Book Reviews

 

Boy studying

This is a list of links to my book reviews, ordered from newest to oldest. Reviews associated with the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy (CSFF) Blog Tour are three-parters, typically a summary/synopsis of the book in Part 1, my critique in Part 2, and reaction to reviews by other Blog Tour participants in Part 3.

You can find my reviews of manga, graphic novels, and other book-like works combining visual arts and the written word at the Comics and Media page.

In accordance with FTC guidance, and lest anyone think my good graces as a reviewer can be bought with a free book, I have added a disclaimer to my book reviews where a free copy of the book or any other sort of remuneration (as if) was received from the author or publisher.

Here’s a copy of the disclaimer:

>>This review is based upon a copy of the book provided to me free of charge by the publisher, a courtesy I appreciate, but which does not guarantee my recommendation. I strive to evaluate every book I review purely on its intrinsic merits.<<

If the disclaimer is not present, you can safely assume that I bought the book or story with my own hard-earned cash, found it at the library, or read an electronic copy freely and legally available on the internet.
