Ron Charles, fiction review editor for the Washington Post‘s book section, has announced a new monthly review column of SF/fantasy titles, to be written by SF author Nancy Hightower. The Post is also adding a monthly romance column.
Charles said, “For years, I’ve hemmed and hawed about how to cover genre fiction more consistently… Of course, we’ll never be able to satisfy the thirst of the most devoted fans, but I’m pleased to announce the introduction of two new monthly roundups dedicated to some of the most popular fiction in the country: science fiction & fantasy and romance. Each month, critics will present their favorite three new novels in these genres.”
Hightower’s first column is here, and covers books by Rachel Bach, James L. Cambias, and Scott Sigler.
