F.A.C.T. and Books

Reviews and Access

In order to provide our members with information about some the significant literature available, F.A.C.T. has decided to post links and reviews of some of the books that we have found to be of value, and to provide facilities for purchasing the books. To this end, we have requested review copies of recent and new books, and provided reviews (and recommendations) with respect to those. In some cases, where we have not been able to obtain review copies we will provide a some sourcing of books that may be of significance.

As well, in order to allow you to purchase the books more easily and for F.A.C.T. to raise some funds, we have also decided to become Associates of some of the on-line booksellers. Accessing the books we have reviewed, or indeed any book, through the F.A.C.T. website will provide F.A.C.T. with some modest funds at no additional cost to you. The booksellers are discussed briefly below, and even getting to their site through ours to purchase a book will provide us with some funds. Note that not all books are sold through mass distribution channels, so look for the "author's" link as well with each review.

If you are an author and wish to provide a review copy of your book, please email us and we can discuss having your book reviewed too!
