Enter into Neth Space and you will find thoughts and reviews of books and other media that fit the general definition of speculative fiction. This includes the various genres and sub-genres of fantasy, science fiction, epic fantasy, high fantasy, hard sci-fi, soft sci-fi, new weird, magical realism, cyberpunk, urban fantasy, slipstream, horror, alternative history, SF noir, etc. Thoughts are my own, I'm certainly not a professional, just an avid reader avoiding his day job.

Gollancz SF Masterworks: What I've Read
Since I'm going to be an active participant on the SF and Fantasy Masterworks Reading Project blog, I thought I might give an idea to the readers here just what I have read or at least own out of the books added to the SF list (I’ll do the Fantasy list in a separate post). This list will include books coming out later this year. In addition, the roman numbers indicate books originally released as part of a hardcover subset, so there will be some duplicates on this list. Bold means I've read it, italics that I own but haven't read it, and plain means I don’t own it and haven’t read it. Links will be provided to reviews that I have written, either here or on the SFF Masterworks blog.
