Reviews

Here are some book reviews of mine from around the web. These are all straightforward, conventional reviews; longer, more in-depth pieces can by found over on the Essays page. Some of my older pieces are offline now (it happens), so the page focuses mostly on work I’ve done for Bookslut. But if I come upon working links to some of my old stuff, I’ll be adding them, so feel free to check back in later…
