A no spoiler policy is always followed, subject to the nature of real-time reviews.

My book reviews are written for three separate parties: myself, the readers and the book’s inferred creator. Most reviews elsewhere are actual PREviews for readers. Mine can also be genuine REviews that can be read (a) alongside me as the reader reads the book or (b) after the book is read by the reader.

Books are bought by me for my personal reading and real-time reviewing.

This DF Lewis site was nominated for a British Fantasy Award in 2014 & 2015.

Previews or Reviews

My book reviews are written for three separate parties: myself, the readers and the book’s inferred creator. Most reviews elsewhere are actual PREviews for readers. Mine can also be genuine REviews that can be read (a) alongside me as the reader reads the book or (b) after the book is read by the reader.

H.P. Lovecraft as Phenomenon

image“I think anyone reading the main eleven essays as a gestalt will find a new gestalt of HPL as a multi-faceted phenomenon, a preternatural configuration beyond the tentacles, one that paradoxically attracts, repels and purges. Those who study, admire, hate or pastiche him are lucky to work in his shadow, a shadow more defined after this book but crazily even more ill-defined, too!”

From my review of the new THE AGE OF LOVECRAFT book here:

A book that explores the whys and wherefores of his modern pervasion.
