23 Finding these books (Fantasy Authors List)


Many of the books listed are currently in print, or were popular
enough that you should be able to track them down in a
used-bookstore or at the library. I have attempted to note those
that will be particularly difficult to find. This is written
from a United States viewpoint - those of you in Canada, Europe,
Australia, and elsewhere may need to put forth quite a bit more
effort.

The easiest place to start looking if you can't tear yourself
from your computer to go to your local bookstore is amazon.com.
They have a huge selection of books (just about everything in
print, so far as I can tell), are incredibly easy to use, offer
discount prices, and reasonable shipping rates. And, yes, they
do ship everywhere in the world. You can find them at
http://www.amazon.com

Other well-regarded on-line bookstores include Book Stacks (a
personal favorite, since their physical location is my home
town) at
http://www.books.com
and Future Fantasy at
http://futfan.com
Future Fantasy has the tremendous advantage of being a science
fiction and fantasy specialty store, so if you have an obscure
request they are a lot more likely to be able to help you.

All three of the the above are U.S. based. For those in Britain,
Bookpages at
http://www.bookpages.co.uk
has been mentioned to me several times. Another is the Internet
Book Shop, located at
http://www.bookshop.co.uk
If anyone is willing to recommend some European and/or Asian
bookstores with a web presence, I'll be happy to list them.

Finding books that are out of print will take a little more
effort. For those of you in Britain, Dave recommends Fantastic
Literature. They only deal in mail order, and have a large
selection of out-of-print sf, fantasy and horror. Contact them
at: Fantastic Literature, 33 The Ramparts, Rayleigh, Essex, SS6
8NJ

Two of the best places to look for used books on the Web are
Interloc and A.B.E. Try them at
