-genres, all cross-referenced for quick reference

• Tips for effectively practicing horror RA, with interview questions for gauging a reader's interests

• An expanded resources section, with an overview addressing the current state of horror lit, and suggestions of how to dig deeper As both an introductory guide for librarians just dipping their toes into the brackish water of scary fiction, as well as a fount of new ideas for horror-aware reference staff, Spratford's book is infernally appropriate.
