Science fiction and fantasy
About Warpcore SFIn September 2001 I launched Warpcore SF. It covers science fiction, fantasy, supernatural horror, science and steampunk in books, film and (more rarely) TV. There are reviews of material from the 1950s to the present day.
Who am I? Ros Jackson. I run this website, and I am the author of a number of fantasy books, including the YA novella The Secret Eater and Melody of Demons. I'm also on Goodreads, and Twitter @warpcoresf. There's a FAQ available if you have more questions.
RatingsThe ratings on this website range from 0 stars to 5, with 5 stars indicating the highest recommendation. Half-stars are not used. In order to help you get straight to the best books and films, you can browse the reviews by star rating.
This isn't the kind of website that gives nothing but praise to everything, but ratings skew high because I don't review books I don't finish.
I'm currently closed for new book review requests. Please check back in 6 months.
I review a broad range of science fiction, fantasy, supernatural horror and steampunk, including YA books in those genres. I rarely cover tie-ins. I do not review fiction that falls outside of the above genres. I occasionally cover popular science books, but no other categories of non-fiction. To get a good idea about the kinds of books that will get the best reception, check out the list of 5 star reviews.
I prefer to read ebooks in epub format. I won't read PDFs.

TimeframesThis blog is on partial hiatus, so I post approximately whenever I feel like it.
OtherReview copies do not get more favourable coverage. More recent reviews will mention the source of the book or film - whether it's my own copy, a library copy, an ARC (Advance Review Copy) or review copy, or something else.
I do NOT sell ARCs.
