Guide to discover new authors

Angus Libraries members can access a new online guide that helps lovers of fiction discover new authors. ‘Who else writes like…?’ lets readers look up their favourite authors and find recommendations for as many as a dozen others who write in a similar style.

Readers can also browse by genre, by character or find lists of prize-winning writers and each entry gives brief information about the author including a link to the author website if available. This online guide is based on the printed book which was first published in the 1990s and quickly became a “bible” for library staff all over the UK.

The content for both the book and the online version of ‘Who else writes like…?’ is compiled from advice given by a panel of librarians from across the UK and in Australia.

‘Who else writes like…?’ can be accessed via the library’s online catalogue on Angus Council’s website.
