The Golden Age

Floating Admiral

This page is to collect my reviews of books from authors from the Golden Age. I’m stretching things a bit in terms of the definition – basically, if they wrote some books in the Golden Age, then I’ll list all of their books here. I’m also going to include US authors who are sometimes overlooked when the Golden Age is concerned.
