Eclectic and striving never to follow paths into ruts, the OF Blog focuses on essays, reviews, interviews, and other odds and ends that might be of interest to fans of both literary and speculative fiction. Now with a cute owl for your enjoyment.
Since December is the month where all sorts of year-end lists are compiled and readers are threatened with a deluge of them, I thought it would be amusing to do a sort of "anti-list" in which readers can submit in the comments section reviews that they've seen online this year that were very poorly-written/argued reviews. Reviews can be from this blog (my feelings will not be hurt; the squirrels', however, might be a different matter) or anywhere else, such as this gem posted recently on SF Signal. Curious to see what reviews readers select as the worst they've read this year. Oh, and any genre is accepted. As long as the review is poorly-written, it will be considered regardless of the matter covered.
Let's see what readers here have found to be god-awful this year, shall we?
