The Centre for Cyberculture Studies published multiple reviews of books.

As David Silver describes the practice, "RCCS would routinely feature two,
three, four, and even five reviews of a single book. coupled with an
author response, these multiple reviews offer multiple perspectives into a
complex topic."

Published between July 1997 and December 2009, the reviews are still
available online

I post to Humanits in part to publicize the resource and also in part to
start a conversation about best practices. I am wondering it the readers
of Humanist know of other examples of publishing multiple reviews of the
same book.
