Welcome to the FSFH Book Review

(2nd Edition)

I am, to a mere handful of people, known as The Fragrant Wookiee.  

(Don't ask).

A number of years ago I had another website of the same name on which I voiced my occasionally controversial (but hopefully fair) opinions about the great number of novels, graphic novels and novellas I'd read in the Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror genres. 

I felt that now was the right time to update and expand.

 

HOW TO USE THE SITE:

It's very simple (and if you don't get the hang of it quickly, then you're also probably very simple); you simply browse through the menu to the left to find the surname of the author whose work you're looking for.  In the cases of collaborations or anthologies, the books are alphabetised by their title.  Where relevant, I'll include internal links to help you find more of what you want to see.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

These reviews are my own highly biased opinions.  Authors put in a tremendous amount of work to produce a novel and that should always be kept in mind, even if you don't find yourself enjoying the book.  I try not to pull my punches and am sometimes brutally honest in my reviews, but no offense is intended and if any is taken then please get in touch - I'm happy to post counterpoints.

Also, BEWARE SPOILERS!  I try to avoid anything that will ruin a story, but there's still going to be some spoilers, so consider yourself warned.

 

THIS WEBSITE IS A WORK-IN-PROGRESS.

It is neither complete nor comprehensive and it's likely to be riddled with errors and typos.  You start paying me and I'll do better, okay?

 

SPECIAL THANKS:

To the reviewed authors who have offered feedback and, in some cases, free books.  (You've got to love free books!)
