Tales from Absurdia
Review Policy

Current Status: Closed for Requests

Terms & Conditions

  1. My reviews are not promotions, nor are they a guarantee of a good score. I will make plenty of noise about books I love, but I’m also not shy about posting negative reviews. So, if I agree to review your book, expect a fair and honest write-up. Please see my Review Rating System for more information.
  2. I will aim to publish my reviews within 3 months of receiving the copy.
  3. I reserve the right to DNF your book and not publish a review. This does not happen very often, but if it does, it’s probably for the best. In this situation, I am more than happy to return my review copy to you.
  4. I am a UK-based reviewer and prefer receiving printed copies, but I do appreciate that this isn’t always feasible. I am therefore open to eBook versions – especially if you’re overseas.
  5. My reviews will be published exclusively on TalesfromAbsurdia.com .


I will consider most requests, as Tales from Absurdia is not a genre-led blog.

However, please do not send me erotic literature, horror, or content with gratuitous violence.

I am particularly partial to the following:

  • Literary Fiction
  • Philosophical Fiction
  • Contemporary
  • Sci-Fi
  • Fantasy (excluding grimdark)
  • Metafiction
  • Non-Fiction
