About SFF Concourse

SFF Concourse is the webspace of Colorado-based writer Gary Tognetti

I review science fiction and fantasy literature and blog about related topics.  Generally, I likes to discuss the formal qualities (plot, character, etc.) of the books I read, but be warned: my politics slant left-to-Marx, and these leanings occasionally find their way into my writing.

I do not do solicited reviews. If you are an author I have heard of, I am most likely aware of what you have out there and I will either read and review your book/story, or I will not. Please do not email me asking for a review of your book. Anyone who does so will be politely referred to this page. Also, please do not follow up by insisting that your book is really amazing and I need to get on the train now or I’ll regret it; you will less courteously be referred to this page a second time. If your resistance to social cues (such as people saying exactly what they mean) and/or basic common sense persists, and you respond to this second dismissal in all caps that when J.K. Rowling and Stephen King are drooling all over your feet you will bury me so deep that my own mother will forget I exist, you will be ignored and blocked.


Please feel free to leave comments on posts wherever you see fit; however, understand that only respectful, good faith conversation is permitted. Disagreements and dissenting opinions are allowed and encouraged, but trollish acts (such as personal attacks, harassment, derailing, sea-lioning, etc.) against our bloggers or any other commenters will not be permitted. We have no patience for such behavior and offenders will be deleted and blocked without warning. Site administrators have sole discretion in determining what constitutes acceptable or unacceptable behavior and such decisions are irrevocable. In other words, y’all are grown-ups so fucking behave yourselves.
