Reviews. Thousands of reviews. has always been a review site: I've been posting book reviews since January 1996 and movie reviews since April 1997. There are now 1387 book reviews and 3155 movie reviews on this site. This page tries to make sense of these megabytes of content.

If you're new to this section, or if you have questions, I suggest taking a look at My Reviews FAQ for a list of answers to such burning questions as Can I send you my book for review? (No.) Why do you keep writing them? (Practice, fun and on-line memory backup) and I think that you suck, do you agree with me? (In some circumstances). A word or two about Movie Reviews tries to explain why and how those came to be on-line —along with a few snotty tips on how to develop reviewing skills.)
