As a regular buyer of Writers' & Artists Yearbook, I did not expect any alternative would prove more useful.
I was wrong.
Despite generally better reviews for W&A, I found the 2011 edition of Writer's handbook 2011 superior in terms of contacts. Both in terms of information given and some publishers missing from W&A that were promising in 2011 Handbook.
The general advice is to buy both of you are serious about breaking into a new field, or a novice.
I have seen criticism of Handbook's features versus W&A. That may well be true over a single edition, but I found W&A, in their 104th year of publication, is the more complacent of the two. W&A is prone to repetition of earlier edition texts and information.
However, if its sheer number of pages you are after, W&A plays822 versus Handbook's 786.
Trouble is, I'm not convinced the quality of research and updates is superior.
Sadly, you probably do need to buy both [Amazon bundle prices helped me in that decision]..But only for 1 year on present W& A form...
I've bought the last two editions of each, and I still can't decide which is better. I will say that WH does have very good articles and access to a great website, and the information inside is very useful. No writer should be without one or the other.
If you are writingThe Constantine LegacyShroud of ConcealmentDead Men Don't Bite and want to get published, then you should purchase this handbook to guide you through the maze of publishers and what they expect from you.
