OUR REVIEW POLICY: We will consider for review any speculative fiction novel published in an SFWA Qualifying Professional Market or analogous UK market. If you are an author, agent, or publicist with a qualifying house and would like to send us a review copy, please use the form below to contact Kat. Queries which do not qualify or do not include publisher information and a description of the novel will be ignored. We don’t want to be rude, but please understand that we receive many requests every day and it takes too much time for us to reply to all of them. We’ve all got regular full-time jobs — this is just our hobby. (This article pretty much reflects our own experience with “indie” publishing and the reason we tend to ignore indie requests.) We accept print, audio, or digital galleys/ARCs for review. Our preferred method of receiving e-galleys is through NetGalley, where we are a listed Review Organization Accepting NetGalley Titles.

OUR COMMENT POLICY: We value our community here at FanLit, and we want the comments section to unfold naturally. We value the debates and differences of opinion in the comments section. That said, we don’t want the comments to turn into a free-for-all of negativity and unpleasantness where people are reluctant to participate.

1) No spam please.

2) No ad-hominem attacks, repeat posts, off-topic rants, user identity theft, death threats, or hate speech.

3) We reserve the right to remove or edit comments.

Thanks to artist and author Janny Wurts for creating our dragon logo.
