All book reviews by @imyril50 Book Reviews80%Reviews PublishedProfessional Reader

A guide to how I rate reviews can be found here.

I am open to requests from traditionally-published authors, their agents and/or publishers. All reviews will be my honest opinion, and books received for review will be clearly flagged as such. I will not host guest posts or giveaways for authors whose work I have not read.

Am I right for your book?

I will only accept adult speculative fiction, scifi and fantasy for review (yes, I read and occasionally request more broadly, but very, very selectively).

I prefer narratives that show a range of genders, ethnicities, sexualities, dis/abilities and indeed races (non-humans, hurray!) in a positive light. I am not a fan of grimdark, military SFF, comic SFF or romance-heavy narratives. I’m wary of books dominated by male characters, although I try to keep an open mind.

I reserve the right to decline to review books that do not appeal to me.

Want to contact me?

Please email me at imyril at onemore dot org if you would like me to review your work, providing a synopsis or link to more information. Please be specific if you require a review within a certain period. I will get back to you as soon as I can to confirm my interest/availability. I am currently up to my eyeballs in work, so am unable to guarantee a quick turnaround.
