What people say:

"…each entry provides an informed discussion of its topic… It is worth keeping on your shelves both to use for reference when you need information, or just for browsing when you need information… a mini-encyclopedia of every aspect of writing." — Writing Magazine

"This offering from the United Kingdom is a handy manual of terms in alphabetical order to aid and advise aspiring (or blocked) novelists, short story writers, playwrights, and poets. Authors Heather Leach and Robert Graham as well as five more contributors listed at the book's beginning are all published fiction writers and professors of creative writing at various universities in England … As a final testimonial to the practicality of this manual: during the course of reading this book, I sat down and cranked out an original short story. While I do not claim that it is a great creative work, Leach and Graham must concur that, for the moment, I have transcended writer's block and conquered problems with beginnings." — Helynne H. Hansen in Rocky Mountain Review of Language and Literature
