Q. Where can I find good online information on contemporary novelists?
One good online source is "Contemporary Novelists" from St. James Press, found on the Libary's web page (hmcpl.org) by selecting "My Digital Library", entering your library card and pin number, and accessing the "Gale Virtual Reference Library." This resource features concise discussions of the lives and principal works of contemporary novelists, written by subject experts. Entries for major writers will includes excerpts of reviews and commentary on the writer and their works. Use this source if you need basic biographical information on a writer or need a basic analysis of an author's work for a book discussion group or talk.
