No books to review

You’ve read about struggling writers not being published, and about struggling readers with far too many books to choose from — well here is a new one on me — a book reviewer who isn’t being sent books to review, even though the New York Times prominently features quotes from his reviews in its book advertisements. David Montgomery of the blog Crime Fiction Dossier is a very good book reviewer, and invented the blurb machine. What are you playing at, publishers? Send him some books!
