Reviewers: Greg Slade

My interests are wide-ranging, so I've probably got reviews or comments in every section of the Christian Fandom site. Even so, I like science fiction best, so you're most likely to find positive reviews by me in the Science Fiction section. On the other hand, since I'm interested in science, I tend to be merciless when it comes to reviewing SF books which have scientific "howlers" in them. In fact, sometimes I have to think long and hard before finding anything positive to say about a title. (I generally try to have both positive and negative comments about every book, since every book has some flaws, and [almost] every book has something good in it.) For examples of work I like, see the pages on How Like a God, Premonition, A Ring of Endless Light, That Hideous Strength, and Shivering World. For examples of some of my more blistering reviews, see the pages on The THOR Conspiracy, The Evangeline Manuscript, Y2K: The Day the World Shut Down, Tribulation Force, and Wormwood.

I have a web site where you can find out more about my background and interests. If you want to contact me, my E-mail address is grga@bluebottle.com (Note that this address is protected by a "whitelist" system. When the mail server receives your message, it will ask you to visit a web page and confirm that you are not a spammer. Once you have done that, your mail will go through, and you will not need to repeat the process as long as you send from the same address.) My "to-be-read" is quite lengthy (four pages, single-spaced, and two columns), but if you want to move a title up the queue, you can see if it's on my Amazon.ca wish list and have it sent to me.
