Musical Books Author Index

One of my favorite genres to read is fiction with a musical theme, or with a musical aspect to the story in some form or other. In the very best examples, the musical element plays a pivotal or crucial role in the plot itself. In others, the music just provides part of the setting or background to the story.

Since I'm a musician myself, and an inveterate bookworm, the combination of these two parts of my life, music and reading, makes for an especially enjoyable exercise for me. Consequently, I am always on the lookout for such books, and read any that I come across. In this post, I've created an index to all of the books on the blog that have a musical aspect to them. They are mostly fiction, but there is some nonfiction included as well. Enjoy!

In addition to this index, science fiction, fantasy, mystery and suspense, "other" fiction and nonfiction indexes are also available.
