I recently had a poem come out at Bewildering Stories, a weekly ezine that has been published since 2002. Afterwards, the managing editor contacted me to say he noticed that I wrote book reviews for my blog, and would I be interested in doing the same thing for the magazine? My answer: "Heck, yeah!"
Well, not really. My answer was a lot more politely phrased than that. :) But the gist was the same. I am pleased to announce that I have joined the staff at Bewildering Stories, and my first review came out yesterday. I decided that rather than start with a new book, I'd go back and look at one of the authors who initially inspired me to write - the wonderful fantasy writer, Tanith Lee. I reviewed one of my favorite books by her, an epic tale called A Heroine of the World. You can check out the review here.
So if you have any suggestions about books you want to have reviewed - including your own - please feel free to contact me. While I can't guarantee a review, I CAN guarantee a look. I'm always looking for fantastic new fiction, nonfiction and poetry to share with readers - and to enjoy for myself, of course. :)
