I want to be honest and transparent, since this issue has been raised.
I do work for Tor.com - they are connected with Tor the publishers, but are a separate website and entity, with the aim of trying to build a SF/F community and connect with fans. I get paid by Tor for my Malazan re-read work. I spend approximately three hours a week doing the Malazan work and am paid a small amount for this.
I would like to state that I remain impartial in terms of reviewing, but I know me saying and you believing will be two different things. I like to think that my reviews til now have shown impartiality and honesty.
But I want to say right here and now that if you find you cannot read my blog any longer or trust my reviews, then I do understand and I wish you well. There are some tremendous book blogs out there with no links to any specific organisations, and I invite you to check out Speculative Horizons, My Favourite Books, OF Blog of the Fallen and The Speculative Scotsman for excellent examples of entirely impartial blogs. If you want to stick around and still see what I have to say, then that's cool too. Entirely up to you!
