Since quite a few people ask in emails about FBC's review policy, I want to point out that there is no such thing; the only thing that matters is if one of the four of us who are currently the main reviewers *is interested in the book in cause*. As for what interests us, the past reviews found in the Review Index form the best guide, though interests do evolve in time. Also the "best of lists" done by us separately or together and which you can find in the "FBC Best Of" widget on the left hand side of the main page may help.
Excerpts or links to such (Kindle, Smashwords, author's website) are very important since at least personally I would never consider an unknown book without at least a small sample, however enticing the blurb would be.
As for comments, I *hate* censorship, but profanity laced comments are not allowed since civil discourse is important too and things degenerate fast online.
Spam is not allowed either, in particular comments that contain advertising with the only exception if the advertising is related to a particular book(s) and is made by the author/publicist of the respective book and the book is related with the post the comment refers to.
