This article provides a short review of recent developments in the area of the fractional quantum Hall effect. It attempts to provide some intuitively appealing images of the highly correlated electron behavior and the new quasi-particles it creates at half-filled Landau levels. Finally, it surveys in a cursory manner our experimental knowledge and lack of knowledge of composite fermions at fractions different from half-filling. Recent theoretical calculations promise yet more bizarre electronic states to be discovered.
