I Almost Missed This

In Memory Of IROSF

It was just a month ago that I posted about the passing of IROSF, the Internet Review of Science Fiction. The last issue, February 2010, mentioned that Lois Tilton's short fiction reviews were going to show up at LOCUSonline. But I guess I thought they'd show up in March. Instead, I found today that her first column was dated Sunday 21 February 2010.

If you need to catch up, the second and third installments of her reviews are here.

I like Lois' reviews. They do a good job of capturing the essence of a story. And she is well read, allowing her comments to assess important aspects of all the worlds that the authors are trying to invent. I find I enjoy the reviews whether I've read the stories or not, and whether I agree with her conclusions or not. And often I will make the effort to track down intriguing stories that I might not have otherwise run into. To me, that's the mark of a good reviewer.
