Starfire Reviews--The Archive

Welcome to my archive of book reviews. Previous reviews will transfer here as I replace them with new ones. In an effort to clean everything up, I have reorganized them in two different ways: alphabetically according to title and alphabetically according to author's last name. To go to the Author Archive, click here.

The following abbreviations will indicate which category each book originally appeared in:

SC = Tomes of Spellcasting
SS = Tomes of Shadowstalking
SH = Tomes of Starhopping
OR = Tomes of Other Realms
CA = Tomes of Costumed Adventurers
MS = Tomes of Miscellany

Dates indicate when each title first appeared in Starfire Reviews. Books new to the archive will be marked with a or .

Click on the letters of the alphabet that marks the first word in each title. I have followed convention and ignored articles like "the" and "a" if they were the first word.

Contact me if any of my reviews are missing.
