Vampires, zombies, ghosts, and ghoulies: there are more things going bump in the night than ever. So how do you wend your way through all of them to find the ones that interest a particular reader? RA expert Spratford updates her advisory to include the latest in monsters and the macabre, including

  • Lists of recommended titles, authors, and sub-genres, all cross-referenced for quick reference
  • Tips for effectively practicing horror RA, with interview questions for gauging a reader s interests
  • An expanded resources section, with an overview addressing the current state of horror lit, and suggestions of how to dig deeper
As both an introductory guide for librarians just dipping their toes into the brackish water of scary fiction, as well as a fount of new ideas for horror-aware reference staff, Spratford s book is infernally appropriate.

About the Author:

Becky Siegel Spratford co-authored the first edition of The Horror Readers' Advisory: The Librarian's Guide to Vampires, Killer Tomatoes, and Haunted Houses. She has been a Readers' Advisor since 2000 at the Berwyn (Illinois) Public Library. She graduated with honors from Dominican University's Graduate School of Library and Information Science in January of 2001. She is currently an adjunct faculty member at the same school, teaching Readers' Advisory Service two semesters a year. Spratford also contributes Read Alike articles for NoveList, is a member of the Adult Reading Roundtable Steering Committee, and is the author of the blog RA for All: Horror.

Review:

"The author's parting words are, 'horror patrons are not monsters; they just like to read about them'. This guide will be valuable to any librarian who needs to understand one of the most popular fiction genres today. It is also enjoyable reading and is recommended on both levels." --Australian Library Journal
