James Nicoll review
I was curious about the James Nicoll review, so I had a look at his website, where he states that he accepts payments to $100 review a book. Given the wealth of material out about this novella, I'm very uncomfortable with using a reviewer who charges to review books, unless there is some reason why this particular reviewer needs to be included. Thoughts?
First thought: it's possible Bilby thinks I get paid by the authors or publishers to promote their books. I don't: authors and other people too closely connected to the production of a book cannot commission reviews of said books.
Second thought: Does Bilby think reviewers at Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and so on are reviewing for free?
