Bastian's Book Reviews: Cardiff SF/F Book ClubThe Science-Fiction Book Club offers two major benefits: books that are available in editions costing substantially less than retail even at discount retailers like Amazon , and--at least equally interesting--occasional omnibus editions of older series or related books. In many cases, those omnibus volumes are the best way or, often, the only way to acquire clean new copies of some excellent works. To my mind, they alone make membership well worth while. In truth, much of what the club offers as new selections will not ever make its way onto the lists on this site--but a definitely nontrivial percentage will. I am a member myself, and long have been: that is perhaps the best reference anyone can give. Incidentally:many people, I have found, shy away from book clubs on the supposed ground that one is likely to forget to send in the monthly reply even when no book is wanted, and so may end up with unwanted books. That is no longer a worry: there are no "automatic" book shipments: you only receive books you expressly order.

As the real world grows each day stranger by leaps and bounds, the skewed secondary worlds, fantastical lands, and alternate histories that are the realms of science fiction and fantasy have only grown more vital, not only as a means of escape from blaring headlines, political turmoil, and the crescendo of climate change, but as a means of understanding them: truths more clearly viewed through the lens of fiction.
