About Liz Bourke

Hail and well met, strangers and friends! I write about books (and occasionally other things) for money - but if you're here, you probably already know that, and I want to thank you for your interest and support.

I write regular reviews for Locus magazine and, as well as a weekly column, Sleeps With Monsters. My work has also appeared in Vector, The Cascadia Subduction Zone, Strange Horizons, and the-now-sadly-retired

Once upon a time, I set goals on this page and offered rewards slightly more tangible than my thanks. Then in December 2017, Patreon made it obvious that whatever else this platform may be, it's clearly a bad idea to rely on it for long-term stability. I decided to dedicate more of my time to exploring other ways to get paid for my work. Reviews still happen here, but they're not tied to any schedule or metrics, and your support isn't paying for any one specific thing: it's paying for me to have more time to think and talk about books in a variety of places.

If you enjoy my work, a collection of my reviews, Sleeping With Monsters, is available from:
