Again, they’re mostly for Interzone but a few are intended for reviews in other venues. We won’t have the space to feature all of them but that doesn’t mean that they’re not worthwhile books. Sometimes I wonder if it would be physically possible for one person to keep up with reading all of them, even assuming that they did little else; it would be fun to try, though.
