Only reviews of Indian short stories originally written in English that have been collected and published in book form will be accepted.
Reviews of the following will not be accepted:
- Individual stories published in any form of media
- Retold stories, folk tales, and fairy tales
- Stories translated from any of the Indian languages as they do not represent the direct expression of an Indian sensibility in English
In-depth critiques that examine as many of the literary qualities of the stories as possible are preferred. Plot, characterization, atmosphere, themes, style, and the approach of the writer should be addressed.
Reviews that have been published previously in print, in online journals, and on personal blogs are acceptable.
