    We've been told that there are books out there which mention reviews of SFFWorld.

    Some members have asked for these reviews to be highlighted.

    So: over to you. Where have you seen and which books have you seen SFFWorld reviews?

    Photos would be appreciated; though just a place and a name/title would work as well.

    There is a quote from Rob's review of it on the second page of praise in the Pyr/tp edition of Ian McDonald's River of Gods.

    I was lucky enough that Scott contacted me in 2003 when The Darkness that Comes Before was only available in Canada to review the book. I was totally blown away by the book and a blurb from my review has appeared on most of his books since. :D

    On the front of their page, Pyr writes...

    "Pyr is doing a fantastic job of publishing books in the US previously unavailable to American readers....Pyr has an impressive mixture of respected, established veterans alongside new voices in the genre.” - SFFWorld.com

    Top billing went to Pat though.

    Found two today - One that I was sort've aware of, the other I wasn't:

    Esslemont's Return of the Crimson Guard (HB edition)

    Brandon Sanderson's (HB edition) of Hero of Ages, on the inside front dustjacket cover.

    One Rob, one Kater, I believe.

    Yes and yes. I corresponded with the Tor publicist Dot Lin after seeing that and she mentioned that she'd wanted to get one of my blurbs on a book for a while. I was very chuffed!

    I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but I loved how Bakker mentioned specific sffworld members (i.e. Leiali, Mithfanion, and Saintjon) in the afterword (or was it the preface?) to the Thousandfold Thought.

    Well Mithfanion deserves free books for life from the dude. If it had not been for him dredging up some old SE interview in which he mentions Bakker he might have faded into obscurity with his first book.:) Don't know what the other two did?
