Welcome to Omphalos’ Science Fiction Book Review. This is my attempt at documenting the merits of the English language’s best science fiction stories, both new and old. You will not find a crack team of book reviewers here, like on other web sites. What you see here was written by me and me alone, and I’m generally known for having a few problems with my own mother tongue. All opinions here are mine, so please don’t look for objectivity, even if it feels like that was what I was trying to do. Keep in mind that everything on this site is my opinion, so if you are looking for objective and/or academic/scholarly commentary about these works, you will likely be disappointed. I love SF, and I have a lot of opinions about what is going on with the genre and why, and I usually don’t hold back much. You may comment as you wish. I am known for leaving up all comments, even the aggressive and insulting posts by assholes, so don’t feel that you have to hold back either. If you want to drop me a line, please do so here.
