San Francisco Journal of Books is dedicated to bringing you thought-provoking reviews of new fiction and nonfiction from across the publishing spectrum. We believe that the divide between literary and genre fiction is often arbitrary, that good writing spans subject and genres, and that book culture is alive and well in America. San Francisco Journal of Books aims to be part of a growing network of serious online review sites that is filling the void left by traditional newspapers.
REVIEWERS: If you would like to review books for us, please use the contact form below. In the message field, provide a brief bio, along with links to at least two previously published reviews. Please tell us what kind of books you are most interested in reviewing, and how often you would be able to review (once a month, twice a month, four times per year, etc.) If you are selected as a reviewer, we will make the books available to you prior to publication.
You may also submit the full text of a proposed review here.
While we cannot pay at this time, we hope to be able to do so in the future. We especially welcome reviews from traditionally published authors; links to your website and your book will appear alongside your review. (We are not accepting reviews from self-published authors at this time.) We also welcome reviews from graduate students in literature and creative writing.
AUTHORS, PUBLICISTS, and PUBLISHERS: If you would like to submit a book for review, please enter the title, author, publication date, and contact information in the form below, and we will respond as soon as possible. If the book is currently available through NetGalley, please let us know.
