Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Help with author/title

 

I'm trying to find the title of a scifi book and all I have is a short plot -

 

1.  Intergalactic traveler visits 3 planets (or maybe 1 planet with 3 regions) and helps each with their basic technology - steam, gunpowder and electricity (the great God Elecktro)?

 

Thanks.

If the book in question was aimed at children or young adults, try www.loganberrybooks.com, and click on "Stump the Bookseller."  It costs $2.00 whether you get an answer or not, but it can be WELL worth it.  Before you spend any money there, be sure to browse the solved stumpers, because your stumper might already be there.  They found a book for me; other stumpers gave me ideas about lost childhood memories I wanted to recover (and did); and I've solved two or three of them myself.  All in all, a great website!
