Welcome to Professor Morbius’s Book Review Blog.


Here, I write reviews of books I’ve read. Due to my tastes, these tend to be mostly science fiction and fantasy; but really, anything that catches my eye enough for me to pick it up might end up getting a write-up here.

I rank books on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. One Star is offensively awful; Two Stars is bad to mediocre, or a mixed bag; Three Stars is basically decent, or good but unexceptional; Four Stars is great; and Five Stars is excellent.

Needless to say, all reviews express solely my own opinion, and you are welcome to disagree.

A special tag, “Dead Lesbian Penalty“, marks books which introduce a lesbian character for the sole purpose of killing her off. That’s a pet peeve of mine, and such books receive a one star penalty to their final score.
