Janet G. Husband and Jonathan F. Husband met and married at their first jobs at the Free Library of Philadelphia. They went on to enjoy long and productive careers in public and college libraries, respectively. Janet was director of the Rockland Memorial Library and the Paul Pratt Memorial Library in Massachusetts. Jon was a reference librarian at Boston State College and Framingham State College. Now retired, they maintain the database of their popular reference guide, Sequels, first published in 1982 when it became an ALA bestseller. Janet earned her MLS at Rutgers University and Jon holds an MA in English from the University of Pennsylvania and an MLS from Drexel University.From Booklist:
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. --Merle Jacob
