Lew’s Book Reviews

Being a collection of occasional reviews, mostly of contemporary fiction.

I’m the author of OUTSIDE THE GATES OF EDEN, the cyberpunk classic FRONTERA, and the award-winning GLIMPSES, among other novels. I’ve also published short story collections, journalism, and comics. Virtually all of my work is available for free download at fictionliberationfront.net. For more information, browse to lewisshiner.com.

“Seriously, listen to Lew. He’s better at breaking down what works (and what doesn’t) in fiction than anyone I’ve ever met.”
