The Blog and the Blogger
My name is David Hebblethwaite, and I’m a book blogger from Yorkshire, now resident in the south of England. I mostly talk about fiction (both novels and short fiction) on here, with the odd bit of non-fiction. Most of all, I appreciate good writing and books that do their own thing. The type of book is less significant, but, if there’s a speculative flavour to much of what I read… well, that’s what I like.
The sorts of writers you’ll find featured on this blog include: Chris Beckett, Eleanor Catton, Rana Dasgupta, Margo Lanagan, Karen Lord, Ian McDonald, David Mitchell, Paul Murray, Helen Oyeyemi, Christopher Priest, Keith Ridgway, Adam Roberts, Ray Robinson, Amy Sackville, Sarah Salway, Robert Shearman, Nikesh Shukla, Mike Thomas, David Vann, Conrad Williams, Naomi Wood, and Evie Wyld.

I’m happy to accept review copies – but do please note the following points:
- I run this blog in my spare time, on top of a full time job. I make no guarantees as to when, or at what length, I’ll cover a particular book.
- I read many types of fiction (short stories included), but do have a read of the blog and see the list of authors above to get a feel for for what I like best. No pitches for poetry, graphic novels or YA, please.
- I don’t have an e-reader. I’ll accept PDF copies of works up to novella length, but anything longer has to be a print copy.
If all that is fine with you, feel free to get in touch.
