A note to publishers: We like to receive book page links, sell sheets, book catalogues, and any other paper or digital marketing information — but please do not send physical copies of your books to The British Columbia Review at this address. We have no budget for postage. We are purely a digital intermediary between publishers, authors, reviewers, bookstores, and readers. Once we have found a willing reviewer for your book, we will ask you to send a review copy directly to the reviewer at their mailing address.  — Thanks!
