Thank you!

Hi Nathan: the response you posted redirecting me to a prior response, was unrelated to my question. This question was not about quotes, but about using book comparisons.
thanks,

Whoops, sorry! Misread it. I think it's okay to compare as in "will appeal to fans of blankety and blankety" as long as it doesn't seem as if you have the other author's endorsement. Hope that helps.
