Rogues edited by George R.R. Martin & Gardner Dozois (book review).

In the introduction by George R.R. Martin, ‘Everybody Loves a Rogue’, he tells us how he supported the black hats in old western television series and always had a soft spot for the less than spotless character. In real life, I’ve always felt a charming crook is still a crook and when they steal your […]

Multiverse: Exploring Poul Anderson’s Worlds edited by Greg Bear and Gardner Dozois (book review).

>I’ve read a few short stories by Poul Anderson but am not familiar with his oeuvre so to experience his fictions second hand with ‘Multiverse: Exploring Poul Anderson’s Worlds’ was interesting.

The Mammoth Book Of Best New SF 26 edited by Gardner Dozois (book review).

Reading ‘The Mammoth Book Of Best New SF 26’, as with previous volumes, I still have to wonder what the criteria is for ‘best’, especially as this year it is Analog that was given the short end of the stick and appears to have nothing worthy of printing. Do writers take turns in giving the […]

The Mammoth Book of Best New SF 25, edited by Gardner Dozois (book review).

The latest ‘The Mammoth Book Of Best New SF 25’ is now on the shelves, reprinting the US version, ‘The Year’s Best Science Fiction 29’, so don’t confuse the differing numbers, ours just started later and I guess balancing the numbers would have people seeking four non-existent books in the UK.
