Book Reviews (2017)

Today (31/10/2017) I saw a blog with the books the author had read listed by year. It’s a good way of proving that a writer is well read and I decided to emulate it. Fortunately, almost everything I’ve read, I’ve reviewed for SFcrowsnest and my page there has a record of it all in chronological order. However, it is not very easy to navigate so here I’ll put clickable links to each review.  SFcrowsnest is a great site with loads of great reviews and stacks of information on what’s happening in the worlds of SF, fantasy, horror and anything else that tickles the nerd palate. Along with the review links I have provided Universal Book Links from books2read so you can buy them from the retailer of your choice – Kobo, Barnes and Noble etc. The Universal Links only work for ebooks so where only a physical book exists I have put a link to Hive UK, a bookseller that supports the High Street.  That only works in the UK though there may be similar ones in other countries. Shop around. Where books are available from Smashwords I have also put a Smashwords link and I do get affiliate fees from that. Little tiny ones. Click on the title for the review, the Smashwords link to buy it there or the Universal link to go where you like. There are also website links for some smaller magazines that are not on Smashwords. Buying directly from them means they get more loot, which helps keep them going. The general aim of the links is to lead you away from the monopolistic, own-it-all, grab-it-all non-tax paying greedy sites. I mention no names. Bots everywhere.
