Whispers of Wickedness reviews (archived)

From 2004-2008 close to three hundred items, mostly small press books or issues of independent magazines, with a focus on horror and dark fantasy, were reviewed for Whispers of Wickedness magazine. When WoW ceased publication in 2008 (and with the site due to disappear in mid-2009), the reviews were copied (unless the author requested their removal) both here at the site of The Future Fire, and at the British Fantasy Society archives.
