Four Reviews and Not Counting

At Vicki's
The Bird Shaman has been reviewed twice this month, after Edge:Boston in August and Locus in October.

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.

Edge can be quite... well, snarky with some reviews, so count yourself lucky. I'm still stinging from one.

Hm. Sorry to hear it. Kilian Melloy wasn't a bit snarky and I DO count myself lucky. Let's hope you're luckier next time.
