Disclosure Policy

The Federal Trade Commission requires that I disclose any relationship I have with product manufacturers or service providers. So, here goes:

  • BestScienceFictionStories.com is a personal blog, written and edited by me, which reviews science fiction short stories and related items. Sometimes I accept and publish guest reviews, but I make these reviews known in the individual posts.
  • I am never paid to do a review and I never accept money to review a story. I invest my own time to read and review stories. Mostly I pay out of my own pocket the cost to secure and read these stories, but sometimes authors and / or publishers will send me free copies of stories or books to review – these cases are disclosed in the individual reviews.
  • I am affiliated with Amazon.com and eBay.com. If I create a link to one of these web sites in a review, I get paid a commission if you purchase anything from them after clicking on the affiliate link.
  • I display ads from Google.com on my web site. If you click on those ads I may get paid a commission.
  • Sometimes I review stories written by people I know personally. These cases will be disclosed in the individual reviews.
  • Sometimes I write reviews of stories or books for people who have previously written reviews for me. These cases will be disclosed in the individual reviews.
  • No advertiser will ever influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.
