It has only been a short while since we revamped the SF Site. The list of reviews has grown and some readers have expressed an interest in looking at the various types. In order to help you out, we've created a page where each type of review is together along with a brief note about them. For your convenience all their reviews are listed here.

For those of you who follow specific reviewers and their opinions, another page, Feature Reviews Sorted by Reviewer, laid out in a similar fashion to this one has been added.

The definition of non-fiction can be a little vague. Here, we've looked at books about science, unexplained phenomona, TV and movie picture books and pirates ('cause everybody loves pirates).
