At Kirkus: My Not-So-Secret Love Affair with Speculative Fiction Omnibuses

I wasn’t truly aware I had a book buying addiction until I started amassing a collection of science fiction and fantasy omnibuses. Read the whole sordid story over at the Kirkus Reviews blog in my new essay My Not-So-Secret Love Affair with Speculative Fiction Omnibuses.

And don’t judge me! πŸ˜‰

  1. Very nice article, John.

    If you haven’t read them, please note the Jennifer Roberson’s Cheysuli novels are (or were at the time I bought them a few years ago) available in omnibus volumes of two books per. Wonderful stuff, and as you say, it’s great to be able to just turn a page or two and continue on. Plus the original paperbacks were hard to find at the time I came across these.

    My one reservation is the size of these books can make them awkward to handle. Yes, ebook versions solve this, but I prefer physical books when possible, and thick paperbacks can crack and be difficult to hold in my preferred thumb-and-two-finger style.

    John, thanks for the recommendations! I love “omnibii.”
