I don’t get much time to be on here these days, but I hope that some of you may be interested in a little project that I’ve been working on. It’s called “Rockshelf”, and it’s an attempt to try and catalogue fiction about popular music.
This endeavour has already resulted in me discovering and enjoying new books, and there’s many more I’m looking forward to getting hold of. Maybe it might do the same for you.
There are over 200 novels already published over on http://rockshelf.blogspot.co.uk/ – and nearly a thousand more I need to review, so plenty to look at.
We’re completely genre agnostic, whether that be fiction genre or music genre. We hope to capture as many novels set in the world of popular music as we can.
You can search for music genre or publication decade through the “word cloud”.
There’s a separate tab that lists all the novels by the bands that we think inspired the acts in the stories, so if you want novels about or inspired by (e.g.) The Beatles, you can find them easily.
There’s also a Facebook page which will be used to announce new additions to the site and flag up a few of our favourite discoveries.
