In addition, I started down a path for making a case that "author" or 
"creator" should be added to hreview.  When I review books on my blog, 
the most glaring omission in the microformat markup is that the author 
isn't annotated semantically.

These pages are the results of my poking around:


I think Julian is talking about marking up the work of fiction rather 
than its review, but the identifying info ought to be common.
