Author/Title index

BelEdit Book Reviews banner

This is an index of all books reviewed on this site, fiction and nonfiction, by author and title.

From highbrow to lowbrow, great classics to zombies, all my favorite novels have one thing in common: a good story. I don’t care how much of a literary artist an author is, or how bad their spelling may be. If they can tell a really good story and tell it well, I’m in.

It doesn’t matter if a novel’s story or plot lines stretch credibility so long as it succeeds in suspending my disbelief. Fiction doesn’t need to be hyper-realistic. Suspension of disbelief depends not solely on whether a plot line is credible, but on the overall credibility in terms of character, psychology, themes, setting, etc.

Build me a world I can believe in.
