>Galleycat has a piece on a Las Vegas writer doing two different–very different–reviews of a book about his city, one for USA Today and the other for Las Vegas Weekly. I did that a couple of times, reviewing the same book for The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books and the New York Times (the Times didn’t care so long as its review was published first) on the grounds that the audiences were so different, but it’s really not fair. It’s not fair to the book if you hated it, it’s not fair to competing books if you liked it, and it’s not fair to the reader if you contradict yourself. Plus, reviewing the same book twice is hell.
