Michael O'Brien

Marion Zimmer Bradley was a science fiction fan before she became a famous author, so this early work unsurprisingly feels a lot like some of the early guides to SF books that were published by fans in the early days of the genre. But here we are looking at a very different kind of fantasy!

Worth browsing through if you are at all interested in the subject, but hopelessly outdated if you're looking for a guidebook.
