Magill's Literary Annual Series

Each year, Magill's Literary Annual critically evaluates 150 major examples of series literature published during the previous calendar year. The philosophy behind our selection process is to cover works that are likely to be of interest to general readers, that are written by authors being taught in literature programs, and that will stand the test of time. By filtering down the thousands of books published every year to 150 notable titles, the editors have provided the busy librarian with an excellent reader's advisory tool and patrons with new options for book discussion groups and a guide for choosing worthwhile reading material.
