Book Reviews

Welcome to Silverlock Book Reviews. On this page you’ll find links to the reviews I have written. If you’re a publisher, author, fellow-reviewer, bookseller, or just like reading my reviews then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/l_silverlock. (I’m happy to read proofs of upcoming publications too.)

The books are mainly fiction, as that is the genre I write in, and the department I used to lead at https://twitter.com/WaterstonesOxf, but you’ll also find a few history and science books here too. Please click the links to navigate the reviews on the blog, or scroll down on the Home page.
