I do hope this is the right forum to post this question. When I was on vacation, someone suggested a series of books to me. I can't remember the author except it's something like Odem. It was a man and it was some sort of alternate reality thing with a library setting. Is this ringing any bells for anyone? Thanks in advance.

Could it be Mel Odom, the Rover series that you're looking for? Check out his website at www.melodom.com. Enjoy!

Thank you. I thought I would remember but when I got back from vacation, I was drawing a total blank. Not sure it's my thing but I promised the gentlemen who shared the info with me that I would look at them.

Could it be The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. It's not Odem, but it is alternate reality with literary characters.

I love the Jasper Fforde. I've read all his books. It was Odom. As soon as I saw Rover, I knew it was that one.
