Announcing a new review policy
The penultimate straw was being told that if we were unable to recommend an author’s book, then we obviously weren’t smart enough to get it because he’d received nothing but five star reviews from everyone else.
The last straw was receiving – on the same day – two requests for reviews both of which asked us if, as well as reviewing the book, we could also help out by spotting any typos, grammatical errors, and just generally editing the thing.
So now we have a new review policy. At heart, it’s the same as the old one EXCEPT we are adding a new regular column where we will focus on some of the books we don’t review and explain why. In pithy and occasionally pointed manner.
And people who ask us to help edit their books while we are supposed to be reviewing them? They may be eviscerated.
