Guest Reviewers

We welcome reviews from anyone who cares to write one, provided that they are are not reviewing their own work and that the review is constructive.

Over the years there have been a number of guest reviewers who have taken time out of their busy lives to write a review or three on SFBook.

If you fancy writing a review yourself then why not get in touch - we can often provide review copies.

Sadly Gill passed away in August 2013 after a long battle with fibromyalgia. You can read a review of her fantasy saga The Legends of Light which was published by Greyhart Press.

Nate Hawthorne

Nate Hawthorne's small children temporarily extinguished then recently rekindled Nate's love of reading. He has taken up book reviewing in order to better appreciate the ways that books have become fun again.

He particularly enjoys apocalyptic science fiction, creative nonfiction, and books he can enjoy with his kids.
