Welcome to SF Reviews
It is the 26th August 2012 and I've just stepped out onto the roof to look at the distant Moon. What a giant leap it was. Goodbye, Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon.
SF Reviews is my collection of reviews of Science Fiction novels.
These are my reviews and are therefore biased and superficial.
I prefer paperbacks because they are so convenient. I want to read the book,
not stroke its cover. I can slip a paperback into my
briefcase, or jam it into my back pocket. I review novels rather than
short-stories (unless I make an exception which, of course, I am allowed to do).
Book reviews are uploaded every month*. Use the menu at top of the page to

or check back in a few days and check the
News to see what's new or
Recent for what has been uploaded over the last few months.
If a novel contains perceptive criticism of the human condition, I
probably skipped that page and failed,
in my review, to draw attention to its incisive power
If character development took place I doubt I noticed it.
If there were radical technological or scientific concepts, maybe I read through to the end
If there were heroic deeds by ordinary people, then hey I was in there with
them and it's ranked high.
If there was alien sex, I'm adult enough to handle that and no way would
it have somehow clocked up an unjustifiably
high SOJALS rating
