Tales from Absurdia
Review Policy

Current Status: Closed for Requests

Terms & Conditions

  1. Tales from Absurdia accepts books from publishers of all sizes, including the self-published. 
  2. I will endeavour 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. In this situation, I am more than happy to return my review copy to you. This is a very rare occurrence.
  4. I prefer receiving printed copies, but I do appreciate that this isn’t always feasible. eBook copies are therefore accepted – especially if you’re overseas and want to avoid unnecessary shipping costs.
  5. Reviews are not promotions, nor are they a guarantee of a good score. I’m very vocal about books I love, but I’m 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.
  6. Reviews will be published on TalesfromAbsurdia.com and/or Goodreads .


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
