For a guide focusing on edible mushrooms, I would suggest Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms of New England and Eastern Canada by David Spahr. Even if you're not in the northeast, it probably has plenty of mushrooms in your area. The author is also very cautious, and only recommends the safest mushrooms.

I find a lot of shelf fungi out in the woods, and I am interesting in culturing them. I though to collect the spores I could tape a piece of paper to the underside and come back the next day. What season do shelf fungi drop their spores?
