Books Received - An Update
Listed below are the books received for review since the last update, which was back on 1 June 2012.
Twenty four new titles, taking our total books received for the year so far up to one hundred and eleven, which compares with forty four titles reviewed in the three issues of Black Static published so far this year. In rough terms, this means that any individual book has a less than 50% chance of being reviewed.
Only three of the twenty four new titles are either written or edited by women, giving us a running total of twenty seven out of one hundred and eleven (24%), while because of a female led Case Notes in #27, currently 43% of the titles I've reviewed have had a female byline.
