Writers of Sci-fi, Fantasy & Speculative Fiction: Gigantic List of Review Blogs –– Check Them Out: SF Review Blogs List––A Comprehensive List of the Major Reviewers of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Speculative Fiction

Numenon Cover

Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Money. Accidental sci-fi.

I never thought I was writing fantasy or science fiction. When I wrote Numenon, a book about the richest man in the world meeting a great Native American shaman, I thought the more spectacular bits were write-ups of my meditation experiences. Those who meditate know that visions with lights and Hollywood-type special effects are normal.

Much to my surprise, when the reviews started coming in,  Numenon was reviewed as fantasy. Well, wait a minute! I was aiming at literary fiction.

When I wrote The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy, I realized I’d crossed a line. A story set in a pre-Apocalyptic world some two hundred years in the future whose title refers to an angelic extraterrestrial is definitely sci-fi. Or fantasy.

Not only had I crossed a line, I liked it. I started reading science fiction and fantasy and found that the really good stuff was as emotionally/personally engaging as literary fiction. Not only that,  it was FUN!

I’ve decided to devote space on Your Shelf Life to blog articles about science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction, as well as writing by the authors of the above. And reviews. I already post reviews on Your Shelf Life. Now I’ll be doing them more often, and inviting guest reviewers to pitch in.

For your edification, I will now attempt to add the SF Review Blogs List, so you’ll be able to get in touch with pretty near any SF/Fantasy Blog you want. Including mine.
