Review Requests

For the most part, the books reviewed on this site are done primarily out of personal interest or research interest, however Speculating Canada has been receiving a growing number of author requests for novel, novelette, and short story reviews. It is exciting to see such a huge interest in this site and it is therefore now possible to send in a request for a review of an author’s work. Please find the parameters for review below:

Please contact Derek Newman-Stille first by email to inquire about a book review. Derek can be reached at dereknewmanstille (at) gmail (dot) com .

Book reviews are dependent on reviewer availability, so please make email contact before sending a copy of your novel, novelette, or short story.

Review requests can be sent in advance of the publication of a book.

All books for review are required to be sent in paper copy by mail to the address below.

As a reviewer of Canadian Speculative Fiction, I ask that the author be either a Canadian citizen, a Canadian ex-pat, or a landed immigrant living in Canada.

Most reviews will be done by Derek Newman-Stille, PhD student for the Frost Centre for Canadian Studies, Trent University, however, if there is a particular genre or story type that is more suited to one of our other reviewers, you will be contacted to ask permission for that person to review your book instead.
