Books Needing Review   |   Instructions for Reviewer   |   Submitting a Book for Review

If you see a book you would like to review, make your request to Book Review Editor.

REVIEW POLICY: Because of problems with a few reviewers, there is a strict review policy. Those asking to review these books are thereby agreeing to this policy. Reviewers who do not return reviews to me according to schedule will be given three options:

  1. provide a review,
  2. pay the going rate for the book so we can replace it, or
  3. send the book back to the book review editor ASAP.
