Dark Matter By Blake Crouch Forges Great Sci-Fi

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch forges great sci-fi, as a 21st century high point of transformative art continues the tradition of science miracles having a very good and very bad fallout. Dark Matter provides a visceral thrill ride empowered by science the way Michael Crichton's work has for decades. I do not throw around the name of Crichton often, because no one is quite...

NOT FOREVER, BUT FOR NOW by Chuck Palahniuk: a dark reality

NOT FOREVER, BUT FOR NOW by Chuck Palahniuk: a dark reality that calls on readers to look inward and outward, to scrutinize our contemporary world, and to act if we want to change things for the good or the very worst of living creatures, especially the joeys.

BOYS IN THE VALLEY By Philip Fracassi Is A Chilling Classic

BOYS IN THE VALLEY by Philip Fracassi is a chilling classic. Fracassi’s tale is labeled as horror, but is much more than that: this is a deep, gritty coming-of-age story that delves its own mark on readers. In 1905, when the priests at a Catholic orphanage in rural Pennsylvania are brought a possessed man to heal, things go horribly wrong, for the clergy and for the 30...

What Is The Forgotten Fiction All About?

P.S.

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

We are really trying to achieve two main goals here at The Forgotten Fiction Book Reviews:

  1. To bolster every author who puts out a work of fiction long after the initial buzz that accompanied its release and to bolster publishers, especially small press and fine press, that make works of art out of the books we love. For newer books, we either offer up preview reviews before the book comes out, sometimes followed by more elaborate reviews after release day, or we post a review after the release date so that long after the initial 60+ day marketing push for the book is over our review lasts and continues to be plugged into the online book-verse, something that is usually left to a 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.
  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.
