"The unwritten created by Gross and Carey."
Annotation:
Having a very popular writer for a dad is fine, but Tom Taylor's situation is a little more complicated. His dad, Wilson Taylor, wrote 13 fantasy books with him, Tommy Taylor, as the main character, a Harry Potter-like boy wizard. Let's just say it made for a pretty weird childhood. One that got even weirder when Wilson disappeared, forcing Tom to support himself through appearing at nerd conferences and on TV spots. Tom has always assumed that, aside from using his name, the Tommy Taylor books were pure fabrication. But he's beginning to think that some of the wild fantasy his dad describes might be pretty close to the truth.

Praise

"A taut thriller that slyly plays off the real-world mania for imaginary ones like that of Harry Potter....By the time the first story is done, Carey has not only created a brisk and addictive story, sketched with crafty allusions to classic literature, but also neatly subverted the celebrity-worship manias of fantasy fandom and questioned the very nature of storytelling itself." 11/16/2010
