I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

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