Books Received - An Update

24th Jan, 2017

Listed below are the books received for review since the beginning of 2017.

There are fifteen books in total, eight of which have been either written or edited by a woman (53%). And, though I'm not going to check, I believe this is the first time ever that an intake of new books has seen female combatants outnumber the male. I don't expect this state of affairs to last, but it's an auspicious start to 2017.

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.
