Fantastic Fiction Is, Well, Fantastic!

I have no idea who the workaholic behind the Fantastic Fiction website is. You can’t figure it out from the site, just that it’s someone British. The site doesn’t even look very glam, and there are ads. Ordinarily I’d be telling you that these are indicators of a not-so-great site. But if you want to find out what’s new from your latest author, or you want to quickly see the order of books in your favorite series (you know, like, what’s the third Harry Potter book?), this is a great place to look. You can search authors alphabetically; look for new releases or coming attractions; peruse most popular titles, authors, and series; and even locate authors by year of birth and death. There is even a list of award winning books. Find a book you can’t live without? There are links to discount booksellers. I didn’t even know that there was a new addition to the Uglies series by Scott Westerfield (you know: Uglies, Pretties, Specials) until I found it on the Fantastic Fiction site. (The new sequel is called Extras, by the way!) Be sure to bookmark this site or add it to your del.icio.us bookmarks, all you Blatant Bibliophiles, or you’ll wish you had the next time you’re looking for a new book!
