The Blog and the Blogger

My name is David Hebblethwaite, and I’m a book blogger from Yorkshire, now resident in the south of England. This blog used to be called Follow the Thread, but I changed it to David’s Book World for 2015, to reflect a change of emphasis. You can read more about the reasons for that here; but essentially the aim of this blog now is to help me explore what kinds of writing speak to me the most, and why.

This makes it quite difficult to sum up the kinds of books that will feature here, because the blog is partly about working that out. I can say that I’m particularly interested in translated/international fiction, and that the books I like tend not to be straightforward narrative realism. My books of the year posts might give you an idea.

Besides this blog, I write for Strange Horizons, Shiny New BooksWe Love This Book, Fiction Uncovered, and Vector.

I’m also on Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads.

Review policy

I’m happy to accept review copies – but please note that I run this blog in my spare time, on top of a full time job. I try to be timely, but I cann’t guarantee when, or at what length, I’ll cover a particular book. If that is fine with you, feel free to get in touch.
