I wanted to return to a genre I had read long ago and not returned to in many years. However, having been away from the genre for so long ... I didn't have a clue who among the vast array of authors would be considered great introductions to the old field.
So, as one of my instructors used to say, "Just Google it!" I did. I searched for the top writers in that genre for the previous year. I took the resulting list of authors and books to the local library, picked out a couple that looked interesting, and the results were wonderful.
Stress dropped away, I met new authors with exciting concepts to pursue, and have been having great fun catching up to where the writers in this field are today. I highly recommend this form of stress relief.
Just Google it is a sound approach ... provided you ask the right questions.
Wishing you exciting explorations and happy reading for years to come.
