What Is The Forgotten Fiction All About?

 

P.S.

If You Want To Know A Little More About How The Forgotten Fiction Book Reviews Are Different & Our Mission . . .

We are really trying to achieve two main goals here:

  1. To bolster every author who puts out a work of fiction long after the initial buzz that accompanied its release and to bolster small press and fine press publishers that make works of art out of the books we love. For newer books, the 60+ day thin is something that is usually left to an expensive public relations manager or company and even with all of their powers of marketing / PR are limited in where they can place the book months after its launch. We also focus on limited edition and small press publications, like Hard Case Crime and Suntup Editions, that are also reviewed for their physical beauty, as well as the work’s literary art and often illustrations, so long as the initial work has been out 60 days.
  2. We love books of fiction and as readers we have too little time to read ALL of the books that fall onto our tentative To-Read List. The Forgotten Fiction hopes that with our Yea or Nay stamp, we can definitively give our unbiased opinion to you as a recommendation to aid your decision to move a book from The Stack and onto, or off of, your Must-Read List. Goodreads is fantastic, we practically live in it, but at TFF we feel that we supplement Goodreads in three vital areas. We have professional writers giving an in-depth review of each work of fiction, and the reviewers at TFF work hard to earn your trust; we also do not bother with ratings, because we give you a clear answer as to whether we think you should read the book or not; and for our small press book reviews, we review the myriad physical aspects that make up the finer editions of the written works.
