Reviewers Wanted

My apartment is now officially overrun with books, and I need to get rid of a bunch of books gracious publishers have sent. Below are ones I'm certain I'm not going to get to, so if anything appeals to you on the list, and you'd like to read it and write a guest review for The Mumpsimus, send me an email, and I'll let you know if the book is still available. Here's the list, with Amazon links so you can find out more if you're curious:If any of those sound appealing, and you'd be willing to write a thoughtful review (not just a summary), then let me know and I'll send you the book.

Update: I forgot another whole pile, so here are some more books. I'll use the comments to keep track of which ones are spoken for.Update 6/21: Most of the books are now taken. Remaining are:
Dead in the West and The Boar
the proof copy of Rivers of War
Settling Accounts
Running from the Deity
The God Particle

  1. The Rivers of War and A Complicated Kindness have been taken, but the rest are still available.

  2. Actually, I lied about Rivers of War -- Nick will get the hardcover, but I've also got an advance proof of it that I can send to anybody else who is interested.

  5. Woken Furies and The Fourth Circle are now spoken for. This is great -- we're going to have a marvelously diverse group of reviews and reviewers in the coming months. Everyone from professional writers to people who've never written a review before in their life!

    And if a book disappeared that you were hoping for -- they've gone fast -- don't despair. I'll probably need to start doing this once a month or so.

  6. I was actually briefly a student of Cokal's, so I'd be very interested in reviewing hers, if that's all right.

  9. The Greenstone Grail will be sent to the Netherlands -- the first non-U.S. review to come from this group of books.

  12. If it's still available, I'd be happy to take a shot at reviewing Lansdale's Dead in the West.
