Listed below are the books received for review since the last update, which was on 17 May 2017.

There are eighteen new titles and seven of them have been written or edited by women, taking our totals for the year so far to eighty eight books received, thirty one of them with a female by-line (35%).

The corresponding figures for the magazine are forty one titles reviewed and nine of them either written or edited by women (22%).

If all goes to plan, in the next issue of the magazine (#59, out in July) Case Notes will focus on the work of female writers and narrow that gender gap.
