Mysteries continue to be a mainstay, with fantasy, science fiction, and romance listings, plus non-genre fiction selections from authors such as Edward Abbey and Lawrence Durrell.

"What should I read next?" This classic guide answers the perennial question. The growth of library networks and online catalogs, and the increased use of paperbacks in libraries, has prompted the authors to broaden their scope in
this fourth edition. Mysteries continue to be a mainstay, along with fantasy, science fiction, and romance listings, plus non-genre fiction selections. All of the authors and series in the first three editions have been retained in revised and updated entries (author web sites are new to this edition), and many new series created since 1997 have been added. Series likely to be found
in a medium-sized public library collection are still emphasized. Series aimed at juvenile or young adult readers are generally excluded, but exceptions have been made for series that have a large and loyal adult audience. Entries are
listed alphabetically by the cover-name of the author, and include author biographies. Brief title entries give a short synopsis. There is also
information on film and television adaptations of each title, omnibus collections, and other publications of interest. The authors are retired
librarians.

"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."
