Good Week for Five Rivers

Today's blog entry from Five Rivers good indication of how much this micro-publisher has grown just this year: Two story collections from H.A.Hargreaves (Canadian SF pioneer); reissue of bunch of Ann Marston's classic fantasy; horror collection from J.W. Schnarr; two novels from Matt Hughes; story collection by Susan J. Forrest; and Michell Plested's Mik Murdoch: Boy Superhero (one of the novels I edited); and a novel by Mike Fletcher. Plus some nonfiction. Not bad output--quantity or quality--for a tiny press. Decent covers too.

Reviews and Defamation

As a sometimes reviewer, found this page at Caslon Analytics (an Australian consulting firm) highly entertaining: covers what one can and cannot be sued for in a negative review, with some hilariously malicious reviews included as examples. Their page ondefamation in novels may also be of interest to readers of this blog.

(Thanks to novelist Chris Hoare for bringing these to my attention.)
