Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.


The Pack

Who are we?

Our reviewers include writers (published and unpublished), journalists, librarians, actors – as well as wildlife painters, craft-workers, opera-buffs and dog-lovers. What unites us all is a love of and interest in books.

What kind of books we are interested in?

With a range of reviewers of such diverse interests, there is very little that Vulpes Libris is not interested in. We cover everything: from picture books to literary fiction; from chicklit and thrillers to works of philosophy and political writings – you name it, we write about it.

Book Foxes
To view our current and past Book Foxes – go to the drop down menu on the left hand side.

Vulpes Libris is also fortunate enough to welcome a diverse selection of guest writers, including historians, actors and engineers among others, many of whom make return visits. You may find some of our regular Guests on the drop-down menu also.

    I wondered whether you would be interested in reviewing my debut novel, Castle in the Clouds (see web site above).

    It is a novel based on the lives of five patients in rehab and has been favouably critiqued by psychologist/writer Oliver James. It is also being featured in a number of magazines.

    I would be happy to send you a copy when it comes out in June.

    With kind regards

    I’ll ask around the other Foxes, Monica.

    Just found your fantastic site. Was wondering how one becomes a writer for it and if I may link to your site from my own blog?

    Thank you,

    Hello Jemima,

    Glad you like Vulpes and of course you may link to us.

    As far as becoming a writer for us is concerned, it’s by invitation.

    We’re always on the look-out for people with a wide and lively interest in all things bookish and the ability to write well about it. As you’ve no doubt noticed, we have a very catholic spread of interests between us.

    We have guest writers as well, of course.

    I’ve bookmarked your blog … ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great blogsite and always something of interest here so I would like, if I may, to add you to my modest collection of links on my website.

    One thing intrigues me though – a definite lack of men about the place, particularly in the list of contributors and the links.

    Is this a deliberate policy or just the way things have developed?

    All the best

    Thank you, Ken – and of course we’d be delighted to be added to your modest collection. ๐Ÿ™‚

    As far as the lack of the male of the species is concerned … it’s just the way it’s developed, honestly – not deliberate policy on our part at all!

    I suppose basically it’s because it started with one woman – Leena – asking her friends to join her on the site – and all those friends were, not entirely surprisingly, women.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see things changing in the future. 8)
