  • Book Reviewers wanted! June 2007 listing.

    The ACG website is looking for keen, enthusiastic, literate and reliable reviewers for our mounting pile of tomes that need good places to live!

    If you think you have what it takes to join our crew of book reviewers, please send me a PM of the title you would like to review, along with your real name and address. I regret that for logistical reasons, this is restricted to North American readers only as the books are currently stocked at ACG HQ (even I don't get to see them as I'm in the UK!).

    Books sent out for review are yours to keep, on the proviso that:

    1) Reviews should be no less than 500 words
    and

    2) Reviews should be submitted to me within a month of receipt of the book.

          Just a reminder, we still have some books looking for a home. In fact, one reviewer has already submitted his piece and is having a SECOND book sent out to him!

                  Attention!

                  List updated once again.

                  Note to all those who have recently requested second (or third) books for review, these are being dispatched ASAP - I'm back from my hol's and working through my PM's and E-mails. Thanks for your patience.

                  Thanks also to those who have sent their reviews in already.

                  Please can I have an update from all those who are due to send in their reviews?

                      UPDATE!

                      We now have a dedicated forum to coordinate book reviews so no further updates will appear here. Only prospective book reviewers will be able to see it. If you have reviewed a book for me in the past or have a real interest in doing so in the future, please let me know by PM so I can place you in the appropriate usergroup. I'm trying to remember all of those who have done reviews previously, but I may miss some of you so please sound off!

                      Thanks!

                      Dr. S.
