Finding SF Book Reviews

I've been trolling the internet off and on for a couple months looking for places that do sf book reviews. There doesn't seem to be any one place that has a list of mags or online sites that do them. I'm considering fixing that problem in the process of my own research. I have to find the information anyway. My publisher doesn't specialize in SF/F, so they don't have those kinds of resources. I figure if I have to compile all this myself, I need to keep track of it for next time. Why not use it as a tool to drive readers to my blog/website in the process? I know HTML and I'm not afraid to use it! :)

Where do you go for SF reviews? You can help me build the site. And readers can report broken links or folded mags.

All suggestions welcome. Even, "That's a bad idea" or "It's already been done right here, why couldn't you find it?". Hey, if you give me a URL that has all this info already without having to click on each magazine and go to their site to see if they do reviews, I'll send you a copy of my book, Awesome Lavratt for free.

Thanks for the reccomendation on my blog, already done a little research and put Jasper Fforde on my to read list. Certainly sounds promising.

You have good taste in science fiction(IMHO), have you read any Peter F. Hamilton? Does some very good space opera style science fiction.

Ann,

Here's a SF/F blog that might be of interest to you:

http://www.deepgenre.com/wordpress/

I wouldn't say that it has many reviews on it, but you might want to add it to your blog reads.

If you are interested in doing reviews on this blog you might consider checking out these two blogs that specialize in romance books as you might get some ideas from them. I happened to discover these blogs a few months ago and I enjoy their posts even though it is a genre I don't normally read.

and

That last one cracks me up a lot.
