Please send requests for review copies of publications and published reviews to:

We are endeavouring to implement more environmentally friendly practices and so our preference is to provide digital review copies, but hard copies can be sent if there is an accessibility issue. However, print review copies are not available for books published more than three years ago. For those within Europe, we often experience delays at customs and cannot guarantee that customs charges will not be applied, but these can be refunded by our distributors.
