The Bird Shaman
has been reviewed twice this month, after Edge:Boston
in August and Locus
One review is by Meredith Sue Willis and appears in the November issue of her online newsletter Books for Readers
, at http://www.meredithsuewillis.com/booksforreaders.html
. This newsletter, which arrives in my inbox every month, casts a wide net, though I think I discern a preference for books engaged with political and social issues. (Willis has herself written one offbeat science fiction novel, The City Built of Starships
). The other review is a long, thorough, serious discussion by Michael Levy, just out in the November issue of The New York Review of Science Fiction.
So that's a total of four, no frothing raves but all positive and respectful, and all in decent places. And that's likely to be the lot. Not everything I might have dreamed of, but, for a self-published book, really not too shabby either.
