My review of Gene Wolfe’s recent novel Home Fires has been published today by Strange Horizons. This is the first review I’ve written for a venue other than this site. If something possessed you to read through the archives of this blog chronologically, it would probably be obvious that a couple years ago I tried to “raise my game” as Martin Lewis later put it. This is an avocation without a lot of obvious yardsticks for how well one’s doing, so this is a fairly gratifying moment.
This doesn’t mean reviews on this site will be any less frequent (not that they are very frequent to begin with). Expect to see an in-depth review of Patrick Ness’ widely acclaimed but in my view slightly problematic Chaos Walking trilogy here later this week.
