    Evidently on the back cover of the UK paperback edition of Christopher Farnsworth's Blood Oath.

    I was investigating the next Weber book, a YA Harrington novel, and I came across the Wonkipedia article for the anthology that has the short story that became the novel. Funnily enough, the article links to SFFWorld.

    And we also apparently have a Twitter account, but I've not seen it linked to nor mentioned anywhere.

    Yes: Rob reviewed it! Haven't seen the link though, so thank you for that.

    And the Twitter account is #SFFWorld

    Now following! Wasn't aware we had the account, though, so I wasn't sure if it was real or false.

    Perhaps it's our best kept secret!

    I have seen SFFWORLD in my bedroom on my home computer, AND I saw it on my fathers computer at his home once!

    I saw it at work!

    I know, I couldn't believe it! Some utter pilchard had logged in and left the PC running! I think their name was "Beerwill" or something absolutely ridiculous. They were writing absolute rubbish, too.

    Here's a new one to me: the UK edition of Kevin Hearne's Hounded, due September 2011.

    Well done, Rob!

    Cool, I'm glad this books are reaching the UK. The first two were terrific.

    On the back of the UK paperback edition of Kate Elliott's Cold Magic.

    Not sure if its Rob's or mine, though: it's only three words: 'An entertaining read.'

    Also on the back of Jasper Kent's third vampire book: The Third Section, although without 'SFFWorld' written underneath.

    The quote's been used on the other books in the series, though.

    Library Journal has a nice article on the genre:
    SF/Fantasy’s Epic Journey: High fantasy makes a comeback, sf searches for a renaissance

    About 2/3 down the page, where SF/Fantasy on the Web is discussed, SFFWorld gets the shout out

    That's cool, Rob. Library Journal: along with Locus and co. Pretty impressive!

    I still can't get over this.

    "An entertaining read." is the best quote they could find? That'd be like M&S saying their Christmas pudding is "alright, but nothing to write home about"

    Note: That's not a criticism of SFFWorld.
