You can now read the Review Aside comic strip on Comic Fury. Review Aside will still be published monthly on Bookangel, but it was getting rather lost among the books. We took the decision to put it somewhere where it can get more readers, and hopefully send a few back to us. As a bonus, […]

reviewfeature-mar2017


Well it has been a mixed year. While we got off to a strong start, with our IT guru out of action for six months from June, there were few updates to the site and the membership elements have paused. It wasn’t all bad: we have over 3,000 more twitter followers, an integration that got […]


As a result of merging the Bargain and Free book sites, you will see new badges on each book’s page that shows whether they are Bargain, Free, or Upcoming. We added these because we were losing track of which one was which, so we wanted something to make it obvious. The calendar for upcoming will […]


You might have noticed a change to the header recently, with a link to Bargain books. We’ve now combined Bookangel and BargainBookangel into the same site, meaning the 99p runs can be featured on the site along with free ebooks. We’ve done this for a few reasons: it maintains the same URL for submitted books […]


a.k.a. the comments that don’t quite make it into a review… Updates Monthly. with thanks to wpclipart.com


We have recently completed the server move to a dedicated server. This has had a few unexpected knock-on effects for the emails, which are now run entirely in-house. The reason our email subscribers appear to have dropped from 10,000 to 8,400 is because we are now running two email systems. We have created a seperate […]

zombie-header

At the time of writing seventeen of our twenty long-term free horror books are zombie-themed. They’ve even shambled their way into sci-fi, action, fantasy and children’s. Shambling might not be the right word any more. The modern zombie isn’t the lurching corpse of Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead”, or more lately of “Shaun of […]

Review Aside a.k.a. the comments that don’t quite make it into a review… Updates Monthly. with thanks to wpclipart.com


You might have noticed a slight pause in new reviews coming out. This is because we’re planning to move the site to a new dedicated server. This will help the site in a few ways: 1) It is cheaper. The deal we have is half the price of current hosting. 2) It is faster. With […]

The newspaper column for June 2016 has been released, which is a little bittersweet as it will be unexpectedly the last column in the run. This is because this edition of the paper covers three months, as a summer special, and the next paper is due in September (if this matches the student readership’s residence, […]


cat-detective

Independent female sleuths, not just sidekicks, have been around since the start of the genre, pre-dating the appearance of female police detectives in real life: Susan Hopley was solving crimes in 1841, fifteen years before Kate Warne would join the Pinkertons, and the literary Mrs Gladden was busy in 1864, while the first woman didn’t […]

ghostfeature

The idea of a murder victim’s ghost returning to solve their own murder or punish the culprit is nothing new to horror fiction. However towards the end of the twentieth century a shift occurred: ghosts didn’t just come back to solve their own murders, they then stuck around to solve other people’s, most notably in […]
