Time for that very annoying question that many of us have posted 11 September 2004 in Author Q & ATime for that very annoying question that many of us have by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

Those sites already do receive ARCs, as do others like Cheryl Morgan's Emerald City (which just won a Hugo for Best Fanzine) and a few others of a blog/review nature. It's just surprising that more of the major SFF sites that revolve around messageboards don't receive more ARCs. Needless to say, I'm working on changing that, because I certainly review the books I've been sent (all two of them, including one from Scott) and I know wotmania is one of the largest fantasy-type websites in terms of page views (at around 25-30K daily). But the publishers don't tend to think along those lines, I've noticed.

And I do agree that the extra time might be a boon more than anything else. What's 4-5 months if it means more quality editing and more demand? <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post
