Review policy
While we accept review copies of books, if they are received without prior agreement, we will not guarantee they will ever be read or reviewed. We will accept pre-release review copies by prior agreement and would expect our review to be ready soon after the book is released. We reserve the right to choose which books to read and review, although we welcome both recommendations and external reviews.
