4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By David J. Boggis on 19 Dec. 2013

In previous years I've found the Writers' Handbook to be better and more richly informed than the old faithful Writers' and Artists' Yearbook. This one has proved a disappointment. There are nothing like the number of informed essay pieces, and the ones that do appear contain some advice that strikes me as odd. Why, for instance, would one wish to submit a computer-printed MS in such a fashion that it appears to have been typed on an old-fashioned manual typrewriter? What sense does that make?

The main use of this is that it gives you access to online listing and contact details for publishers.

Does what it says on the tin but the cover curls up after a few days. Very poor quality printing. This book is simply a listing of names and addresses of publishers. You really need The Writers Handbook to gem up on everything you need to know about publishing your book.
