Blog in Exile: Reviews for 6/12

From The Agony Column:
  • a review of Brave New Words: The Oxford Dictionary of Science Fiction edited by Jeff Prucher
  • a review of Tony Ballantyne's novel Capacity
At Fantasy Book Spot, you will find:
  • a review of Karen Hancock's Return of the Guardian King
  • a review of Shadow Over Kiriath, also by Karen Hancock
  • a review of Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Goes to Washington
Pat's Fantasy Hotlist reviews Sergei Lukyaneko's The Night Watch.

SFF World reviews David Anthony Durham's Acacia.

SF Signal reviews the latest posthumous George Alec Effinger collection, A Thousand Deaths.

Strange Horizons reviews Eric Brown's Helix.

Locus Online reprints Graham Sleight's "Yesterday's Tomorrows" column about Issac Asimov, from the print magazine's February 2007 issue.

Blogcritics reviews Megan Whalen Turner's The King of Attolia.

From Book Fetish, where books are mere objects to satisfy sexual obsessions (seriously, what's with all the Internet review sites with aggressively sexy names?), comes...and I use that word deliberately:
Powell's Books has the Atlantic Monthly review of Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policemen's Union up on their site.

Desicritics reviews J.R.R. Tolkien's The Children of Hurin.

Recent additions to Don D'Amassa's Science Fiction Reviews page include Alexis Glynn Latner's Hurricane Moon, Rudy Rucker's Postsingular, Kristine Kathryn Rusch's Recovery Man, and the new annual edition of Gardner Dozois's indispensible Year's Best Science Fiction series.

D'Amassa's Fantasy page also has new reviews, including Violette Malan's The Sleeping God, Brandon Sanderson's The Well of Ascension, and Marion Zimmer Bradley's Ravens of Avalon by Diana L. Paxson.

D'Amassa also has a page of Horror reviews, which has been updated to include Cherie Priest's Nor Flesh nor Feathers, Julie Kenner's Demons Are Forever, and more.

(And that's not all D'Amassa reviews -- I don't usually link to them, but he also has pages covering Mysteries, Non-Fiction, Other Fiction, and Movies/Games/Etc. I'm not sure how he manages to read and review so many books, but I suspect that he's actually a post-human distributed intelligence...)

The Solaris blog, When Gravity Fails, reprints (as a scan) the SFX review of Eric Brown's Helix.

Tachyon Publications reprints the starred Publishers Weekly review for Ellen Klages's collection Portable Childhoods.

Tachyon also pointed me to this set of Publishers Weekly reviews, which covers a whole bunch of this year's "Best of" volumes (from such esteemed editors as Gardner Dozois, Sheila Williams, Rich Horton, Hartwell & Cramer, and VanderMeer and VanderMeer) right at the end.

Subterranean Press reviews The New Space Opera, edited by Gardner Dozois and Jonathan Strahan. [via Strahan]

Cory Doctorow of Boing Boing reviews Ken MacLeod's new novel The Execution Channel.

Very nice to see you continuing the linkdumps. I'm not just saying that because of a certain review linked at SFFWorld. ;)
