The following reviews focus mainly on haiku and tanka books, and were first published from about 1990 onward. As a result, they include ordering details that may no longer be accurate. These are reviews I’ve written; for reviews of my books written by others, links are provided on the Books page, where available.
If you have any comments or questions, please contact Michael Dylan Welch.
