The website was originally started by TC (Thomas Christensen) and most of the reviews prior to 2005 have been written by him. TC was born in Denmark (and possibly still lives there) and started reading science fiction and fantasy after reading his first book - The Hobbit.
He began reviewing novels in English (his second language) as a way of remembering what he had read and then this expanded so that others could contribute.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
SFBook is entirely funded by Ant including hosting, development and any other costs.
If you enjoy the site please consider a small donation towards the cost of the upkeep and development of SFBook.
