I stopped reading fantasy (except for Terry Pratchett) and scifi about 1980
or so, and took it up again very recently. Mostly I have depended on
Amazon ('people who bought this book also bought...') for other
suggestions. Then I branched out to winners of Hugos, Nebulas, etc.
Then I found allreaders.com where they have a search engine where you put
in your preferences for plot, characters, writing style and so forth and
then you get a list of books.
I'd like to know if there are other such search engines you know of. Also,
is there a reverse engine? That is, you put in the book's title and you
get the characteristics of the book, like war or war, magic or no magic,
I can state with authority (Spike's) that there are several scifi readers
on this list, and so I am asking you if you can answer the above questions.
I thank you very much.
