NON-FICTION:  This historical non-fiction discusses Guinevere from Arthurian Legend. Guinevere is one of the best-known women in the history of literature. No one actually knows if she really existed, but her name goes back almost a thousand years. Many people know at least one version of her story, usually the version where she is the wife of King Arthur but also has an affair with Lancelot.

SCI-FI/STEAMPUNK:  “Kissed by Literature” is far less romantic than it sounds – in fact, most of the stories in the book are downright creepy, and will no doubt make goose bumps run up and down the reader’s spine. Be warned.
