Books Available for Review
Below is a list of books available for review. If you are interested in reviewing one of these books, please email us at email@example.com to request the book. If you are interested in reviewing for us, we suggest you send a list of your top two or three choices–because books are sent out continuously, your first choice may not be available. Please note that some review copies are available as password-protected electronic copies. In these cases, we have noted the file form at the end of the entry.
Reviews should be roughly 800 – 1000 words; review essays (covering several books) should be roughly 1000 – 2000 words. Please note that we also invite reviews of recent films, television, video games, or other popular culture items of interest dealing with elements of the supernatural in any form. Reviews are normally due in six weeks.
If you are interested in reviewing a book that you do not see here, please feel free to contact us with a suggestion; we will do our best to arrange to have the press send you a copy of the book for review.
