Listed below are the books received for review since the last update, which was back on 6 May 2014.

There are twenty four new titles, of which three have been written or edited by women, taking our totals for the year so far to a nicely round one hundred books received, twenty and a half of them with a female byline (21%).

That compares with fifty one books reviewed in the magazine so far this year, of which fourteen and a half have been written or edited by women (28%).

And at this time last year, more or less, we'd received one hundred and thirteen books, of which twenty six had been written or edited by women (23%)
