In the indices, books that are recommended are emphasized and books that are highly recommended are highlighted. (Some browsers may not distinguish these.) Some of the indices are approaching 40k: if you have a slow network connection then I recommend the subject index or, for return visitors, the list of the latest reviews.

Unless otherwise stated, my reviews are based on a full reading of the work in question. Reviews of encyclopedias, dictionaries and other reference works are based on selective reading and general use, usually over a period of a year or more; and reviews of periodicals are based on at least a year's issues.

My motivations for writing reviews are various and what I read depends very much on what grabs my fancy when browsing bookshops or publishers' catalogues. I do like receiving free review copies of books from publishers and authors, but I only read and review the books that I want to, and accept no financial remuneration for doing so. If you are interested in having me review a book or books, send me a description or a catalogue. My postal address is on my home page.

Comments on and criticism of my reviews are always welcome.
