Jamy Ian Swiss Book Reviews by Jamy Ian Swiss

Customer rank: +3

Unless you have been hiding in the basement for the last decade, you know Jamy Ian Swiss has been writing insightful, well written, educational, funny, and opinionated book reviews for Genii magazine. Swiss, soon to begin his ninth year of book criticism, began reviewing books for Genii in June of 1994.

Now you can own the complete collection of book reviews, from 1994 through 2001, in one convenient ebook. In addition to 217 reviews, you’ll receive "A Millennium of Magic Literature," a special, comprehensive feature Swiss wrote for the January 2001 millennium issue of Genii, as well as an introduction written expressly for this collection that will give you new insight into his approach.

This review collection comes with fully hyperlinked title-index and author-index. Whenever a reviewed book is mentioned elsewhere in the collection, you will find a convenient hyperlink to the actual review. Whether or not you subscribed to Genii during these years, you’ll love the convenience of owning the complete collection of reviews all in one place in this easily-searchable, electronic form.

You also want to check out Michael Close In Review, another review collection which gives you a second opinion.
