My Blog

Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

The Book Cave Final Episode


The Book Cave #300 airs this week, and Ric shuts the door on this popular podcast – for now. It had a long run, and introduced many new pulp writers and their fiction to anxious listeners. Ric Croxton and Art SIppo were instrumental in many firsts in pulp fandom. Their enthusiastic reviews and interviews helped promote not only the new writers and New Pulp, but also promoted the original pulp magazines and their characters and authors. In 2010 & 2011 they were the recipients of the ECHOES Award. They never had a bad word to say about anyone or their books, and can be proud of their many, and truly monumental accomplishments. Visit The Book Cave at The archives will remain up for a period, but may eventually be dropped. Art Sippo will continue occasionally with his own podcast, Art’s Reviews  We want to wish Ric and Art the best in all their future endeavors, and hope that all of you will drop them a note of thanks. God Bless.

Tom & Ginger
