“A critic is someone who never actually goes to the battle, yet who afterwards comes out shooting the wounded.” Tyne Daly

I’ve recently begun writing for The Clothesline – Digital Arts Magazine.  Most of my reviews will be found there now. I will be reviewing lots of Adelaide Festivals (eg Fringe, Cabaret, OzAsia, Adelaide Festival, Writers Week) as well as writing lots of book reviews. Head over to the Reviews Page to see what’s new.

I will still occasionally write reviews for this blog, and of course you can see all my old reviews below.



On this page is a list of all the book reviews published on this blog. Check back for updates, or follow my blog on email to get notices when new reviews are published.
