Listed below are the books received for review since the last update, which was back on 30 December 2014.

And, although some of them first appeared in 2014, I'm going to include them all in the figures for 2015.

One change I am going to make for 2015 is that I will no longer list Science Fiction titles that, for whatever reason, publishers have elected to send to me instead of to Andy for possible review in Interzone. They're distorting my figures.

So, we begin the 2015 campaign with fifteen new titles, of which one and a half have been written or edited by women (10%). We kicked off 2014 with 32% female contributors, a figure that steadily declined throughout the year, and on this showing that downward trend looks set to continue. I hope not.

Standard Disclaimer: As ever, people are welcome to query me regarding the possibility of a review by writing to with the usual caveat that an expression of interest does not guarantee if or when a review will be done.
