      Welcome to the September reviews bulletin.

      Reviews are an important part of the site: there are the authors who sit waiting with baited breath and fraying nerves, and there are our intrepid reviewers to think of. So before looking at the stories: Thank you all for your work, authors and reviewers alike!


      Stories in review
      As I type this, there are 13 stories waiting for reviewers:

      (remember to log in before you follow the link).

      Of course, member participation is crucial for reviews. The more people are involved in reviewing, the more opinions are represented. Just as importantly, having more people involved means that stories pass through review more quickly - which is good for everyone.

      If you are an active reviewer, why not go and check out a story?


      Becoming a reviewer
      If you're not an active reviewer, but think you can spare a bit of time... – even if you just review one or two stories in a month, every review is welcome. If you are logged in, you can sign up here:
      http://www.henneth-annun.net/members/review/index.cfm
      if you've been a member of HASA for thirty days or more.


      Put one in, take one out
      By submitting a story for review, you are asking nine other members to read and evaluate it. So why not do for the other authors who have a story in review what you'd like other reviewers to do for you: check out one of the stories already in review and give it a read. Put more simply: put one in, take one out...
