Other Book Reviews

The book reviews are alphabetical by author and subdivided via genre.  In cases where more than one of an author's works are reviewed, they are listed in order of publication.  Some of these reviews were written by other people back when the Sci-Fi Fan Letter was an in store newsletter at the World's Biggest Bookstore.  With one exception, they were all WBB bookstore employees (and the exception was an Indigo bookseller from another Toronto store).  Their pseudonyms in no particular order are: Mel, Cat, Sheila, DG-88, Leeman, Chud, James Duncan, Sandra, Rose, Gord, Kat and James Bernard.  They helped me make the newsletter a success for the 19 monthly issues it ran before I switched over to more regular and varied blog posts.  Their reviews are all credited to them, and shown on this page in brackets as guest reviewers.  As to my own reviews, it took some time before I'd devised my current format (with pros/cons) so go easy on my beginner work.
