Booklist Review

The fourth edition of Sequels: An Annotated Guide to Novels in Series is a substantial update of the 1997 book, more than 113 pages longer and larger in physical size. All of the entries from the earlier books have been retained and updated, while many more series that would be found in a medium-sized public library have been added. In the A listing alone, there are 61 new entries. The book follows the same format as in the earlier editions, with entries in alphabetical order. Each entry includes the author's name, an introduction to the series, and an annotated list of all the books in the series with original publisher and publication date. Information is current through 2007. The book has a title index; however, it no longer has the subject index that was in the third edition, which is a drawback. This new edition of Sequels will be welcomed by librarians because of the numerous new and updated series listings and the excellent annotations. However, libraries that have added databases such as NoveList or The Reader's Advisor Online or, for that matter, the electronic version, eSequels already have sequel information and book descriptions and will have to decide if they also need a print resource.--Jacob, Merle Copyright 2010 Booklist
