New Index

Happy New Year everyone!:-)

Needless to say, it's been an awesome year for the Hotlist. The blog has reached the 600,000th page view milestone last week, which means that we've packed a lot of asses in those seats!:p With 42 book reviews and I don't know how many interviews and giveaways, it's been another busy year for Yours Truly!

To all you newbies, here's what happened in previous episodes!

May 2008 be everything you want it to be!

Thanks for the effort of putting up a list! I see that there's quite a few bits to read on your blog.

Cheers!

Not sure if it's awe-inspiring, but it's 3 years' worth of SFF stuff, courtesy of little me!:-)

You so need to update fully to the new Blogger, Pat, so you can just do tags like "2005 Reviews," "2006 Reviews," etc. for every review of a given year. Then at the end, you can just have short category links in a single post. I'm going to start doing that with my 2008 reviews. First one up shall be Shadowbridge, I believe, although I have about a half-dozen that do need to be written for late 2007 releases.

Patrick,
Great stuff... really interesting site. Any plans for a RSS feed off this site (or am I just missing it?)?
Cheers, Bernard

FYI - The link to the review for "The Last Wish" is directed to the wrong page.

Link to After Dark directs you to Night Watch instead

Yvan said...

Pat, would you consider adding the ratings to the index page ?

Andrew said...

Pat, thanks for taking the time to do theses reviews. If you have any free time, could you also find a way to display them by alphabetically by author?

Thanks again,
Andrew

Hello, I am making a newsletter for school and I am planning to feature Melanie Rawn and her books in it. Is it ok if put your interview with Melanie Rawn in my newsletter(assignment)? I promise to give you proper credit. I am really hoping that you would say yes.

Thanks so much for this index. I was reading your 2006 Best Of list and thought, "Wait, there's another Bakker interview?" The one in Jan '09 was one of the most thought-provoking I'd read in a long time. I thought, it'd be nice to see a list of interviews, and when I looked where the link should be, there it was.

As mentioned above, a sorted list would be nice (especially as the list grows), but a quick C+F search brought up all the ones I wanted, and now I'm printing them up.
