Browse by author or director

In some cases you can look up everything I've got on an individual writer or director. I don't build these pages for every writer because they can be too thin.

Recommendation engines and search

Sometimes you want a very specific kind of book to suit your mood. Something highbrow, non-violent, and not too depressing, perhaps? Or maybe you want a 20th century science fiction film with a female lead? The book recommendation quiz, and the similar film recommendation quiz are useful for this sort of query.

And if all else fails, you can always try the search box.
