Sr. Editor Margaret Heilbrun presents her annual “Best Acknowledgments” and bestows the Amanda Foreman Award upon the author(s) and book(s) her subjective committee of one found most deserving of kudos for gracious and specific thanks offered to named library and archives staff who, in providing research access to the author, helped bring the book to publication.
LJ is once again venturing into new territory, as we did with e-original reviews two years ago, with a quarterly column covering what our reviewer considers the best of current erotic fiction (this first foray is just a taste). We will try diligently to keep the lines distinct between erotica and erotic romance; our romance coverage will continue in its six-times-a-year frequency. If the craze for all things erotic is still strong in your library, we trust these reviews will help with those “prickly” collection decisions. Feel free to blush!
