book-review.jpgWelcome! Genreviews is a new readers forum for the discussion and evaluation of adult genre fiction. Visitors are invited to recommend books and authors, share links and make comments.

I created this online reading journal for a graduate library science course entitled “Reading Interests of Adults”Link to course syllabus and readings:  http://www.scils.rutgers.edu/~dalbello/courses/585/s2007/585s2007home.html

Over the next five months, the course will discuss classic and contemporary fiction spanning ten genres: mystery/detective fiction, westerns, horror, fantasy, science fiction, romance, new age, christian reading, comic books and tabloids. Journal entries will discuss selected works, critical analyses and resources for each genre.

copy-of-avatar-genreviews.jpgThis blog will be a journey of genre discovery for me since my preference over the past few decades has been either to read pop non-fiction or to gravitate to movies and music for entertainment.

Thanks for sharing in this journey.

  1. If you’d like to review a humorous Texas mystery, I can offer a free e-book of my recent novel, CHOKE: An Imogene Duckworthy Mystery. Here’s a tiny bit about it:

    When Uncle Huey is found murdered in his diner in tiny Saltlick, TX, a half-frozen package of mesquite-smoked sausage stuffed down his throat, Imogene Duckworthy, an unwed mother who longs to be a PI, gets her chance to solve a real crime.
