Ros Jackson of Warpcore SF has compiled a useful guide listing which book bloggers review which types of book. Speaking as a publisher, I find this an excellent innovation. If I have a new book I am trying to get reviews for, this would be a very good place to start. Hopefully other publishers will find it useful too.
You’ll note that I’m not on the list. That’s because I buy most of the books I review. Also I have a bookstore, which means large numbers of fine books drop into my computers on a regular basis. Much as I love books, I don’t want to have to go through the whole dealing with publishers thing again, unless I know the people concerned very well.
On the other hand, if you have a book blog and would like to be sent more targeted selections, Ros would probably be delighted to hear from you.

I’m horrified that I was left off and not asked.
Okay, not horrified. I guess I am too much of a small fish. Or the lack of a single website with my reviews makes me invisible…
Several years ago, Jack McDevitt compiled a similar (and much lengthier) list for SFWA, although I don’t believe anyone has maintained it. That list included both on-line and dead tree reviewers.
