Product Description

Product Description

A bumper collection – over 150,000 words! – of book reviews, many of full essay length, by the two-time Hugo winning and World Fantasy Award-winning co-editor of The Encyclopedia of Fantasy and author, among much fiction, of such recent nonfiction works as Corrupted Science and (forthcoming) Denying Science.

Scholarly, iconoclastic, witty, passionate, opinionated, hilarious, scathing and downright irritating by turn, these critical pieces are sure to appeal to anyone who loves fantasy, science fiction, mystery fiction, crime fiction and many points in between ... and who also enjoys a rousing argument.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 19 Jan 2013
By Thomas McLean - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
John Grant writes with humor and it shines thru in all his works. I first became aware of him from his brilliant 'Directory of Discarded Ideas' back in the late Seventies. Still have the hard bound book and it is highly praised. This book has some of the same undertones and make it a must have for folks like me. In fact, I have also purchased all his available works that are available electronically. I frequently delve into them and enjoy the offbeat writing. If you like something a little offbeat this it it. This review applies to all John Grants works. The 'Directory of Discarded Ideas' is a rock solid 5 Star book.
