Fantasy Cafe is dedicated to reviewing and discussing speculative fiction books of all kinds—fantasy, science fiction, and young adult speculative fiction. The name came from the fact that I can often be found reading a book and drinking a latte—or writing about a book here and drinking a latte. When the site first began in a different location in 2007, I mainly read epic fantasy but my reading horizons have broadened since then and I’ve found myself reading a wider variety of speculative fiction books.
Since 2012, Fantasy Cafe has hosted an annual April event focused on women in science fiction and fantasy that has featured guest posts from authors and bloggers throughout the month. Renay from Lady Business began a project accepting submissions for favorite speculative fiction books by women during April 2013, and we’ve put together a list of over 1,000 books recommended during these events.
I try to review most of the fantasy and science fiction books I read here. In addition to that, I just write about any SFF book-related news I find interesting, and occasionally I have interviews with authors or author guests.
Fantasy Cafe is on Patreon and rewards include bookmarks, mugs, voting on book review polls, exclusive content for patrons, and proofreading.
