Fantastic Fiction


For all you bibliophiles like me...

You MUST check out Fantastic Fiction.

Fantastic Fiction is a UK-based website dedicated to, yep, you guessed it, all things fiction!

It's sort of the IMDB for fiction.

I started using this website when I first worked in the Chain Bookstore as it's a great resource for booksellers who need to find out who wrote that book or what other books an author has written (or most often other books in a series, or the order of books in a series!) with the click of a few buttons.

It's extremely comprehensive. You can search by author or book title, and when you search by author it will bring up a small bio, plus a list of books (with cover images and links to synopsis for most) that the author has written. It also lists various editions, new and upcoming titles and also gives you series names and lists the books in the order that they were written within that series. A great way of finding new (or old) books from an author you love.

It will also give you a list of other authors that visitors to that page have also looked at, and they are usually authors who write a similar kind of book or within the same genre. A great way to find new authors and books to read.

So, if you haven't already, I suggest adding Fantastic Fiction to your favourites list now!
