Reviews

None of us can afford not to have a copy of this book at arm's length. Students deserve a copy in their laboratories. In summary: order it now. (Richard P Korf, Plant Pathology Herbarium, Cornell University, US) The Dictionary of the Fungi is surely one of the most indispensable of all mycological publications - every student of the fungi should own, or have access to, a copy of the most recent edition. (Bryce Kendrick, Mycologist, Feb 2003)

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.
