fantasy and science fiction book reviewsFantasy Literature reached its fifth year of existence this summer, and I thought it time to do a little celebrating. I love this site a great deal, and it excites me to no end to see it grow like it has. FanLit has played a huge part in my development as a writer, and as a reader. I really appreciate the hard work our team puts into making the site so great. Besides reading and writing reviews, each of us has our own site jobs — editing, columns we’re in charge of, interviews, and many behind-the-scenes tasks that keep us producing daily content. It’s all managed by Kat, whose dedication and hard work has enabled this site to continue for as long as it has.

I would like to thank our readers, too. Without you guys coming to the site every day we would have faded into obscurity some time ago. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the content over the last five years, and I hope you will be around for many years to come.

Which brings us to today’s questions: What brings you to FanLit now, and what would you like to see us do in the future? Post your response in the comments below for a chance to win a free book from our stacks. Since this a special fifth anniversary, we’ll be giving a book to five commenters.
