We would like to thank all those who have helped to bring together our two online resources, and In particular Mary Yardley, the editor of Who Else and joint editor of Who Next alongside Viv Warren, whose continued hard work and commitment has made it possible to bring these invaluable online resources to fiction readers old and young. We would also like to extend our thanks to Ian Baillie who was the editor of Who Else for many years prior to Mary taking over.

We at Fiction Explorer would also like to acknowledge the crucial role of the small team of advisors, who provide support to the editors. Choosing which authors to include, which to omit, and who writes like whom, is a carefully considered process, and takes full advantage of their skills and experience.
